Lost In Translation: Shibuya


View from Starbucks Shibuya

One and a half year that I’ve been living in Japan, I’ve been to Shibuya many times but never had a chance to experience the moment of “Lost In Translation”….The place where I could sit for hour just looking down at the crowd of people crossing the street from Shibuya Station to somewhere that I’ve never known.

The place to experience this moment is Q-Front’s Starbucks, 2nd Fl…..It’s famous that so many tourists had to wait for a seat. Thousands of people crossed over the pedestrain everyday but each time, there are various and unique people mingle among Gals and Salary Man…..So, that’s how interesting it is to watch and experience the rush hour moment in Tokyo.

Don’t Get Lost In the crowd!!!

British guests from Nagano



I met a super cool British guy when I was working today.
His name was Andrew and he’s been in Japan over 4 years. His mother visited Japan for her first time to see him and they are staying at Andon for two nights to travel in Tokyo.

Andrew spoke perfect Japanese and beautiful English.
He’s been stuck on snowboading and lived in Nagano for 4 years. He also teaches English at Uni in Tokyo.
He said that the beautiful mountains and perfect snow in Nagano have caught him and not released…!
I really got want to visit Nagano in winter in his talking…!

Thanks for nice “Oyaki”.
He bought some “Oyaki” which was Japanese-style bun stuffed with flavered vegetables and a typical local food of Nagano when they checked-in. We ate them together. It was a pleasant time : )

I hope to see you again!

Blythe Full Option!!!


Recently, there are some guests who like to buy Blythe Doll, but don’t know where to get it….As Newly Blythe Lover, well, All because of my lovely mother, I’ve searched for Blythe shops around Tokyo area and listed out as follow

Junie Moon Daikanyama (Main Store) and Shinjuku Marui-One, 4fl+ Blythe Gallerie

4-3, 1F, Sarugaku-cho, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0033 JAPAN

Tel 03-3496-0740
*Please make sure to call the right number.

Open Hour Tue -Sat … 12:00 – 20:00

Sun + Holiday … 12:00 – 18:00

Mon … Closed

It’s closer to walk from Shibuya New South Exit….This main store offers various kinds of Blythe and original Blythe acessory and face custom service.
However, if you want to look for more individual Blythe Clothing’s brands, I recommend to go to Yamashiroya at Ueno, chuo-exit, next to Marui Ueno, 5fl.
there are mini-gallerie of customized Blythe and so many clothes, but watch out for other doll’s clothings that might be sold at the same area.
Blythe is the doll that allows you to play with her beyond the imagination of creativity. I can’t wait to enjoy dressing her up with my mother.

Yokohama Hekkeijima sea paradise


I went to Yokohama where is one of my favorite place.

In this time I went to “Yokohama Hakkeijima sea paradise” which is an amusement park consisting of an aquarium, shopping mall, hotel, marina and amusement rides. It is located in Yokohama Bay and a new generation style amusement park..
It takes about 30min from Yokohama station.
There is a leisure land surrounded by nature. It is one of the top aquariums in Japan. There are so many things to do and experience.
There is a big water tank and it is possible to pass in that by the escalator. It was very fun and had a great time at there. I saw dolphin and sea lion show. White dolphin’s show was most impressive for me.
This is Yokohama hakkeijima sea paradise web page:
After there, I went to Yokohama bay side and there was really nice view!! I got down at Sakuragi cho station and ride on sea cruise to Yamashita park. It was also nice veiw. I recommend to visit there for one day trip.
