The rainy season has just started in Tokyo. However, a portable shrine was marching lively in the neighborhood of Andon! : ) Ryoko
Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Ebisu is one of my favorite art spots in Tokyo. I very enjoyed the exhibition “Presence or Absence” by Tokihiro Sato the other day. It’s held until July. You can get there by Hibiya line directly from Andon Ryokan. Enjoy! Ryoko
I visited 21-21 design sight to see the exhibition “Kome – The art of rice” It was absolutely amazing! We can see how rice is important for Japanese people through some wonderful art works, photos and film. I was very impressed with the documentary film. Highly recommend it! Ryoko
There are many nice public bath houses in the neighborhood of Andon Ryokan. “Hinodeyu” is the nearest one which is equipped with various kinds of bath such as a jet bath,medicated bath and so forth. It must be a great experience when you come to Japan! Ryoko

There are some nice coffee shops around Andon Ryokan.
A new Andon staff, Hotaru is also very good at making coffee. He sometimes makes tasty coffee for us using his own coffee set. It’s really pleasant time for me after hard work! Ryoko
