A to Z

A day after my birthday, August 10 to be exact (wow, way long time ago).
I went to A to Z cafe at Aoyama with Patty.
Its a cafe by the famous Japanese artist, Yoshitomo Nara and graf.

Definitely a must visit cafe for all Yoshitomo Nara fans, I spotted many tourists coming here and taking many pictures too :D

with his original sketches


The meal, salmon lunch set. 1000 yen.








 

Aoyama is located near Omotesando and Harajuku, so we decided to walk there.

Harajuku Takeshita street, as crowded as always.

Harajuku crossing seen from Tokyu plaza rooftop

The creative cat street or ura hara

Ben & Jerry ice cream for free!

There was a gaien mae fireworks festival too that day, we wanted to see a little but didn't want to join the packed crowds so we tried to find far away spots with less people. 

on the 2nd floor of a closed shop, that building blocked the view T.T

We walked a little bit further and watched part of the fireworks here ;)


I can't believe it's already a month since my summer break started, only another month left :(
and I promise to be back blogging soon, before the summer ends, I have to finish blog about all of these:
1. Sunday at Koenji
2. Tsukepasta and Ebisu 
3. Summer at Odaiba
4. etc (lol)

p.s.: I've got a sad news, I failed JLPT N1 T.T

  2. Oh I am familiar with Yoshitomo Nara's work! Wowie, what a cool cafe! The working desk would be such an exhibit!! The salmon set looks so delectable, with so many little side dishes, what a lavish treat! I really like the atmosphere of this cafe, from your photos haha, it looks so cosy and down to Earth. Don't you love street shots? It's such a great panoramic view of the city and it's interesting to see where people are headed in a non-stalker way haha. Free Ben and Jerry's? Lucky duck! Damn that building that blocked the fireworks T^T I'm not a big fan of crowds so I'd happily settle for the building being there haha. Oh wow, but then you got a good shot of the fireworks! Failed? Oh no, that only means it should motivate you, don't fret :D

  5. Wow, I'm not familiar with any of Yoshimoto's works (although they do look familiar). I'm really interested in researching about it more though, those sketches are so cute!! Ha ha. Is JLPT 1 the most advanced level or the beginner level? I always get confused about the levels, but either way, I hope you get to take it again soon and pass! :3
