It's the first day of Golden Week, but John and I have already had the most wonderful weekend. The weather was gorgeously sunny so we spent as much time as we could outside being dreamily in love with Tokyo. After a visit to the dermatologist and an early lunch we ended up in Shimokitazawa, a cute neighborhood outside of central Tokyo with fun little shops and more people than cars in the streets.
We went to Bear Pond for some delicious hispter coffee, and while we were there noticed a cucpcake shop right across the street so we popped in and got a couple for later. Much of the rest of the afternoon was spent people watching, taking pictures, and shopping. I'm more of a window shopper, but John scored a rare bottle of bourbon, a denim jacket, and a leather ID case.
On Sunday we couldn't quite recapture the bliss of the day before, but in the afternoon we took a bottle of champagne (ice bucket and all) to the park behind midtown and soaked up as much sun as we could.
