For the past several months Raku and I have been thinking of fun things we've wanted to do here and there, but instead of indulging we've been really good about putting them off in order to focus on our writing and finish our first drafts. To reward ourselves we scheduled a week of all the fun things back to back to create a celebration extravaganza. And now our week has finally arrived!
So far this week we've had lunch at cafe/florist shop with food far more delicious than I expected for such a lovely setting, visited Meiji Jingu - one of my favorite places in the city - that Raku had never been to!, and gone to afternoon tea followed by cocktails at the Park Hyatt in Shinjuku. The rest of the week will include wonderful events like checking out a bunny cafe, doing afternoon karaoke, going to Disney Land, and having a picnic of tiny foods! Ridiculous I know, but we've got something huge to celebrate!
Because so much fun is going to be crammed into just one week, I'll try to break out the highlights and blog about them individually so that they get their due. For the record, afternoon tea at the Park Hyatt was amazing and I can't wait to tell you all about it!
