Hello Tokyo!
Posted on

Hello I’m in Tokyo with Grace!
Came here without a plan except to shop, eat, and see my friend Sayoko.
We flew JAL because we were scared of the recent computer glitch at Delta.

Japan Airlines

JAL vs. Delta
JAL 767-300 plane was so small but we had such a good flight!
But Delta business class feels much more luxurious than JAL business class.
JAL plane feels like a box, but I’ll take a safe non-bumpy flight anytime. Thank You Lord!
We landed at night. Unpacked my clothes.


I love the Ritz-Carlton bathroom

First thing the following day, we hit Barbacoa, my family’s favorite restaurant

Dropped by the A/D Gallery at Roppongi Hills, where I loved the work of Yasuka Goto

Quick snack at Muji Yurakucho which serves the best soft cream, in my opinion

Ever since I found out my left leg is shorter by .5cm, I’ve been obsessed with finding .5cm insoles, which Muji has in gingham!! Hoarded these! If there is anyone out there who’s been diagnosed with a shorter right leg, please leave a comment and I’ll send you the right insoles.


Following day: Lunch at Shake Shack Ebisu where line wasn’t long and I thought I could finish two single burgers (read: maling akala). Still the best burger in the world, in my opinion

Then a 15-minute walk to Le Labo in Daikanyama where I thought I could buy Rose 31 conditioner (maling akala part 2….grrr….) Beautiful store though

Had a slightly horrible experience at Café Kitsune which I’d rather not talk about. I still get shocked whenever I encounter rude Japanese people because I really don’t expect it. Let’s just say, never again!

Yohji Yamamoto saved the day. Doc Tere is right. I am liking this more than Comme des Garçons. Will invest more in Yohji from now on.

Love this coat

Cecile van Straten

Thanks, Minami-san!

Quick stop at the Mother Ship, Comme des Garçons where I saw our favorite shop girl, Yuka Ito.

Back to hotel. Had the most delicious chutoro bowl takeaway. Best eaten in pajamas


Good night for now.
