The ‘hood
Posted on

On our first night we stepped out to look for food near the hotel. My dad told us to check out Marunouchi Brick Square, which is filled with upscale stores and eateries.
Tokyo’s magic never fails on me. As soon as we stepped out into the beautiful Fall weather, I knew why my dad likes this area. It’s so masculine and sosy.
The first thing that caught my eye was Comme des Garçons, which Sayoko told me to check out.
There are two Comme des Garçons stores in Marunouchi. This one is nearer to the Peninsula.

There’s Hermés

The beautiful flower shop. (Hint: please give me Christmas flowers!!)


The casual Joël Robuchon café, where I bought three bottles of salad dressing

We ended up in this hoity-toity place called Grill Ukai. Yikes! Good thing my mom was paying.


My sister and I both ordered grill wagyu (200 grams each), but couldn’t finish it because there was no rice and no Coke (read: umay). So sayang.

On the way back I saw Comme des Garçons again, now closed. Made a mental note to come back.
