6 months of 2018 memories and august wish list

Laziness!  Ok, rather than dwell on why no updates of late, let’s move on to actual updates.

6 months of 2018 memories

To continue with my favourite theme, I’m just gonna leave the photos there. No explanation needed.

august wish list

  • carry on reading – I have been reading a lot this year
  • go to a museum – I want to go to the soseki one
  • finish the shirt dress by merchant and mills
  • climb mt fuji (I know)
  • go to the recycle shop and drop my stuff off.

How has your first half of the year been?  How scary ...

fruit parlor fukunaga

For my husband’s birthday/our wedding anniversary we went to Fruit Parlour Fukunaga – you can follow them on Twitter here.  It was delightful!  As you can see, we went greedy!

First up we have a cherry parfait and (large, I think) plate of fresh fruit.

Then the fruit sandwiches which I liked very much. I hadn’t ever had a fruit sandwich before coming to Japan, but now I have delighted upon them, I have become quite fond. You can find them at the supermarkets and conbinis too if you don’t have time to go to a fruit parlour. The ...

Mt. Nokogiriyama

Have you been wondering what I did during this year’s Golden Week? Going out of your mind imagining all the amazing things I probably got up to? Well the wait is over! It must be good if it’s taken me this long to get something together, eh?

Well, we went to two places – Yokohama and Mt. Nokogiriyama.  I have no photos of Yokohama, so you can imagine the amazing time we had.  No, that’s not fair, we did have a good time eating our way about and sitting in the park.  I don’t think I would rush back though. ...

loving hut – tokyo, japan

I’ve realised recently that I have ridiculously long arms, like an orangutan (I’m getting a red line under this word and I don’t know why) so I had to cut them out of the photo. They are too distracting.

Anyway, enough about me (it never is) and more about the food. I went to Loving Hut in Jimbocho with my husband. We didn’t go for the lunchtime buffet, but I think we would next time, we went for dinner instead. I think it’s only open on Saturdays, at select times, so do check that it will be open if you ...

pancakes at accueil

I went to Accueil in Ebisu for pancakes.  I had the banana and caramel sauce pancakes with vanilla ice cream, see above.  It was really nice and it was huge!  Me being the greedy sod I am at times asked for the regular size.  The waiter explained that size was for two-three people.  So, I’m not quite THAT greedy or brave to still go for that one, so I changed to the half size which I’m bloody glad I did because look at it!  I couldn’t eat it all and I was laughing so much when he brought it out ...
