A Bathing Ape for Kids

BAPE recently started a kids clothing line and opened up a new shop called BAPE Kids in the Jingumae area. Miniature versions of all the adults clothing, shoes and accessories with Baby Milo prints. I was excited about getting something for K & A’s baby cousin, but to my disappointment, the smallest size their stuff […]


I never really went to a lot of malls before since I didn’t really live near any. But this time around we were on the Island for most our stay so we did lots of mall time. Roosevelt Field Mall is one of the bigger ones on the Island, but sometimes I find malls that […]

Tasty Sandwiches

Does anyone in Tokyo know where I can find a sandwich plate like this Mexican pulled pork sandwich and preferably costing only around 700 yen? This is from a cute little Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn called Pequena. I don’t find many sandwich places around me. I sometimes miss even an average deli where I can […]

The Red Brick Warehouse

Window Shopping

Window Shopping

Hysteric Glamour, Marronnier Gate Building, Ginza We checked out a few shops inside Marronnier Gate. Arisa’s favorite shop was Hysteric Glamour, which does has a small children’s section. Nice choice! But bad for my wallet. I’ll wait for Grandma. Also quite noteworthy is the fancy Tokyu Hands in the building (but it’s called Ginza Hands) […]
