our humble abode
I've been meaning to post photos of the place we've been living- so here they are. It's a very quintessential Tokyo experience. Set-ups like this are called 'weekly mansions'.....so that's fun. About 12 square feet of space, and the train tracks are literally about 3 feet away from the building. When a train goes by it sounds like a tornado. It feels like a movie and not real life sometimes.
Around the corner from this apartment there is a Japanesey French Bakery (they are everywhere here) that I can't resist dropping in on frequently since it's right by the train station. They have tons and tons a delicious pastries both sweet and savory, for under $2!
kouign amann- $1.40
breaded white fish with asparagus and cheese, in a brioche bun- $1.90
candied orange on top of a sweet bun/ cake hyrbid with a layer of orange marmalade in the middle- $1.60
pain au chocolate with the chocolate still hot and melty- $1.60
ham and cheese croissant/ bun thing- $1.80
yogurt drink with aloe chunks in it- $2.10
can you believe how cheap good food is here!?
