Some photos of things we've been up to lately- mostly taken on iPhones because I never carry our camera around anymore when we go out unless it's some photo-destined event. The ones with the yellow dress are from the MoshiMoshi Nippon festival- celebrating all things kawaii and Japanese pop culture, etc. It was a fun day- I don't think I'd need to go again, and I was definitely expecting more, but I think it was all worth it for this photo with the kawaii yellow monster. I also ended up getting photographed for the Japan Times and some other websites I've already forgotten (d'oh) and got interviewed for a TV channel.
The ones in the southwest dress are from a saturday wandering around aoyama/ omotesando. I found this dress at a secondhand vintage shop when we spent a weekend in yokohama and I couldn't believe my luck. As soon as I saw the fabric it made me feel a little pang of homesickness and once I tried it on and it fit so well, I kind of felt like I had to get it since it felt like a little piece of home. We visited a farmers' market where Ryan got pizza from a little VW pizzabus, and then headed over to ayoama flower market teahouse for some tea and treats. The atmosphere was so beautiful- it felt like we were eating inside a fancy greenhouse- and the floral flavours in the desserts and tea were so nice and interesting. I got rose jelly and violet rose tea and I couldn't imagine a prettier setting in which to enjoy them
