I did a few fun things on weeknights last week- I usually don't really like going out after work, but I think once or twice a week is really good to break the routine. I went to an India Pale Ale beer festival at one of my favourite cafes/cocktail bars Fuglen, but we suddenly got hungry and escaped to Arms Burger, located down the road, right across from Yoyogi Park.
This weekend was very slow and relaxing. I felt quite ill from the weather and perhaps lack of sleep (I've been really struggling to sleep lately, any tips?), so I took some time to recover and stayed home doing practically nothing but browsing fashion blogs and listening to music.
I've also decided to take a tea ceremony course. Ever since I experienced it in Kyoto (I probably forgot to post about that, but it was a nice thing to do), I've been wanting to learn the traditional way to serve tea (and drink it, of course). I was given some excellent recommendations for courses, but if you happen to know of other schools or teachers in Tokyo, please share! It's about time I do something more traditional besides getting dressed up in kimonos (I also want to take a kimono dressing class).
In a few months I'll have been living in Japan four years.

I'd eat them more often if they weren't ¥500 a piece. Gasp!
