Not so Rainy June

Turns out June is nearly over, and it seems like rainy season is also gone. I'm not quite ready for a full-fledged summer yet, I could take a bit more rain and tights and boots. Did I ever mention how disinterested I am with summer fashion? Colder months fashion has much better possibilities, what with the layering and darker shades. Maybe it's because I'm from Canada, and we never had enough time to explore summer styles. I could never live in a place where it's hot and sunny all year round, I think I'd be miserable. I think Japan has great weather overall, as you get a bit of everything, and you can still wear regular shoes in winter (and not snow boots).

I had another handful of fun days lately, which included a day trip to the beach in Odaiba, that artificial island in the midst of Tokyo Bay. Odaiba is a very special place for me, and it always reminds me of some late summer adventures, and I have always kept wonderful memories. It was fun to return after so long, and just soak in the sun, eat burgers and have impromptu photo shoots.

I also re-visited a local cafe named Chubby's, a few minutes walk from Shimokitazawa, near Daitabashi station. I had been there before, a long time ago, but had never returned as I didn't know how to find it. It's located in a tiny local street, surrounded by old buildings, but the cafe itself looks so modern, with large windows and a wooden interior, very Scandinavian looking. Their menu offers everything from meals to drinks, coffee and sweets, and they have art exhibits changing up every few weeks. They even have a small wine bar, and lots of sofas and comfortable chairs. I want to go there every day! I had the best peach tart (covered with fresh raspberries and blueberries, and you know how much that costs in Japan), along with a milk tea, and umeshu for a nightcap.

And, I had my hair cut last week, a long overdue salon visit so it feels great. It's extra short for the summer (well, short in my book) and as usual, the skilled Momo from Watanabe Hair in Harajuku worked his magic. I've been getting my hair done by Momo for now over two years, and he's the best stylist I've ever had. I happily recommend him to all my friends, and even people who visited Tokyo for only a few days. Getting my hair cut is such a treat, it now feels so soft and healthy.

I'm also back working out at the fitness club after a few weeks' hiatus, and that gym practically means private training sessions. The instructor makes me work so hard, and I never pushed myself that much at my regular gym, because hey, I didn't really have to.

I'm also super excited to go back to Canada in a few weeks' time, but I'm also starting to get nervous. I haven't been in my home turf in so long, and I think I'll get hit with reverse culture shock really hard.

In other news, I've been eating cold tofu almost every day. I just buy a nice block of tofu (not the cheapest one but a good one), garnish it with green onion slices, ginger and ajipon. How will I ever live without ajipon? How much tofu is too much tofu?

I'm sure you meant 'Tokyo has good weather' re: no snow boots haha. I spend 6 months of my japan life in my North Face. Also 100% agree with summer fashion, it's awful and I could wear absolutely nothing to work and still be a sweaty mess (and get fired in the process).

Ps Funashi is absolutely petrifying.

Omg, I live for summer! I love it so much. If I lived in Japan I would definitely live in the south :) Chubby's looks really cool. I'm glad you found it again!

I live for summer fashion because I HATE pants. I have so many pretty dresses in my closet and this so-called "summer" we're having here in Fredericton has only allowed me to wear bare legs a handful of times. I'm actually looking forward to the intense heat and humidity of Tokyo.

I agree! I hate summer! Yet I live in australia where winter is 2 weeks and only nights/mornings are cold errgh. That peach tart looks delicious! I shall have to explore shimokitazawa again, i tried last time In tokyo but i just didnt get why everyone likes it.. I do love koenji though! Cant wait to be back there in October!
