New vintage look collection

I am trying to make new collection to change a little bit feeling... I love these vintage look and how it turned out. For more detail see my etsy shop!

Tokyo Guide Book

So... The reason I decided to write about short little Tokyo guide even if I was living there and don't know well about Tokyo is when I went to look for a guide book in the book store there were not so much books... There's some but always listed one of the city in Japan. I thought it is a pity that Tokyo is a big city like London, New York or Paris but there's not so much information.. and so... I will be happy if my short little guide might help.
And if you would like some more information, I found this little guide book from Louis Vuitton. There's no photo inside. Printed in black and white simple and there's all kind of information. From traditional sightseeing spot to modern one. Or may be just reading the article which is inside is interesting.

Fish Market and Tokyo Tower

This is the last one.. Fish market! I think many of them who is interested in Tokyo suppose heared about it. It's the biggest fish market not only in japan but also around the world! It's located at Tsukiji. (near Ginza.) The nearest station is Tsukiji of Tokyo-Metro Ginza line. You take off the station and it's about 5minuite by walk from there.
When you arrive there, there are a lot of little shops selling kind of wired things, like, seaweed, vegetable, fish, beans, chopsticks, knives for cooking, kitchen goods, etc etc. It's very curious and you want to stop one by one. and then there's sushi bar too! If you arrive before lunch time I recommend to try one. They of course use fresh fishes and also you can feel the atmosphere of edo sushi bar!

Unfortunately when we arrived at the fish market it was already finished... I've read the other day that they doesn't want tourist inside fish market.. It's a pity.. but to eat sushi I think you can. I think just inside...

and then, when the stomach is satisfied, :) since Ginza is near it might be good idea to walk by there and if you want you can see "Kabuki". They also borrow a tape for the guide. and if you want to see just a part also is ok.. and not so expensive.

then take Tokyo-metro, again, Ginza line and go to Tokyo tower!

That day was beautiful day. a little bit cloudy but there was beautiful light..
And this is it! A little Tokyo tour guide. I hope you enjoyed!

Ghibli Museum

It seems that I finished writing about Tokyo... but not! :) I am very slow but we go ahead... This time is Ghibli Museum! It's museum of great studio of animation, Hayao Miyazaki! They are displayed how they make animation, film, idea, sketches etc etc... It's not too big and a lot of ideas. it's a museum not only children but also adult can enjoy! It's located a little bit outside of Tokyo. 20 minutes by train. (Sobu-sen (the yellow line) or Chuou-sen (the orange line) from Shinjyuku). Get off at Mitaka and take the Ghibli pullman. Or if you like to walk you can take a walk it's about 20 min..

There's also souvenire shop wit a lot of gadget and book shop! And if you are hungry there's also hot dog and little restaurant where you can eat inside..

After the visit museum if you have good weather, I recommend to walk through the Inogashira Park which is the museum already inside. And reach at Kichijoji station. (It's the station between Mitaka and Shinjyuku). You can find very beautiful fauna of Tokyo!
