April in snapshots and in no particular order
Ben & Jerry’s free “corn” day. Lunches with my mom. Ivy Place in Daikanyama. Ice cream (Japan’s specials: Peach Party, Couch Potato, Pumpkin, Yuzu-Citrus). Hidden and discovered places. Spring drinks at Tully’s. Batman and Robin’s samurai swords at Sakura-tei in Harajuku. Squid-ink black bread salmon and cream cheese lunch sandwich. Flower shops aplenty. Morning toast: Sarabeth’s apple jam! Prada building in Aoyama. Tea time – herbal refresh – at Aoyama Tea House. A pretty sunset from Roppongi Hills. The flowering tree outside my front porch. Steak-don! at Ivy Place. Blooming spring and creepy cute pig creature. Ricotta, tomato, garlic flatbread pizza goodness. Sakura chiffon cheesecake. Starbucks and a custard filled fruit waffle, looking out over Shibuya from the Tokyu Excel. My favorite showstopper piece. Vine covered houses and cars in mini alleys. Hello, pink mascot! Zunda shake = mashed soybeans and matcha tea. Yum! Flowers, flowers, flowers. Hello, spring!
