Visit to the Gajoen

Meguro Gajoen is a wonderful hotel with exquisite design, a museum inside, and a waterfall included. This summer, it's sparkling with festival lanterns and dragon lights.  

Summer touch

50 shades of sakura

By day, the yearly Japanese cherry blossom phenomenon makes Tokyo look pure as snow. The white flowers are the city's wedding dress. But at dawn, you can enjoy the pink, orange, blue and gold shades of the mighty sakura. Ready for the most voluptuous moment of the year ?

Cherry up! (part 2)

Do you want some more? Fine.

Ohanami must go on! The most convenient sakura spot for me is defitely Megurogawa, the thin canal running from Gotanda to Ebisu. It's only five minutes from my office, so I can escape during the lunch break and cry with hapiness in front of these sweet cherry blossoms.

A perfume of Venezia in Tokyo

Welcome to Jiyugaoka, a trendy location in the Western part of Tokyo, just a few stops away from Sibuya. Beside the many cake shops and tea salons, a real little Venezia is there to give the final romantic touch to the town. With an authentic gondola that cannot go anywhere, because the bridge is too low. Anyway.

Jiyugaoka, the sweet city...

So many sweet places to discover in and around Tokyo! I can't wait...

No country for Eternal Sunshine

They say Japan is the country where short-lived, transient things are venerated : samurai (quickly killed), sushi (quickly eaten), and sakura (quickly blossomed and fallen). Things don't last in this country. Happiness and human relations are fleeting. This was the hard lesson I learnt this year. It is difficult to accept for a heiress of ancient Greek Cosmos and Christianism, that promoted eternal, indestructible things. Eternal sunshine of love. Indestructible power of individual will. These are sweet dreams in heart-breaking Japan.

Enjoy the sakura while you can. They won't fight to stay on the branch.

Everybody's got to learn sometimes

Daily Scenary - Lunch on the Roof

Sometimes it's nice to bring my obento on the roof and eat lunch under the sun. My work place is situated in a very quiet area between Meguro and Gotanda ; it's green, peaceful, the perfect place to breathe and relax. Could stay there until the night...

The black-eyed river

Meguro River... I cross it twice everyday. In this season, it looks a bit like my old Kanda River.
