Kappabashi is located in Taito ward Tokyo and it’s located between Ueno and Asakusa. Kappabashi is famous for its streets which is called Dougu street with lots of kitchen ware stores.
Japanese famous food samples …
And very famous Japanese kitchen knives …and more
I had a taiyaki（たい焼き）Japanese traditional snack♡
Outside is fish-shaped cake and inside is filled with sweet red bean paste.
Walking on the street in the rain, I saw this cat looking down from the balcony.

Yesterday, at Shiba park(芝公園) in Tokyo.
The view of cherry blossom and Tokyo tower⇓
I introduced Ueno Zoo in my last post. Near this zoo, there is a very interesting market street called Ameyoko アメ横.
I took a walk on this street before visiting the Ueno Zoo.
Celebrating the birth of the famous baby giant panda Xiang Xiang (born in June 2017 , some of the street shops offer panda designed food⇓
I visited Ueno Zoo (上野動物園), the oldest zoo in Japan yesterday.
Why Ueno zoo? Too see the giant panda cub. However, I failed to take a numbered ticket to be given by the zoo. So, I didn’t see the baby panda Xiang Xiang and her mom Shin Shin. But I managed to see Xiang Xiang’s daddy Ri Ri and took his picture⇓♡
Not only animals, but Ueno Zoo has five storied pagoda in the zoo which was built back in 1631!! Cool♥
Just outside the zoo looked like this⇓…so many people try to see the cherry blossom around Ueno park. wow
I visited “Edo Tokyo Tatemonoen” 江戸東京たてもの園 in Koganei-City, Tokyo.
Here they have reconstruction of the old town scape and it is interesting to peek the life of old-time (mainly about 70 years ago).
They have reconstructed a soy source shop, a public bath house, a bar, a cosmetic manufacture, and a lot more…
Here, I took some pictures and sharing them with you💛
An Umbrella shop?↓
A Soy sauce shop↓
And a public bathhouse↓
It snowed the day before yesterday in Tokyo (3/21), but Spring is here.
Making people want to go out and feel the warm and fresh air.
Today(3/23) I was under this weeping willow(shidare yanagi)しだれやなぎ, besides the old Japanese wooden house.
I often introduce sake (Japanese rice wine) in a bottle in my posts, but this time I’m introducing sake in chocolate that I found at a convenience store.
I was so excited to open this box…”大吟醸” Daiginjo means the very special sake with fruity aroma.
As soon as I opened the box, I could smell the sake! and the taste was real sake too!! It is quite amazing they put real good quality sake in a chocolate and it tastes so elegant and good!
