« first stop in tokyo-ADVENTURES IN KIDDYLAND | Main | From the weekend »

June 19, 2009


I was happy to spend my first day in Tokyo hanging out on Omotesando snapping some pictures of the stylish passer-bys.

While waiting for the then empty streets to fill up, mom and I had breakfast at Andersen's, a Danish restaurunt my mom has been frequenting since she moved here in 1982.

It was delicious.


It wasn't long before Omotesando became a sea of people....


A shady nook next to a convenience store is apparently a watering hole for Omotesando's steeziest...they were all just parked here, silently begging to have their photographs taken! 







It was funny, as my mom and I were snapping along Omotesando, there must have been at least 5 people who came by hauling big piles of twigs. I wonder what they were for!

It wasn't long before my mom and I were exhausted...stopped to give our feet a rest.

(My Martin Marigela cowboy boots)

(Mom's Ann Demeulemeester sandals)

I guess it was the long flight...or maybe we really are just huge wimps...but we headed back to hotel very early to get some sleep.
We're all rested up today and ready to hit the streets again....expect more posts like this soon.

I am so jealous. I want to go back to Tokyo! You have to go to The New York Bar and Grill in the Park Hyatt for dinner one night. It's amazing, best meal I've ever had. It's the hotel that's featured in Lost In Translation.
