Touring Takshimaya

Takashimaya is always fun to visit. I especially enjoy the basement where fold is prepared and sold. Japanese fried chicken is a delightful treat. I made this recipe at home and it's as good as you can purchase in Takashimaya.

Popular store "Poplar" gone, 7-11 takes its place

Popular convenience store "Poplar" is now gone. A new 7-11 is next door to where Poplar was located. Convenience stores in Japan are fantastic places. Always popular at lunch time for workers and in the evenings for students who value quality food at reasonable prices.



Copy and ATM machines are really nice to have when you need them.
