Hair modeling in Tokyo: Charman Hair Salon

8:33:00 PM

A little while ago I had the chance to do some modeling for the hair salon Charman in Daikanyama.! I just got the pictures from the shoot from my hair stylist Aco-san this week, and here are a couple of them:

Tokyo Cafes: Meiji 100% Chocolate Cafe

3:37:00 PM
Tokyo has a wide range of exotic cafes for people who like to have their regular cup of coffee in a slightly different environment. For people who prefer to drink chocolate, or just want to enjoy a chocolate dessert along with their coffee, it might be a good alternative to visit Meiji's 100%Chocolate Cafe located in Kyobashi.
Meiji is Japan's largest chocolate manufacturer, and the company opened their first Chocolate Cafe in Kyobashi in 2004 in the same building as their headquarters. The chocolate cafe was designed by the Tokyo-based Wonderwall, a firm that also has designed Uniqlo's huge store in Ginza. A characteristic of the Chocolate Cafe is the wooden ceiling that looks like a gigantic chocolate bar.
Good company
The cafe has all types of chocolate desserts and drinks, and I have added a couple of pictures of the things we ordered below. The place is not surprisingly quite popular so you might have to wait in line in order to get a seat. We ended up by a small counter by the window, as all the tables were taken.

You can also buy chocolate to bring with you home, or give to a friend as a gift: By the counter, they sell 56 different varieties of chocolate squares in small colorful packages. In addition to plain chocolates made by Meiji's original receipt from1926 and chocolate made by cocoa beans from a wide range of countries, there is also a range of unique chocolates for the more adventurous tasters out there. Some examples of the exotic varieties you can buy are chocolate with azuki (red bean), basil, yomogi (Japanese mugwort), goma (sesame seeds), ginger, red chili, jasmine, cheese, and maccha (Japanese green tea) flavor.
Chocolate Cafe

Meiji's Chocolate Cafe is located only 5 minutes away from Tokyo Station by foot. The cafe stays open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. during weekdays, and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m on weekends.

〒104-0031 東京都中央区京橋2丁目4−16
Kyobashi 2-4-16, Meiji Seika Honsha Bldg 1F.

Sightseeing in Saitama: The Kawagoe Festival (川越祭り)

1:34:00 PM

Kawagoe city in Saitama prefecture is a good alternative if you're looking for an historical place to visit for a day trip from Tokyo.
The city is known under the nickname "Little Edo" (小江戸 Koedo) and has even been referred to by CNN as the 'most Japanese' destination of all. The reason for the nickname is the influence that came through the financial and cultural ties the city held to the Japanese capital Edo (the former name for Tokyo) back in the 17th to 19th centuries and the architecture left from this period.
