Our New Favorite Places

As you might know, my darling and I (actually I...) love to have a steady routine because I don't get bored of doing the same things :P Of course, I add some new things but not necessarily frequent. LoL

What we found near our new home is a jog spot! It's a 10 minutes run to get there. My dream to run along the river on the weekends came true :D

Near the station, we found many bento shops. One day, we tried okowa (sticky rice with vegetables or beans) bento, which you can select 3 different okowa from many!

Also, we found a sushi restaurant called Magurobito near station! Yay!!! As there are always long lines of people in front of the restaurant, their sushi was pretty good!!! We've already been there twice ;)

What we couldn't find is a cafe (my recipe thinking workplace LoL)... maybe I should better use our new dining table at home instead, which will hopefully arrive in April. Anyways, most cafes and restaurants are freezing cold due to the power saving (since the earthquake), so better to stay at home at the present day :(

Do you have any favorite place?
How often do you go there?

We are still having down-jacket weather in Tokyo...
I hope spring comes soon!!!

Please click below and vote for me.


  1. You are so lucky to be so close to the river. Is that the Arakawa River?

  2. awwww, i'm glad you guys are enjoying your new place and it's surroundings! I also live by the water so in the summer, running along the water is really nice and refreshing :) My fiance and i have many favourite restaurants (it's one of our favourite pastimes, trying out new places) - we usually rotate through our list of favorites so we visit them at least once a month! :)

  3. These are great places to have around your home! wow jogging by a river sound so nice!!! It must be great in the morning to have some fresh air =)

    Bento! I wanted to try some when I was in Japan but didn't get the chance! You have some great places by your home, I hope you find a cute cafe soon so you can get your creative juices flowing again! I love cafes that just let you sit there for hours and not get mad LOL there are not a lot of those here in Vancouver!

    You're super cute in your purple cardigan with pompoms! haha the places that bf and I usually go to are all posted on my blog but when we try to save money we usually just go to his house or my house and do something simple like rent a movie, play video games or sometimes, we just do our own things and enjoy each others company in silence (like when he plays video games and I go on the laptop haha)

  4. Hi Tornadoes28,

    It is Tamagawa river. Do you know there?!

  5. Hi Kym,

    Yes! We finally moved in! I love to jog because I can brainstorm my ideas ;) By the water is way better than at the gym (but I still go to the gym because I hate to get a sunburn).

    Wow! At least once a month is a lot!!! But we do that speaking of dishes! We eat Tonkatsu at least once a month. haha

  6. Hi Suki,

    Yes! Great in the morning, so we always run on the weekends when we don't have work. Otherwise we can get drowsy at work. haha

    I know it is hard to try out bento while your stay in Japan. There are too many cafes and restaurants, and too many foods you want to try, right?!

    Yes... some cafes don't allow us to stay long... so mostly, we go to starbucks-kind!

    Thanks for liking my cardigan. I wear this too much when I'm lazy, so I have to change at some point. LoL

    We do the same. We do different things in one place. In that way we feel we are spending time together. haha

  7. Oh, Tamagawa. I have passed over it on the way to Yokohama and Kamakura. But I have not stopped at the river.

  8. Hi Tornadoes28,

    It's a huge river. I'm on the Tokyo side, which I believe is far from Yokohama side. But anyway, you know well ;)
