This was ourÂ first full day in Tokyo:
When at first you think about how cute your husband is creating a bed fort to shield himself from the light but then he refuses to wake for the next two hours for the rest of the trip…
Brunch was held at World Breakfast All Day, which focused on Israel for the months of March and April. It’s a small space and about twelve people sit at a table. Very cosy:
Loved the little gold hands on the door.
Menu! They also had non-Israeli foods if one wasn’t into hummus and stuff.
Interesting titbits on Israel.
The both of us didn’t get the Israel option, but hey I found Mate! With a plastic bombilla! Cool cool cool.
As usual, some interesting buildings IÂ came across:
‘49%Â son of the bitch’. 😂
Daytime was warmer than expected, and my velvet bomber jacket proved exceptionally warm, so during the day I walked around in my lighter Jucy Judy jacket:
Our next stop was to Tokyo Snake CenterÂ (a.k.a. Cafe & Snake) a place that I’d been looking forward to visiting. Entry came with a drink and was a reasonable Â¥1000. Ottie loved his hot chocolate by the way:
Owner and alllll the snakes!
We got to share our table with a snake attendant. I chose a sleepy little Corn Snake in a cute house:
For an extra Â¥540, I got to pet two snakes of my choosing:
Hiss (ã‚·ãƒ¼), a female Southern Pine Snake. She was so eager to get back into her controlled-temperature case that I had a hard time trying to keep her to my body. Felt so bad about disturbing these snakes after that.
At least Jagger, the male Jungle Carpet Python, seemed happy to be exploring. :P
Close-up of Jagger! He weighed a comfortable 2kgÂ and caused Ottie to exclaim about how he better notÂ end up with a strangulated wife.
We arrived in Tokyo in the middle of Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo, so unfortunately we missed the runways that we were invited to. Bummer. But hey, our first fashion week event was pretty awesome. First, a very quick Harajuku sightseeing for Ottie and some sugary sweetness:
And then we went to the guided tour ofÂ PREFACE: Image Politics in Fashion and Arts, which showcasedÂ brands and artworks from contemporary Vienna artists:
Gon‘s political images printed onto clothing. Ottie and I had some comments about this series though.
Dorit Margreiter‘s video installation exploring the stereotypes of race and identity.
Mario Kiesenhofer‘s Indoor series explored gay sexuality and itsÂ codified signals.
Selina Rottman’s unisex, androgynous pieces.
SAGAN Vienna‘s traditional-infused bags. Here’s the curator using a chair to explain the concept.
Veronika Eberhart‘s video installation, Hit Like a Girl.
SIGHTLINEÂ explored the deliberate details in casual and everyday pieces.
Wefie with curatorÂ Andreas Spiegl. We talked so much and I got some book reccs!
We finally broke off from the after party and filled our stomachs with chain tempuraÂ Tendon Tenya:
All Star Tendon.
Couldn’t not take a picture of the Biebs and Super Student. Ottie was not impressed.
We took some outfit photos inside Shibuya Mark CityÂ because I liked the wallpaper and automatic door vestibule.
