Tokyo: World Breakfast All Day, Tokyo Snake Center, Preface: Image in Politics

This was our first full day in Tokyo:

Sleepyhead Ottie 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:

As usual, some interesting buildings I came across:

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 Center (a.k.a. Cafe & Snake) a place that I’d been looking forward to visiting. Entry came with a drink and was a reasonable ¥1000. Ottie loved his hot chocolate by the way:

For an extra ¥540, I got to pet two snakes of my choosing:

Male Jungle Carpet Python Snake at the Tokyo Snake Center in Tokyo.At least Jagger, the male Jungle Carpet Python, seemed happy to be exploring. :P

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 of PREFACE: Image Politics in Fashion and Arts, which showcased brands and artworks from contemporary Vienna artists:

We finally broke off from the after party and filled our stomachs with chain tempura Tendon Tenya:
