It’s 2:30 here in Tokyo, and I’m wide awake. I put off looking at any device for over an hour…. tried putting the tv on sleep (worked the first time!), but no luck.
Yesterday (after sleeping in until 9:30), we cycled to one of our favourite coffee shops in Tokyo – Glitch. Had a cappuccino and a cake each. It was delightful. Kym still had his frequent coffee card from last visit – we should be able to get a free one before we return home.
Over coffee we decided to go to the National Museum of Modern Art. It was in the local area, and we’ve always had it on our list but never been. After finding a convenient bike park…
…we went in. The current exhibition was on the Japanese house – architecture and life after 1945 and covered to the current time. It was a look at the different styles of houses and how & why they were built in Japan – a really fascinating exhibition, including short videos, drawings, models.
After looking around the rest of the exhibition we enjoyed lunch from a food truck (with beer) which was quite cheap – $15. The ticket was joint with their craft gallery. It was their 40th anniversary, and as part of the exhibition there were stamps to collect as you went round… and you got a free gift at the end – which is useful – A5 paper holder.
Well… I should try to sleep- hopefully this worked!
