The sun is shining and we were walking in Inokashira park in the morning. This park can be pretty crowded, and we can imagine why. There are many little school children who explore the park and play games. And then we found a very cute and creative looking wooden coffee place (no pictures allowed) in the middle of the park. Of course we took the chance and ordered two Americanos and drank it on a bench with a view on colourful trees and water. A good way to start the day!
The area around the park is quite crowded and full with nice boutiques. We loved it!
When we left the metro station Asagaya, we bumped into a jazz concert on a square in front of the station. It was really cool jazz! We watched for 30 minutes and then walked further for some coffee.
We went to coffee bar: Fresco. It’s a small place in an alley with a no-nonsense look and feel. We both had latte and shared a pumpkin cheesecake. The coffee is good, although the place itself lacks some atmosphere. We rate this coffee bar with a 7.5 out 10.
From there we walked to the Ko-enji area for a coffee experience at Coffee Amp, a small place with a tiny terrace. They also sell coffee equipment and fresh coffee beans. They are very friendly and made good coffee. I also bought some coffee beans. My suitcase smells of coffee now. The place is situated in a local neighbourhood. We had a good time and rate Coffee Amp with an 8 out of 10.
Vegetarian restaurant Meu Nota
For dinner, we walked further into the lively area of Ko-enji. It’s packed with shops and places to eat and drink. It all looks great! We chose vegetarian restaurant Meu Nota, a tiny restaurant upstairs on a first floor. We ordered dishes like ‘three different potatoes’, a curry and a tortilla salad. The place is good, but not very busy, which is a pity. We rate this place with an 8 out of 10.
Red bull academy (No Request) party at Womb
It’s Friday, and we were in for some dancing on good Drum & Bass music. The party we went to was at Womb, a famous techno club in Tokyo. It looks very industrial inside. The first two hours, a set from Mark Pritchard, was quite horrible. A waste of time. Luckily, we stayed awake and we went wild on the great D&B set from Randall. It was an awesome night out in Tokyo!
