Local Walk By The River (Play Ground and Sky Tree View) in East Tokyo

My photo explains all.  This is my neighbourhood now but I like this place, the park is actually one of the public parks run by TOKYO.  Kids love this playground and adults can enjoy a lot of course.


We had a chance to visit Hawaii this summer and we went to playgrounds and beaches…only! (no shopping what so ever.) Because my son insisted to visit local playgrounds to make local friends!  If anyone seeking any information for parks in TOKYO, you can check it here, Tokyo Metropolitan Park Association OR, Let’s go to the park (Japanese only at this moment).



Anyway, this park, you can see the HP here. SHIOIRI PARK (OLD EAST TOKYO AREA)

Tsukasa Coffee Shop, Old fashioned cafe in Akihabara

Today, you find all the coffee places in Akihabara starts with STARBUCKS, TULLY’s Coffee, DOUTOUR and then cafe VELOCE.  You know, I am talking about coffe chains.  Before all those emerge in Tokyo, there have been many local cafe that serve excellent coffee and food with reasonable price.

In Akihabara, it is now hard to find those local cafe, but this TSUKASA coffee shop is the one I should recommend.  Most of the customers are local salary men and women and owner’s friends (I had a chance to see one lady customers brought some souvenirs to an owner and I really thought she was one of regular customers for years!).

TSUKASA’s coffee is wonderful and, they serves nice food.  This day, I had curry rice which is also old-fashioned but really it is better than COCO-ICHI (curry rice chains in Japan and may be world-wide).

If you want to experience Akihabara’s old fashioned coffee place, go to TSUKASA!
