Re-connected with my friend, Midori. It had been about 6 years since the last time we got together.

Our schedules just never clicked.

We met up in Shukugawa. Again, the cherry blossoms were in bloom but it was another gloomy drizzly day.

Lunch was at a cafe called Bin.

In Japanese, bin means glass jar and this cafe happens to make their own jams and jellies.

Their lunch is made with organic veggies...850 yen.

Everything was delicious.

After lunch we had some coffee 270 yen...a Sulawesi Mamasa, rich, smooth and dark roasted.

Another great day of catching up, lots of chatting and laughter.
