Recently, a huge Tsutaya opened up at the new Lucua 1100.
Tsutaya is mostly known for its video rental shops but has recently emerged with bookstore/cafes.
This particular Tsutaya is a bookstore/cafe. The interior is rather dark but there are tons of seats for you to grab a coffee and browse their books.
I particularly like that they open at 7:00, perfect for when I go to Umeda when Satoshi has his German class. We usually get there before 9:30 and the amount of places serving breakfast at this time is quite limited.
In Tsutaya there is a Starbucks and a cafe called Le Garage.
I tried Le Garage's blueberry bread pudding and an iced coffee...650 yen (tax included).
The bread pudding was dense and not too sweet and there were lots of blueberries in it.
The iced coffee was good.
I hope to hang out here more often.
Krazy salaryman (businessman) left his bag at the table next to mine and went MIA for over 30 minutes...he should've paid me to watch his bag!
People in Japan way too trusting...
Sunday we went to check out the roses at Aramaki Rose Park. We've been coming here since 2006.
We love getting to the park right when it opens so we can eat our breakfast in peace and quiet.
This place is getting quite popular, there were tons of people when we arrived on Sunday!
Our breakfast was spam egg onigirazu, cherries, pickles, cherry tomato & island lava cookies. I also made hot coffee for Satoshi and a coldbrew for me.
Am loving the fish eye lens.
How was your weekend?
