Have a cool beer at a beer terrace of a historic Japanese style building! ~ Meiji Kinenkan

Beer Terrace

There is no one in Tokyo who doesn’t know the Meiji Kinenkan (Meiji Memorial Hall). Today, it is known for being a venue for parties and weddings, but this building has a long history. The Meiji Kinenkan is over 100 years old and one of its highlights is the beer terrace. Surrounded by trees and the historic site, it’s a relaxing oasis in the middle of Tokyo!

Japanese souvenirs and sakura-pink denim? Our shopping spree at “Tottori Okayama Shimbashikan”!

Shopping!

Oops, I did it again… After my trip to the Nara antenna shop exclusively featuring products from the Nara prefecture in the Shirokane area a little while ago, I planned my next trip. This time, I visited the antenna shop of Okayama and Tottori prefecture in Shinbashi. I wondered which famous products I would find from this area located in the western part of Honshu (Japan’s biggest island), One surprising answer is “denim”!
