My new home

Hello readers!
How are you? Today I’ve been exploring my neighbourhood. 
First of all, would you like to see the view from my apartment that I mentioned yesterday? 
(with scientific annotations)

I’ll have to visit Sky Tree sometime, and there’s a new bulding in Shibuya called Hikarie that’s also on my to-do list.
My apartment block is right next to a very beautiful temple, I can see part of it from my window:
I had a healthy breakfast yesterday, sakuranbo and yasai juice!
It’s the first time I’ve tried this type of cherries. I love the dark red kind, but these are also lovely, with a more gentle taste. I love this juice, it’s full of all sorts of vegetables, very good for you and delicious too! I don’t know if any of my readers are AKB48 fans (I’m not really) but some years ago they were promoting this juice and even made this PV in which they dance around dressed as vegetables:
As I was mentioned earlier, I was out visiting my local shops today. I’m staying in Koenji- it’s such a cute neighbourhood! I was delighted to find lots of second-hand shops and charming cafes. I had to go into this cafe when I saw the sign:
It’s Owl from Owl at Home! Owl at Home is one of the first books I can remember reading with my mother. It seems that this cafe is in a very old building (or else it’s very cleverly decorated) and there are all sorts of cute touches like an embroidered menu board, old fashioned china and lots of owls!
It’s only a casual oufit (it’s hot!) but I’ll give you the rundown:
Onepiece, bag: Vintage
Parasol: Innocent World
Hair ribbon: Anna House

Ah, and I couldn’t resist a little clothes shopping:
It’s a vintage cardigan jacket with bracelet sleeves. It’s the perfect length to wear with lolita and I’ve been searching for a cream jacket for ages. Yes, I’m very good at justifying my purchases! I can tell it’s going to be dangerous living in such close proximity to all these lovely shops….
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! There are lots more exciting things coming up. I’m going to Versailles presents Tokyo Metropolis tomorrow; a special three-man live with D, Moi dix Mois and of course Versailles! It will be the first time I’ll see Mana-sama!

As well as that I’m going to a lolita meet up and a Tanabata festival. 
The next post will be about the live! See you then,
with love from Sapphira

  1. Your neighbourhood is very lovely! It's always good to have some green space nearby so you can relax there when the city gets too busy. Enjoy the three-man event, it's surely interesting to see Versailles, D and Moi Dix Mois in one live 🙂

  2. The neighbourhood looks lovely ^^ The owl sign is adorable ♥ Can't believe your dress is vintage, it looks great! And I hope you will have alot of fun at the event, the lolita meet-up and festival 😀

  3. You have moved into a beautiful neighborhood, with lovely sights and accessible shops nearby. It will take some time to adjust to the new place, but you will be able to do that eventually. With a nice place like yours, it won’t be much of a problem getting used to it. ;)- Randy Robinson

  4. Wow, congratulations on moving to Tokyo, really! You're so so lucky! Might I ask why you moved? Unless you have already said elsewhere in a post, then I'm just being ignorant. ^^; I ask because it's a lot of peoples' dreams to move to Japan but few realise how hard it it; you have to be moving to a job or studying, etc., they don't let just anyone in, similar to Australia! ^^I hope you have an absolutely wonderful life, bring us back some of that gorgeous brand! XD

  5. Thank you very much! I am here most importantly to improve my Japanese skill, but I went to Japan on a working holiday visa. It's not so difficult to get the visa if your country has this arrangement with Japan, however there's a lot of paperwork and of course you need to be able to support yourself while you're there. Thanks for your comment!

  6. I hope you'll enjoy your time in Tokyo! I remember my first trip, I have to say I was not disappointed by a single thing 🙂 I hope it will be the same for you! Tea sounds wonderful, although I'll be starting my studies from next week so I might not have so much time. You can send me a PM on lj (xsapphiradollx) or my fb page (Elegant Poupée). See you soon perhaps? 🙂

  7. Thank you! I'm really looking forward to the festival, it will be a truly Japanese experience 🙂 I was practicing wearing yukata today! I still need to practice a bit more before the festival, it's tricky.

  8. Yes, I lived close to the countryside in England so I would miss the green if it wasn't there. It was pretty unique to see them all together! They made a good trio, I think.
