Peter Rabbit Exhibition 

Hello dear readers! Here in Japan many schools and companies have been on summer holidays. During the holidays I went to an exhibition celebrating 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter. Laurens Seiji came too!

He’s a big baby and getting a little heavy for me!

He’s been sticking his tongue out a lot lately 😛

I got him a little set of board books at the gift shop and a print of some elegantly attired rabbits to hang in the living room.

The exhibition is on until the 3rd of September at Tokyo Fuji Art Museum.
Thanks for reading and see you next time!


Cheburashka Cafe

Hello dear readers! Have you heard of Cheburashka, the monkey-like character from Russia? I didn’t know of him until I came to Japan, but perhaps he’s popular in your country?

I visited the Cheburashka Cafe in Kichijoji with friends as part of an early birthday celebration.   

I ordered curry and salad which came with a little Cheburashka biscuit. It was pretty good!

Here’s a full shot of the outfit I wore that day:

Thanks to my friends for a lovely day, and thank you for reading!



Birthday in Hakone 箱根で誕生日

Hello dear readers! It’s been a long time since I last posted and a lot has happened. Today I thought I’d share how I spent my first birthday as a Mummy!


We all spent one night away at Hakone, right by Lake Ashi. I had a nice time relaxing in the hot spring baths and went to an Italian restaurant with a lake view for dinner.

The next day we did a little bit of sightseeing at the Hakone Detached Palace Garden. It’s not the catchiest name but it’s a lovely place!

Can you spot anyone on the balcony?

Thanks for reading and see you next time!
