The First Day in Tokyo

started with room service:

Tokyo Day1

After breakast we wandered to a bus stop and bought drinks (there are vending machines and potted plants everywhere):

Tokyo Day1-2

…and bicycles

Tokyo Day 1-3

I found it interesting that in a place that displays so much concern for safety, adults are allowed to ride bicycles on very narrow paths along with the pedestrians and plant pots.

Now if you see a huge, mouse with horns knitting over a store entrance, you should go in and buy yarn (I think its meant to be a sheep, but it looks like a mouse to me). This is the sign for Yuzawaya – although the one we cleaned out visited was actually across the street from the sign:

 Tokyo Day 1-4

Here’s what I scored:

Tokyo Day 1-5 Tokyo Day 1-6 Tokyo Day 1-7 Tokyo Day 1-8

I’m not sure what the last yarn is, but I think the symbol for the fibre is flax – I’d love to know if anyone recognizes it. The stuff feels wonderful.
