Last few days in Tokyo

Sorry for the slowdown in updates recently…
As promised, we took Nao to the aquarium.
And spent the rest of the day hanging out in cafes and shooting around town.
Found a totally random place called 'Bess' that sold stuff like this…the place was huge…my mom and I were mesmerized by it.
Have enjoyed seeing the cool architecture here…
Went to a beautiful park…the cutest kids in the world were there.
And dogs too!
I only have two more days left in Tokyo now. I am so ready to come home. I miss my family, my friends, my dogs, my own room….I've been so out of sorts the last couple of days because I am homesick. 
Not that I don't love it here….:)
xo Jane

  5. Your photography is so beautiful…love all the shots! I really enjoyed all your Tokyo post – espeically as I am such a Japan buff >.< I think you captured the spirit of Tokyo perfectly and you really made me envy you for visiting all those cool and very unique places.
    I am absolutely in love with the first picture of you in your outfit (the one with the camera)..it's so perfect! You wear high waisted full skirts so well…always inspires me.

    Great pictures as usual! Love the ones taken in the park especially.. I like your style of photography.
    That outfit is definitely one of my favourites so far.. The skirt is gorgeous (I love that cream colour) and the jacket looks really unique. I would love to have your budget to spend on clothes. (: I can’t see the t-shirt clearly, but it looks pretty interesting.
    You definitely seem like a vintage clothes lover too, which is something I really admire in people. Vintage is so much more unique and special! If you’re ever in London, I would check out the store Beyond Retro. Some absolutely amazing vintage pieces there.
    I would appreciate it so much if you maybe took a little look at my blog. I started it up as I was so inspired by some other blogs I saw (*cough* yours..).
    Great post as usual
