Are you the type that’s uncomfortable dining out along? If so the Moomin House Cafe in Tokyo can help.
The cafe seats lone customers with stuffed animals called Moomins so they won’t have to sit and dine alone. (Stuffed animals are also brought to groups so they can get a turn sitting with them.) I don’t know, if you ask me, I’d guess that dining with a stuffed animal is much more awkward than dining alone!
Back in July I wrote about visiting Senso-ji Temple during Day 1 of our trip to Japan. Senso-ji is Tokyo’s oldest temple and was very busy with tourists. While we enjoyed seeing the temples, we found the people watching to be at its finest!
While walking in and around the temple grounds we came across a couple of odd signs. Since Kim and I do not speak or read Japanese we couldn’t figure out the exact meaning but we had some ideas.
- Kappabashi- “Kitchen Town”
- Senso-ji Temple
- Daikokuya restaurant for tempura
- Impressive views from the Sky Tree
- Doughnut Plant, a favorite of ours back home
