Rilakkuma X Tower Records Cafe (Kiiroitori Diary)

During my recent long summer vacation in Tokyo, I visited the Rilakkuma (Kiiroitori Diary) themed cafe hosted by Tower Records Cafe at Omotesando. This pop-up cafe was a little unique as it revolved around Rilakkuma’s friend – Kiiroitori (the yellow chick)!

Tree-house Cafe Les Grands Arbres, Tokyo – Floral Theme Cafe 3

Being a true-blue Singaporean, tree-house restaurants/cafes are uncommon and typically remain as an image/a scene from hollywood movies. I can’t imagine myself staying in a tree-house though as I’m scared of crawlies but would love the fun and cheap thrill of being able to climb up to it and wave from the top. I first …
