My photo diary of Tokyo continues!
First stop on my craft beer tour is Brasserie St. Bernardus in Kanda.
The ingredients for ramen:
Morning, on my way to work. This is Shibuya Crossing. Very quiet before 8 AM on a Tuesday.
Tuesday night, time for craft beer. Headed to Goodbeer Faucets, which is conveniently walking distance from my office. They also have happy hour from 17:00 – 20:00 with ¥200 off all pints, which is a sweet deal, especially considering that happy hour really isn’t a thing in Japan!
Look, a gaijin!
Walking home. I love small side streets.
A block from my house. Turn left where the fancy cube streetlights go dark.
This is how I’m able to travel with Rilakkuma. He has a special hardness so he can be strapped to the outside of a backpack or suitcase and ride along without taking up space inside.
Was at home most of the day, resting. Went out at night though. Shibuya glow, again, always.
My friend, Andreas, who I know from Japanese at UCLA! He’s been living in Japan for three years. At long last, we are reunited! We’re so happy and we haven’t even reached the bar yet.
Tonight’s craft beer adventure is Popeye.
Popped into a コンビニ on the way home from the bar, found whisky. Those cups on the right are individually packaged shots!
Chuo line. First picture faces west, away from the center of Tokyo, second picture faces east.
This street runs along the Chuo line tracks.
I bought a train pass! Cute penguin.
Had lunch at this place called Stand S.
The fellow in shorts is cooking me a sausage.
When I left it was raining and I didn’t have an umbrella, and he gave me one.
Done with work, time to go out! This time to Ushitora in Shimotakazawa, where I will meet a new friend via OkCupid, and have more craft beer!
Japanese real ale!
Oh yes this omu-rice is so good.
After Ushitora my friend and I return to Shibuya to meet some people at a British pub named The Aldgate. That’s not pictured here, however.
Time to catch the last train with everyone else:
Shinjuku station is busy.
Shibuya is getting a bit busier in the morning now that it’s close to the weekend. Also, I understand that salaried employees get paid around the 25th, so it’s about time to go out and spend that money!
