dining-out in Asahikawa

Asahikawa is situated in the middle of Hokkaido.
The town is famous for Asahikawa Ra-men (soup noodle). This place is one of the most famous one, called "San Toh Ka". I've seen a branch at Clarke Quay in Singapore as well.
These are their speciality.
I fell in love with this white soup noodle. It was just sooooooooooooo good!!

Trip to Hokkaido - Haneda Airport

Hi there. We visited Hokkaido (Japan's North Island) for the weekends. Right after school, we headed to Haneda Airport. A lot of people prefer Haneda to Narita as it's much closer to Tokyo Central area. It doesn't take much time to go to Haneda if you live in Yokohama/Shonan area. But you don't wannta take trains during the heavy rush-hour, though.

This is my favorite bakery, Paul. Not only in Paris, they also have shops at Tokyo station, Shinagawa station and at Haneda airport!!

There're a lot of shop at Haneda, mostly gourmet shops. You don't need to shop around before departing from Tokyo. Simply go to Haneda to buy famouse Tokyo sweets!!

WIP: cross-stitch Day 8

Yesterday, we were hit by a big typhoon here in Japan. Kis stayed at home and I closed my zakka botique, too. In Shonan region, we had very strong wind in the morning, but not really badly. Sky got cleared out by noon. In other region, they had more serious damage. Oh, no....

My work is almost done as you can see. I'm getting kinda bored. Aha!
