Last Day in Tokyo.
I made several stops:
Daikanyama is a fancy Tokyo shopping destination. Its irresistible new attraction is a Tsutaya "bookstore". It is to other bookstores as Whole Foods might be to a snack vending machine --a modern cluster of several two-storey building with books, music, video and magazines mixed with food and a some well-designed products. Open from 7 am until 2 am, one could live there! The whole complex is beautifully landscaped with plenty of outdoor seating.
Plenty of trendy shopping in the surrounding neighborhood.
Of all the incredible Tokyo department stores Matsuya in Ginza stands out for its long comittment to good design. The 7th floor is not to be missed.
I had to visit one great antique dealer. Mr. Hasebe is the champion of fine old Mingei -- among other things. There are always several superb and appealing things.
This is the mother of all pot hooks!
Last supper at Honmura-an. Salad with fresh figs, peeled.
Dessert was an apricot mochi!
