Kabuki, Fabric, Museum

Coffee=priority number one. 

We found a cute little café on our way to Shinjuku station.  Coffee and toast-a perfect breakfast. 

After we finished our breakfast, we wandered around some of the skyscrapers in Shinjuku.  We had about thirty minutes before Karl and his dad would take off for a Kabuki performance and us ladies would go fabric shopping.

Inside the Sumitomo skyscraper.
If you like sewing, knitting, or any other type of crafts and are in Japan-you must go to Nippori fabric street.  Store after store, story after story, shelf after shelf…the piles of gorgeous fabrics are somewhat daunting.  We hardly knew where to begin.  Just looking at all the beautiful fabrics made we want to start quilting as a hobby right then and there. 

After making some exciting purchases, we made our way to Ueno to meet the boys.  From there, we went to see the Tokyo National Museum-which never disappoints.  (Karl and I have been there multiple times.)

We wrapped the evening up at a lovely Korean Barbeque restaurant. 

Good food, good company, good times.  And we still had a week to go!

Next stop…Kyoto. 
Pin It!
