Le Pain Quotidien

I took Mom to Le Pain Quotidien, Tokyo Midtown Roppongi.

I always enjoy breakfast there.

I’m glad that Le Pain Quotidien opened in Roppongi recently on 1 June 2017.

I love their Belgium style healthy breakfast and brunch.

I shared omelette and French toast with Mom.

Delicious!

Meeting After Meeting

I am assisting an instant noodle manufacturer to penetrate Japanese market.

Their products are all natural so food tasting session with potential buyers are fun.

To my surprise, each buyers have different feedback towards the products.

We can all learn from their feedback to improve the product.

At night, I had dinner @ Italian Restaurant Papa Milano, Nihonbashi, Tokyo with my golf friend.

Yes, I agree we need to plan golf!

Cheers!

Movie Sunday

I had ramen for my brunch: AFURI at Roppongi Hills.

Then went to movie theater; in Japan, the movie is called The Pentagon Papers (officially, The Post).

It’s not an action movie; but it’s trilling.

Ironically, Japanese Defense Ministry is answerable to the similar issue: the daily battle report was reported, but Ministry/Minister didn’t know about the document, it existed but treated as missing, etc.

This could happen to any countries, especially when the state’s pride is involved.

On the other hands, we cannot forget that people’s life is in stake as well.

And I had sushi at Sushizanmai, Roppongi Haiyu-za Mae Branch, Roppongi.

Aoyama, Yurakucho, Ginza and Roppongi, Tokyo

Mom stayed over night so I cooked brunch for two.

First, we went to fabric specialized store: Christian Fischbacher at Aoyama, Tokyo.

This company imports curtains from Switzerland and Italy.

There are few curtains that we are interested.

We troubled them to hung curtains to see how it looks on windows.

They are nice and kind that they didn’t mind to do so.

Then we decide to go to an interior shop, Nitori at Yurakucho, Tokyo.

On the way to Aoyama 1-Chome Station, we passed by Honda Headquarters’ Showroom.

It seems Honda launched a new motorcycle today.

Japanese fiscal year starts in April and ends in March.

1st April is the first day of Japanese fiscal year.

It is a suitable day for implementing something NEW for Japanese company today.

We reached Nitori which is located at 5th and 6th Floor of Marronnier Gate Ginza 2, Yurakucho, Tokyo.

Nitori is originated from furniture production town Asahikawa, Hokkaido.

Today, the company aggressively imports economical furniture and operates 471 retail stores.

To my surprise, there are Nitori shops in Taiwan (27 stores), the USA (5 stores) and China (11 stores).

Furniture is economical and stylish.

I can even learn how to hung my curtains from their sales floor.

Today, we both enjoyed furniture hunting.

We went for good meaty dinner at Dedesuke, Ginza.

We enjoyed various parts of beef.

On the way back, we stopped by Japanese bakery shop, Kimuraya at Ginza.

Kimuraya is famous for Anpan (red bean bans).

Today, I bought Sakura-Koshian-Pan (Sakura Red Bean Bans), Sakura-Cream-Pan (Sakura and custard cream bans) and Ichijiku-Pan (fig bans).

I plan to bring them for my lunch tomorrow.

Then I get Sakura Cinnabon at Cinnabon, Roppongi for breakfast.

I cannot wait to try them all tomorrow!!! fufufu
