Day 177/365

Here I am out the front of Japan Government Offices in Shinjuku. As you well know, I've always liked a bit of grandeur and these austere, but massive buildings seemed well suited for my colourful, colourful look. It was supposed to rain today, so I have been happily lugging this donated *gorgeous* Ken Done umbrella around all day. No rain in sight actually, but that didn't stop me entertaining people as I wandered about looking for a drop... here... there... somewhere... nowhere.
Lunch today was in an amazing basement restaurant called Nakajima in downtown Shinjuku. They specialise in sardines. Of course, I went raw. Very happy making.
And then on the way home I couldn't resist placing the Ken Done umbrella in a more traditional site. I know, I know, it's all a little bit too gaudy - but this is me and Ken Done we're talking about!
Oh, and see my *excellent* necklace? Real silk, real cool - all The Social Studio xo
