Books and Wine

This past Sunday, Debs, Kris and I set out on a little adventure of our own. Debs had gotten an email about the most beautiful bookstores in the world, and there happened to be one in Tokyo, not far from where we were sipping coffee. We opted for a walk rather than a single stop train trip. Iphone in hand, we arrived 20 minutes later in darling Daikanyama. Walked past tons of cute shops and a surprising amount of Italian restaurants. Then we found Tsutaya.   

Being a bookaholic herself, Debs let out a squeal as we walked in. It was validated. To say the place was beautiful would be an understatement. 

We looked at books, magazines, maps, photos, pens, stationary, dvds and cds for hours. Finally deciding that we should probably eat dinner and make our way home. We tried to eat in what was essentially a wine bar, in the book store, but it was too crowded. We walked for bit before opting to look in a rustic, Italian looking grocery store where we were pleased to find a reasonably priced restaurant.

Wine. Bread & Olive Oil. Cheese & Salami. Gorgonzola Pasta.
It was an amazing dinner.
