Back in Hometown Hachioji / 帰郷


帰ってきてすぐ地元の写真を撮りました。This is my home town Hachioji, Tokyo. These pictures were taken on 2nd day of staying in Japan.

It’s been a while since ECO boomed among Japanese people. Eco Car Festival was going on, on the “You road.” I found the tiny cute eco car from TOYOTA, IQ and then got in a car.

結構、車内は広かったよ♪ It’s tiny but inside front had more space.
これ以外にも、レクサス、ヴォルクスワーゲン、メルセデスとかなどなど飾ってありました。They were showing Lexus,VW,Mercedes,and so on.

駅ビルデパート「そごう」は家から歩いて10分のとこにあります。This department store,SOGO is 10 min away from my home.

向かい側にはTokyu Square(東急系列のセレクトショップがいっぱい入ってる)ビルもあって、久々帰ってきたんだなぁ~としみじみ。。。
This is another biggest mall in my home town, located across the street from SOGO, called Tokyu Square building. There are bunch of shops inside of the building. Uniqlo is in here too. I felt like wow! I’m back.

In basement area of department stores in Japan, there’s food section, such as bakerys,bento,seafood, meat, Japanese sweeets, International Sweets, and sozai.


買ってないけど (笑 、このモナカアイス、抹茶とかバナナとかミルクとかうまそう~!
I haven’t gotten this ice cream yet…,but looking sooooo goood isn’t it?? There are variety of the flavors. Green tea, Bananas,Milk…mmmmmmmmm!

This bakery is one of my favorite since I was a kid. One of the biggest bakery brand named “Pompadour”.

This “Chocolate Ring Doughnut” is my favorite one 🙂 I always get it when I come home. Sooooooo gooooooood!

There are 3 to 4 big bakery in SOGO, and another one is in Tokyou Square building. I am bread and pastry freak, these places are heaven…(=^~^)o∀

This potsticker’s store was really good. I think the store name in English pronounced, “hao ciaoz.”….:$
ニラ餃子2ヶと、しそ餃子2ヶ、普通の餃子6ヶ購入して、その日、夕飯でよっち(父)が作ってくれたお好み焼きと一緒に食べました。We got 2 nira onions potstickers, 2 perilla potstickers and 6 regular pot sticers with my dad’s okonomiyaki
