Once every couple of months, our office windows get washed. They go by rather slowly doing their work very meticulously. I can't help but feel like I'm in a fishbowl. I usually continue working for the sake of not bothering them, but once I didn't know they were there and jumped in my seat when I looked out the window. They saw me and laughed; I ended up waving at them.

The food pic is of a tiny 惣菜屋 (souzaiya). Two friendly women cook all day and have a delicious variety to choose from by evening. Living on my own, it is cheaper to buy my dinner there and I get to have a taste of several dishes instead of being stuck with one for 3 days. And it's totally healthy. Love it!

Lastly, if you look REAL carefully, you can see the tip of Fuji-san in the background. It's one reason I got my apartment. There's something about Fuji-san that continues to take my breath away every time...

hey Mie,
lovely pics. wow, you've got quite the little view from your office window, how many floors up is that?
I'm particularily fond of the food pics, they look especially deeeelish-makin' me really hungry...you can't beat the local, homemade grub with these reasonable?? prices??

thanks for your earlier reply...I really am looking forward to seeing and experiencing Tokyo and Japanese culture.

cheers :)

Dear Mie,
I used to be able to see Fuji San from
my front door ,in Fussa Machi, many years ago.
But if you can see it from Tokyo, Your
apartment must be realy high up,ne!

Hi Kuma,

Actually, I'm only on the 5th floor. It's the top of my apt. building and rather high for the neigborhood, but that's why I chose my neighborhood...although the newer apts. seem to be getting higher and higher...
