A bit of my neighborhood

Nishi Koyama, the station where I live, is old and cute. Yep, those are the adjectives I'd use. Here is the cutest fruit stand which doubles as a "Fruit Parlor." Here you can have fruit desserts, sundaes, and ice cream...The door looks like it's from the 50s. Nearby is the milk shop. I'm not sure who are the customers, but this place delivers little glass bottles of milk...I remember getting them during lunch when I was in elementary school. We usually got normal milk, but twice a month or so we'd get either strawberry milk or coffee milk. The last photo is of a shoe shop. The window is full of slip on black shoes...more grandpa style than trendy. But that's why I like my neighborhood.

I like your neighborhood too. And I am really excited about this blue plastic. To me, it is really Japanese, I can't really explain why, maybe from mangas i used to watch on TV when I was younger, back in Europe but it's got this toy/ultraclean feel. As an echo to your photos, allow me to link to 2 of my pictures.
Are you coming on Friday?

Hi Paul! Cool...since my cell phone is limited quality wise, I never thought I'd catch someone's attention with color. I like your links...I actually for the first time saw blue street cones the other day. They were beautiful.

You bet I'll be there Friday. I've been awfully sick lately and was wondering, but I'm better now, so I'll be there AND I'll be blogging more : ) I have to show up late, but I'll be there before 9pm...let's make sure to meet each other.
