Our annual trip to Tokyo for Tokyo Design Festa was November 10-11 this year. As usual, we took the train Saturday morning, spent Saturday at Design Festa, stayed at Toyoko Inn Saturday night, then did other stuff on Sunday before heading home.
This year’s Design Festa didn’t have much for Kenji, although I found one or two new art pieces. We bought an awesome cut-paper design of a fish for the house, I got a super happy flower for the entrance way, and Kenji bought me a really awesome constellation cup that caught my eye.

For Sunday, the first order of business was to head to a cat cafe. The last time we went to Tokyo, we tried to go, but didn’t have an appointment and didn’t want to wait. This time we called ahead and made sure we could go before heading to Ueno.

After that we checked out the new restorations of Tokyo Station, then headed to Shinjuku so Kenji could get his camera lens cleaned, and from Shinjuku we headed home.
