Japan , unforgettable memories

Here we are back to this corner to show you what we have done in Japan!
I have met old friends, my daughter made new ones and we are all delighted by so many wonderful memories we are making here.
This is Camila and her new friend Mayumi who took great care of her while visiting Tokyo Disney, she enjoyed Mayumi`s company for her kindness and her patience and she really will remember this day to tell everybody when she gets back home.

Back in Tokyo with my parents, we went to visit some very touristic places near our hotel and there were colorful stores everywhere , we walked under a very cold weather, especially for us, tropical creatures, this was killing!!!

Looking at kids old wooden toys...

Amazing KIMONO fabrics!!

Hotel amenities included foot massage!!! So perfect after a whole day walking!

My dad took us to this Cafeteria that I used to go when I lived in Japan almost 12 years ago , it hasn´t changed , the same old smell of coffee and delicious food in a very small cozy house.

They serve delicious desserts!

Madonna Pomodoro is the name of this small cafeteria and after having tea and cake my brother called us , he was in town with his wife and we went to have dinner at this fantastic sushi house called Kappa Sushi.

Kids love this restaurant for its non stop service of many dishes coming in front of them and they can pick anything they want.
The price is good and the food... yummy if you like Sushi and other Japanese food, this is the place!

Come join us!

Now we are in Kyoto city, we asked for the taxi driver to take us to a short sightseeing and he showed us fantastic spots like these...

Japanese gardens
Kimono fashion


I felt I was back in time, centuries ago for the way people keep these old places so beautiful , clean and open for us, tourists to visit .
We met some friends in Kyoto and we had dinner together, these past few days have been very busy but I promise I will visit everyone´s blog when I get back to Brazil, to my home. Thank you for visiting my blog and thank you for your patience .

Have a wonderful week everyone and see you in a few days!!!
