TOKYO SKY TREE & Moomin House Cafe

休暇を取ったカールおじさんの妹が、日本にやって来ました!
Carl's sister took holiday and came to Japan!
と言う訳で、10日間思いっきり遊んで、私たちもバカンス気分♪まずは、東京スカイツリーへ!!
So we went out almost everyday while she's here for ten days and we also enjoyed our "holiday". First of all, we headed to the latest sightseeing spot, Tokyo Sky Tree!

押上駅から行きました。でっか〜〜〜い!平日ですが、まずまずの混み具合。といっても、私たちの目的はのぼることではないんです。そう、お買い物☆
It's a tall TV tower! We got off at Oshiage station and soon found the tower. It's more than 600m tall! And there were full of people even though on a weekday. However, our purpose wasn't the tower...but shopping!

偶然、地元神社のお祭りの日だったようで、行列に牛車も!これには感動。
We came across a festive march of a local shrine. Lucky us! We were excited to see the cow carriage.

しかし、ママと息子は隣のプラレールショップです…。
But mama and our son had to go to Plarail Shop next to it.

最大の目的、ムーミンハウスカフェ!こちらは東京スカイツリー駅(業平橋のままでよかったのに…)の真下というか、中というか、もちろん、駅ナカではありません。やはり行列に並んで、お腹が空きすぎる前に入れました。
The biggest target, Moomin House Cafe! It is almost in the Tokyo Sky Tree station (I wish the name of the station stayed "Narihira-bashi"...much nicer), but out of the gate (no tickets needed). We waited in the line for a while and were seated before getting too hungry.

店内の様子。決して広くはありませんが、雰囲気はバッチリ。
Inside the shop/cafe. It's rather small, but we felt like we were in the moomin house.

私たちの隣にはムーミンママが座っていて、息子は大喜び。でも、よくよく見たら、目が青くて…ムーミンがママのエプロンしていました!!!(ママの目は緑)
Moomin mama was sitting next to us, and my son was so happy. But when we looked carefully, she had blue eyes...it's Moomin wearing mama's apron!! (Mama's eyes are green FYI).

ミーの顔のラテ。私の誕生日だったので、クーポンでタダになりました☆

スーベニアカップのプリン。下にカラメルがあるのを知らず、プリンだけ先に食べてしまった…。
Pudding with a souvenir cup. I didn't know there was caramel syrup in the bottom so I ate most of the custard part without the sauce...


いやぁ、楽しかったです。お店も(カールおじさんが迷うほど)いっぱいあって!でも、残念だったのは、正統派の和菓子のお店がほとんどなかったことかなぁ…。
It was fun! There are so many shops down there (that Carl got lost)! But I regret that there aren't many traditional Japanese sweets shop.
