To describe this photo, here’s the text from my post for Dannychoo.com uploaded earlier today:

*Twinkle* and I are having a lazy day today, the fourth day of the Silver Week holiday.

We’ve come out to Jiyugaoka, just a couple of stops down the line from our station, and 10 mins from Shibuya on the Tokyu Toyoko line.

Jiyugaoka (自由が丘, meaning ‘free hill’) is a pretty posh shopping area: with a lot of international brands and high-class cafes it’s popular with celebrities – a friend of mine regularly hangs out in the road outside the station (Marie Claire St.), celebrity spotting!

We’re in La Maison, one of the cafes that makes the town famous for cakes and sweets. Whilst I’d originally chosen the Special Autumn Set, and my wife the Mont Blanc, it seems that the tiramisu and caramel ice cream was too much for her to resist, so she’s swapped our plates, as you can see in the photo!

We’re just promising each other that we’ll start our diets tomorrow!

Here’s some more photos from our evening exploring Jiyugaoka
