Well today will be another Japan Trip 4 post, and after this one there is only one more! I'm actually surprised I could write about this trip all the way until my next one haha, I guess something things just fall into place. Based on this I can expect about 6 months worth of posts from my next trip haha!
After shopping around Shibuya earlier I headed over to Yoyogi park. Actually I had gotten all turned around while walking in Shibuya, and I didn't realize how I had gotten to Yoyogi Park at first haha. Looking at a map later in the day I thought "Is that really the way I went? It seemed like the opposite direction..." haha!
Actually I had never been to Yoyogi Koen before, not during any of my trips haha, even though it is a tourist destination. Especially since it is known for street performers and the dancing greasers on the weekends haha. But for some reason I had never thought about visiting there in the past.
A band playing in Yoyogi Koen
And even this time I didn't have a full experience with Yoyogi park; I entered it part way, said "Yep, this is the park." and turned around ^^;; However I was able to see one group of preformers in the park before I left. It was a 3 man band playing some rockish type music. The guitar sounded a bit out of tune, but the singer had a nice voice in my opinion.
However they were play not 2 or 3 meters away from this sign haha!
Don't be making your noise here haha!
After heading back out of Yoyogi Koen, I headed to cafe to grab a snack and get out of the cold. It was sunny, but windy so the air was quite biting. The cafe I decided to enter was called And on And (that's so difficult to say, I want to say on and on!) which is a donut cafe run by the Mister Donut company.
And on And has a much more mature and cafe atmosphere than Mister Donut shops, but the clintele didn't appear to be different. There were mostly young couples, but there were also groups of friends and families with small children. Although people were bringing in lots of strollers, I wouldn't recommend that since the tables were packed in rather tightly.
Facade of And on And
I choose a limited time donut, which was tofu or something I think, and my friend got the chocolate donut. The prices were higher than Mister Donut, and the options were not as numerous. I can't say the quality and flavor of the donuts were bad, but it was not as refined or mature as I imagined it would be. Overall they were just ok.
I think they look a little better than they taste haha
I don't think I would ever choose to go to And on And over Mister Donut, but the location near Yoyogi is convenient and the dining room was fairly large (although completely jam packed).
Today's post is a bit short, I used a lot of my brain energy doing a smaller paper earlier today. But with that paper complete, I only need to clean up my big paper and everything is set for the end of the semester. Which is good, because I have seriously checked out haha!
