Sunday in Kichijoji

Got on the Chuo line and headed to Kichijoji in western Tokyo after lunch. It's always busy at weekends, but is somehow more laidback than other areas. Briefly went into Inokashira Park -- watching families in the swan boats whilst eating cinnamon and pumpkin ice cream. Was hoping to see autumn leaves in their splendour, but the wrong mix of trees I think. Will have to go further afield for that I guess. Spent the rest of the time mooching round zakka and clothes shops -- always good fun. Picked up a case of wine at Enoteca for a reasonable price, which will see me well in to the New Year. They always have a good selection and buying the selection of the month case means you can get some great wines at a huge discount. Getting hungry early evening, so had some tempura (for the first time in ages) before heading back home.
