found this sweet book in a store in jimbocho that specialises in vintage craft and children's books; full of good stuff. it's by taiji harada, about a kid who goes to visit his grandma in the country.
i'm leaving tokyo soon and i've pretty much decided there isn't anything i can do before i leave that would make it feel like i've gotten enough tokyo. there'll always be more stuff i want to see or do here. so anyway, i'm doing a lot of my favourite tokyo stuff these days, like mooching around the bookstores in jimbocho.
