Glass House in Tokyo

In a connected world where privacy is a valued, but diminishing part of daily life, home remains a reliable refuge. But here’s one home that intentionally strips away even that illusion for its inhabitants. In this nearly transparent Tokyo home, known as House NA, outsiders can see everything and everyone inside. Tucked into a quiet residential neighborhood, this three-story, 914 square-foot home was created by an award winning Tokyo architect named Sou Fujimoto. His unusual design, with high glass walls and varying sized modular tables, contains 21 “floor plates” for residents and guests to sit, work, cook, eat, sleep, or play. Some of the floor plates are heated to provide comfort in the winter. Surprisingly, Fujimoto’s multi-level home design wasn’t inspired by stacked phone booths but rather by the concept of a tree with perches on both high and low branches. “The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another … “ said Fujimoto, a lecturer at Kyoto University, in a statement explaining House NA. Though the home is almost entirely transparent, there are curtains that provide some modicum of privacy for occupants. Still, living in a fishbowl might make residents think twice about climbing down to breakfast without first getting dressed. From: Yahoo News

Tokyo Travel: A Day In Harajuku
Back in February I spent a few days in Tokyo. Here's a look into my day spent in Harajuku :) It all started at the Meiji Shrine in Yoyogi Park. I mistakenly took the subway from my Airbnb to Harajuku in Tokyo's famous rush hour. The train was absolutely packed and there were men working for the station who helped show people on. Luckily, I grabbed a good spot and was able to hop on and off easily without being squished. I then took a peaceful walk through the nearly deserted paths leading to the shrine. I was able to walk around, catching glimpses of monks rushing around, and listen to some chanting. I got myself a talisman for peace of mind and headed back into the bustling city. I then took a loooooong walk to the best latte I've ever had. The cafe is called Streamer Coffee Co. and their military latte is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It contains chocolate, green tea, while chocolate, and espresso. I know that sounds like a total mess but the flavors meshed perfectly! I was able to hang out there for a while, using their wifi and reading the book I brought with me. Once I felt ready to leave, I headed to Number Sugar. This tiny shop sells handmade caramels in all different flavors. You can buy adorable box sets and the lovely girls working there will be sure you get exactly what you want. They aren't even that expensive which is awesome! It was about $0.70 for each piece (twice the size of the photo, I had already eaten most of it haha!) I got vanilla caramel and almond caramel! After that I went to Kiddy Land where I went to each of the 4 stories trying not to buy everything that had Totoro on it. I was pretty successful and only got myself a Spirited Away mug, though I did buy quite a few presents for friends and family :) From there I ventured down Harajuku's most famous street filled with places selling crepes, crazy Japanese fashion, and tons of toys. It is here that I found my true love. I really love takoyaki. They're just batter, onions, pickled ginger, and squid (tako in Japanese) fried in a special pan and covered in a mayo-sauce, fish flakes, and some spices. They are HEAVENLY. This man made works at Koi-Tako (aka Love Squid) and made me some perrrrrfect Kimchi Takoyaki (yeah I know, why Kimchi in Japan???) But then it got weird... You can't see it really well in the photo, but they put GOLDEN GLITTER on my takoyaki. Why you ask? I DON'T KNOW. I ate it though, and didn't die. So, there's that. I grabbed a sakura green tea (oi ocha is the best bottled tea EVER) and headed back towards my home in Shinjuku. I'd give yourself a solid 2-3 hours to take Harajuku in at a slow pace. It's worth it!
