JPN DAY16: last day and tomato

Last day in Japan.
We came to see our friends at Farmer's Market at United Nation University, Omotesando.
日本最終日。
仲間に会いに、表参道の国連大学でやっているファーマーズマーケットにいきました。

It was much bigger and much more lively than the last time we'd been here. amazing!
去年に見たのより、ずっと大きく、ずっと賑やかになっててびっくり。

Yusuke Tanaka of Media Surf Communications, is behind this growth.
He built up the tight relationships with venders, customers, and staffs since the opening.
"You know what it is? celery flowers" saying, 25 year old nice guy who cuts the blossoms to display for the eating spaces there. that's why I like him.
その裏側にいるのが、メディアサーフのゆうすけくん。
マーケットがここまで成長しているのも、
沢山の出店者さんやお客さん、運営スタッフとの関係を
丁寧に構築してきた彼の存在なしには、語れない。
「これ、セロリの花なんだよー」なんて、ひとりでちょきちょき休憩スペースに飾ってしまう25歳の好青年。素敵だとおもう。

Onocchi who works for greenz.jp and his girlfriend came to say hi as well! 
ただいまgreenz.jpで働くおのっちと、彼女さんも来てくれた!

After we met Mochizuki kun and Momo chan at Canal Cafe in Iidabashi.
It made me happy that they are very well as before.
I happened to meet Shingo, my classmate from high school.
その後は、飯田橋のCanal Cafeで望月くんと桃ちゃんと再会。
ふたりとも、変わらず元気そうで嬉しいな。
ここで高校時代の、しんごくんにもばったり遭遇。

after finishing a jug of sangria and a bottle of white wine at noon, we still needed more chat.
move to this hidden cafe in Kagurazaka, Coffee no Bigaku. (Coffee Aesthetics)
Coffee is aesthetics of the moment, the store banner says.

昼間からサングリアのピッチャーと白ワイン1本を空けた我々。
話は尽きず、神楽坂にひっそりとたたずむ、珈琲の美学へ。

and we met Tomato, a cutest land turtle they got lately. 
She really likes to eat tomato. 
and surprisingly, there is a tomato plant sprouted from her poop.
彼らが最近飼い始めたという陸カメのとまと。
トマト好きという可愛い亀です。
驚くことに、とまとのうんちから芽がでて、トマトが育っているとか。

I am in love with this flower now.
この花がもっと好きになった。

Looking at your pictures, I feel the urge to take a journey somewhere now just to find out more about new places! I hope you had a good adventure back home :)
