田園調布 denenchofu

i went out on an adventure! 🙂 after finding out that the mansion used as masamune-kun‘s apartment in the my girl drama was in a small town called 田園調布 denenchofu, i decided to set out to look for it!


the houses in my neighbourhood had their carp streamers out :3


a sign at the local shrine : may they grow up healthily!

takadanobaba –> [yamanote line] –> meguro –> [tokyu meguro line] –> denenchofu


🙂 i arrived at a surprisingly quiet and pretty town!


i have no idea why but it reminds me of a western country…


foreigners often complain about how hard it is to find places in japan due to the messy layout of the address system, but i find it quite helpful! i find places quite easily with these little blue signs and the signs painted on lamp poles along the street


🙂 the apartment where masamune-kun lived at! it’s actually an unused western building that belongs to the house next to it


wisteria in the gardens


take a peek through the fence 🙂


i found an opening, so i went in!


the main entrance


the decorative birdhouse hung on a tree branch. this birdhouse was photographed in the my girl fanbook as well!


really pretty flowers that look like cherry blossoms, but i don’t think they are…


this sort of looks like a scene out of an english book!


hiro lazing in one of the birdcages >w<


hello!


even the flowers by the roadside are dancing in the spring breeze!


so happy!


this looks like a very expensive neighbourhood to live in


not many people walking around too…


tea time at lepi dor 🙂


i found out about it online and even though it looks intimidating on the outside, it’s actually a pretty affordable place!


i ordered the millefeulle and the gateau fraise


a close up of the gateau fraise. they used real whole strawberries in between the layers!!! *o*


the best millefeulle in the world


i love my rabbit brooch


the main sales counter downstairs at the patisserie 🙂


the other side of town


is it just me, or does it look like an old cowboy movie setting?


in front of a (closed) cafe. i understand the sign about no smoking, but the one about drugs…


the cutest sign ever


多摩川 tama river


a nice building at 狛江 komae!


i love the colour gradiations!


carp streamers are everywhere :O they love their boys huh?


this house is really awesome, they have wisteria hanging over their front gates *O*


a traditional good old barber
