I was at Yokohama Red Bricks two weekends ago with my friend, Mark. I've been wanting to go since last December because they've set up a pop-up iceskating rink that would only last 'til February. Skating is one of my favourite hobbies as a kid even if we don't have winter back in the Philippines, we have rinks. Lately, I've been thinking really hard if I should go back and learn how to skate? But first, where could I buy some white skates? Please help me!
Inside The Red Brick house there are restaurants such as this butI haven't tried GRIP, that organic sign is really tempting me nonetheless! But I loved nana's green tea and Bill's. I must not forget to order their famous Ricotta pancake next time though!
The skating are was packed and I got blue skates as usual.. I want the white one please!!
Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse / 横浜赤レンガ倉庫 / Yokohama Akarenga Sōko is actually a historical building but now used as a shopping complex with restaurants. It is still sophisticated as ever and it is one of my favourite landmarks in Yokohama!
See what I meant when I said that my skin has changed? I wore Shu Uemura face powder by the way, no lipstick, just mascara.
So many kids diving in the rink! It was hilarious.
How to get to Red Brick Warehouses? Get off at Sakuragi-cho Station and walk about for 10 minutes.
You'll pass by Cup Noodles Museum (that I haven't been to but I must) before getting there.
Mark was really good in photography and composition! Ahhh so lucky to find friends who share the same passion.
Yokohama reminds me of Kobe a lot. Which is good but I'm still bias to Kobe. Kobe is tinier and lovelier in my opinion.
Mark helped me with all my photos - aren't they amazing? He's definitely my favourite photographer friend right now! Thanks Mark!!
What to do in Yokohama? Aside from the Red Brick Warehouses, there's also Chinatown, where the classiest Hello Kitty restaurant is located.
We ate at Ootoya and I got tonkatsu. I'm so predictable when it comes to food, aren't I?
How many secrets can you keep?
My favourite part of the day! Watching the chefs make candies live!
Year of the Sheep.. me-eh-eh-ehhh!
In love with this photo of the port..
Wishing for more days like this! Hopefully I get to explore more of Yokohama so that I could write a guide about it.. which is ironic because I live pretty close but I'm always in Tokyo.
