Minor detail...

I love bookshops and whenever I travel I usually make a bee-line for whichever bookshop happens to be the best. I was spoilt for choice in Tokyo and was lucky enough to stay in a hotel that was virtually next door to one.
Okay, I don't actually speak or read Japanese but no matter - the books, on just about every subject from interior design to craft, are brilliant. No surprise to find loads of fantastic children's books. I spent ages just pouring over beautifully illustrated hardbacks that were very reasonably priced. I couldn't go past this one, especially when I saw that lovely shop with all the sewing notions. Way cute.
