Quiet & Coffee

This was a quiet weekend with very little driving, but after devouring thousands of kilometers over the holidays I didn’t really mind taking a break.

Today I took the GT-R out just to warm things up a bit and make sure that it doesn’t sit for too long. I then made a quick stop by Nismo Performance Center to look at some parts while on my way to meet a friend in Shimokitazawa.

I love this little town, I used to live here during my first years in Japan and have really fond memories of it. This time we tried Frankie - a new coffee shop that apparently serves authentic Melbourne coffee and pastries.

I have been here a couple of times before and really like it. I wonder how my Australian friends would rate it though; I know that coffee is a big thing down under.

Shimokitazawa is just 5 minutes away from Shibuya, it’s filled with little vintage clothing shops, small restaurants, mom and pop shops and great bars; a welcome change from the usual franchises.

Today is a lot more popular than it used to be 10 years ago, but its spirit is still intact.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time.
