Flat Jenny said she wanted to see some of the busy districts in Tokyo so we took a walk around the Roppongi area. She was welcomed by a gigantic spider at Roppongi Hills. This spider symbolizes the role of Roppongi Hills as a place where people gather from across the globe to weave new webs of information and interaction!

We went to an art museum called 21_21 Design Sight. The building was designed by a well-known Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Very unique and modern!
We went inside and enjoyed the Irving Penn and Issey Miyake exhibition.
The photos were inspiring. By the way, Steve Jobs' black turtlenecks were designed by Issey Miyake.

After our inspiring day in Roppongi, we went out to have a yakitori dinner. She enjoyed the Oyakodo, chicken and egg bowl, too with some cold sake!
