Once we had wondered a bit, it was time for our first stop, Totti Candy Factory. It was a long but fast moving queue to get into the tiny candy shop upstairs. People would go in excited and exit with huge cotton candy cones. I had been anticipating this. When we entered there were no video signs, but people were very obviously making videos of their cotton candy being made at the stations before them (as did I). It was a happy colorful place filled with sweets of various kinds, but the draw was the cotton candy cones bigger than our heads. The colorful swirls of flavored sugar were masterfully made and once outside and a short photo-shoot later, it was time to indulge. A small crowd had formed next to the shop where people were sharing their immense treats. We ate ours fairly quickly and it was quite possibly the best cotton candy I have ever had. Now that I was fueled with sugar, it was time to seek out the first shop on my list, Dog (http://www.dog-hjk.com). • Friday 28 July 2017 • I spent a little over two weeks in Japan, split between Tokyo and Kyoto.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going. • While there is no one theme, the thread that holds my account together is a love of all things beautiful, usually coming in the form of travel, food, art, fashion, and anything that catches my eye or interest.
