I did my last minute shopping back at Aeon since I got home late and the fact that it had everything I needed to get there.

Few Snaps – Tokyo: June is Hydrangea Month

June is Hydrangea month in Japan and I thought I’d better post the few pictures I took while I was walking around Tokyo before June actually ends.

These hydrangeas were in Nihonbashi in front of a shop(but I forgot what) next to a fly-over high-way. I loved how it was so developed in the area and then you just find a bunch hydrangea plants just blossoming in the centre of it all. Kudos to the owner of that shop!

I was a bit surprised to see Chifure sold in a pharmacy/drug store considering the fact that Chifure is more commonly found in large established department stores. The price of their stuff is more appropriate to pharmacies, but the brand positions themselves as affordable in price but upscale in quality of product. Its a more unique sort of marketing that I think might spread to other parts of retail world.
