A lot of department stores in Japan have (or used to have) a museum inside their stores. The other day, Chris and I were wondering what’s on at the Sogo Museum in Yokohama, so we decided to ask at the information counter. We were immediately drawn to a sharp looking mid-aged man who looked as if he was from the 80’s (Showa period), however he surprized us by speaking English. We found it funny that he didn’t recommend the current exhibition (as it was by local kids, not “artists”), saying so in a semi-professional American accent.


Instead we found this white tea salon in a glass case.
