Fresh soy milk at tofu shops is really wonderful. The taste may be a little bit too soy but its freshness beat every minor downside. I drank it like I used to do with milk, straight from the bottle. Feel so refreshed!

I found fashionable fake leather sneakers (for ladies) at Bleu Bleuet, atre UENO, the new shopping center in the train station building. There is also American Pharmacy, an imported fancy goods/foods/drug store, and Starbucks. I didn't check it but the deli, news DELI, possibly have something veggie.

Attended "Vege-Dining Party." To promote their new book, "Vege-Dining," the publisher invited professional chefs and food service people to introduce a variety of vegetarian menus. Yes, we were able to have a bite of each sample, for free! But I was rather impressed with the fact that more than 170 people gathered to see how vegetarian foods were. They looked really serious, I can say. Maybe in the near future, you'll taste delicious vegetarian dishes at hotel dining rooms or restaurants in Tokyo without any problems.
