Tokyo suburb stroll


leading through Oyama city: the national route 50
Some time ago, Teddy and me visited his parent's home in Oyama, a typical Tokyo suburb and so-called "bedtown". Many commuters use the one hour lasting rail connection to Shinjuku station. The trains are always packed during rush hour >.<' 

Teddy's mom treated us yummy Japanese dishes- huge amounts of them. So we decided to went for a walk to burn some calories, where we only got tempted to buy some sweets for desert *sigh*


kawaii, dolly desserts at Baskin Robbins  
Teddy got a "Ramune Cream Fizz" at "31"
- Ramune is a popular Japanese soda
my bubble tea from "Charmy" ^ω^
Charmy~ ice cream & bubble tea store


On our way home we passed a cute mini-house, which was actually home to a real estate office.
Oyama becomes more and more popular among Tokyo families lately, who are searching for an affordable place, still in the exurban fringe.
