Hello, all! Kate here.
This month I went on a little journey in Brooklyn for the first time since . . . well you know when. I took a Monday off to explore Japan Village which boasts a food hall, grocery store, Book Off, and Daiso.
This particular Book Off carries anime, manga, and related merchandise only. So while it was considerably smaller than the Manhattan store, it was still an otaku oasis with an entire glass wall stuffed full of figures and row upon row of buttons to decorate ita-bags!
I ate my fill of real ramen (which I can’t remember the last time I had), loaded up on random grocery items (Detective Conan furikake doesn’t buy itself, ya know), and bought half a dozen pastries (melon pan ftw).
I felt really energized from visiting some place new!
