On August 2, I met a friend of mine and he suggested going to Sankeien. Neither of us had been there before. So, to get there, we went to Negishi station and took a bus to Honmoku. This post is dedicated to the Honmoku neighbourhood, and Sankeien will follow. Honmoku is a rather high class area that also has many American style houses. It’s near Yamate, about halfway between Yamate and Negishi. The first thing we saw in Honmoku was a very interesting vegetable shop. Take a look at the pictures!
A school bus? This bus was converted into a vegetable shop.
This is a main road going through Honmoku.
This is where I was, Honmoku Sakuramichi.

This is one really big house! Honmoku has a lot of large, expensive houses. Very rich neighbourhood.
This is a quaint European-looking shop. I believe it was a bakery.
Sankeien is only 300 metres away! That's why I was in Honmoku.
These are American style houses. Actually, this area was home to many Americans, which is why there are a lot of American style houses. This group of houses is in a gated community, where you can only enter if you're invited.
A more Japanese style home in Honmoku. It seems to have a nice garden.
That’s it for Honmoku. As I promised, I’m going to start using Google Maps in posts. So, here’s the map for Honmoku!
Next time will be Sankeien!
