My dad came to Tokyo for shopping. In the last 2-3 years he has gained a lot of weight and become “big”  and now he is having a trouble to find his clothes at the local shops. Still, he can find some but there are not many choices. In Tokyo, there is this shop “Sakazen“, which sells both casual and formal clothes from regular to big size and is often introduced on TV as a big-and-tall shop. So, we headed to Shinjuku, where there is one of their biggest branches right after we met up at 11am!

On Yasukuni-dori on Saturday morning

Dad entering the shop

Size chart. They even had size 8L!!!

I found a fan in the fitting room, too. A shop clerk said "Our customers like it" XD

I think he enjoyed his shopping there. He ended up buying one winter coat, 2 pairs of trousers and 5 dress shirts.

Afterwards, we walked around Shinjuku and had lunch in Shin-Okubo since he wanted Korean.

At Don Quijote. Dad bought my youngest sister Hello Kitty watch :)

Korean restaurant "Taishikan" (Embassy)


We settled on Set B

Opened 2 bottles of Chamisul

Appetizers, black beans, apple & cabbage mayo salad, lorus root.

Korean style interior with wooden floor

Spicy sour spring onion salad. It was good :)

Korean BBQ~!

Beef (including tongue, liver and some internal organs), pork and prawn

It was still early, so we went back to Shinjuku and Dad bought a one-piece dress for my middle sister. It was expensive but looks really nice. I hope she will like it.

On the way to get his train back home, we stopped by Tokyo station and he bought more souvenirs for the family. Especially, a chocolate cake from Keith Manhattan was gorgeous.

It was a pretty long day, but I enjoyed it and hope so did my dad :)

P.S. Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. I forgot to bring my Canon G11 and needed to use my iPod touch. =/
