I believe that our school once had a Xmas party in that establishment. Tokyo contains a lot of stylish restaurants at the bottom of old apartment houses.
Earlier today, I wrote up an article regarding the duo paris match and I remembered that I had also provided an article on a duet between them and singer-songwriter Akiko Kohara（小原明子）. "Kagami no Tsuki"（鏡の月）was quite the lovely match (no pun intended) for the two acts. Well, I've decided that I ought to write a little something on Kohara herself.
I found this track called "Glass no Chizu" (Map of Glass) which came on her September 2002 debut album, "Party Drive". Written by Kohara and composed by Ken Matsubara（松原憲）...and no, that wasn't his café that we attended that night...this laidback example of light soul sounds rather ideal on the stereo for a car driving on the Tokyo expressways, perhaps on the way to or from a pleasant gathering of friends in the megalopolis. It fits the mood that the title is hinting at and Kohara's vocals are appealingly cooing and whispery.
Did anyone say a night drive through Tokyo? Enjoy one...courtesy of YouTuber drive slow.
