In one of my efforts to deny the fact that summer is coming to an end, my bff and I went to hang out at a pool the other day after work.
Did you know Keio Plaza hotel has a pool? It’s right down the street from where I work so it’s the perfect spot to cool down during the summer. It’s kind of surreal seeing the skyscrapers rise high above us. It’s also a great place to practice the breaststroke. I’d forgotten how much harder it is to stay afloat in the pool when compared to the ocean. I think we were the only ones swimming laps but it was fun.
Week day pool nights are the best!

I love the idea of a nighttime swim, but … can neon lights deepen your tan? 😀
PS: Please note Starbucks cup, everybody!
PPS: Did you notice how many leaves the keyaki trees in front of the hotel have lost?
Seventh-floor Sky Pool? It would be strange looking way up at skyscrapers while on the 7th floor.
I can’t help thinking of another pool in a Shinjuku hotel.
(It being a pool maybe those are UV lights. To keep out the glare I guess you would need a pair of moonglasses).
My skin accumulates the tiniest rays into a tan so you never know!
PS: Oh you noticed my drink! Teehee. Of course it's Starbucks…conveniently located in the next building over.
PPS: Did you notice, too? It seems like the trees have been in fall mode all through the summer this year! Keeping my eye on them…
I didn't know Park Hyatt had a pool, too. It looks like it's indoors? I always forget about that hotel since it's so far away! Maybe we'll have to give that pool a try after it gets too cold outside 😉
