Sayonara

My last day in Japan was reserved intentionally to loiter around Tokyo city like a local would on a laid back Saturday tinted with beautiful weather. The master plan was to explore Ginza; lounging along serene streets lined neatly by idle trees, catching up with long lost friends over tea, winding down the evening as we stand in admiration of Tokyo Central Railway Station, and ending the day with a sweet […]

Tsukiji Fish Market

Tsukiji Fish Market is definitely a must-visit when traveling Tokyo. Whether you’re there for the market or a giant bowl of maguro don, you’re IN for a helluva experience. Here I’ve logged mine for you, so just sit back and enjoy the virtual visit! {First things first: Watch out for these machines because as clumsy as they look, they hustle around the market fast when operated by the busy fishmongers}   {I couldn’t help wondering […]

Goya Champuru

Everyone has different priorities when traveling and one of mine, undeniably (and inevitably), is to have a great food hunt. There is so much culture and adventures in food, just like in the museums or mountains you climb. Think about it. We all eat to survive, but how food is prepared in different countries has actually been through an evolution; influenced by the country’s culture and geographical factors today. Aren’t […]

A Day in Tokyo

While there are many versions of Tokyo travel itinerary, I crafted mine to be around the highlight of shopping and unearthing the city’s pretty secrets; like discovering the oldest crepe shop in Harajuku and hunting down Hachikō, the famous dog statue at Shibuya Station that comes with SIX exits. Among it all, strolling along the beautiful tree-lined streets of Omotesandō really left me yearning for Tokyo even more than before. In this […]

Shinjuku’s Memory Lane

I wouldn’t mind smelling like yakitori when it comes to Omoide Yokocho a.k.a. Shinjuku’s Memory Lane or its nickname, ‘Piss Alley’. Imagine wands of tasty morsels smoked to perfection, accompanied by delightful sips of hot sakae that kisses you ever so sweetly on the lips, trickles down your throat, warming you up from the inside. This place makes even the most serious Japanese businessman on the metro open his heart for a […]

Tokyo at Night

Started another bright new day with a hearty bento set at Kyoto Station that hustled humbly with every bite of matcha KitKat. Tokyo was the only thing on my mind that morning. All that’s left was to embark on the swift change from this beautiful cultural town to the strong pulsing city that’s waits for no one. Lunch cost: 1665 ¥ Cost | Bullet train from Kyoto – Tokyo: 27, 820 ¥ […]
