Snacks from Tokyo


One of the fun thing to do when visiting Japan is to try the different kind of snacks…when I looked back at these photos then I realized we didn’t buy enough!

Shibuya, Tokyo


One of the must-do thing for us in Shibuya is to go to Umegaoka Sushi no Midori. It was around 2pm when we got there and there was still a long queue! We waited for about 30mins or so, the place is packed with locals and tourists.

Eating around Shinjuku Tokyo


A collection of what we ate while we were in Shinjuku…

A ver nice bakery & cafe next to JR station south exit. It was so close to our hotel we ended up having breakfast here almost every day. One downside is their coffee isn’t strong enough for me.

Restaurants inside department stores offer a wide selection and usually they won’t go wrong…at least not for Isetan.

We chose an restaurant that specializes in unagi…while hubby chose the typical set, I had a more interesting one…

Yakitori Hachi-bei @ Roppongi Hill, Tokyo


We have finally came to the realization that the most local restaurants in Shinjuku/Shibuya area are not our cup of tea anymore so I found this yakitori place in Roppongi area. They have a few branches in Tokyo but we went to this one at Roppongi Hill.

This place is modern, with good ventilation, non-smoking and spacious – just what I like.
