Time in Takatsuki

We were pretty much excited for our Takatsuki trip! Takatsuki is located in between Kyoto and Osaka and we were excited to be able to explore the Kansai region! It was really nice of our friend Takuto to invite us back to his hometown and host us in his Takatsuki apartment for those 12 days….

Ice Cream at Edo Usagi

We fell upon this place during the summer when I saw a kid walking happily down the street near to My Basket with an ice cream cone in his hands. I don’t know what got into me but I had the sudden urge to get a cone when I saw the kid with one and…

French Food at A La Campagne

We fell upon this restaurant after a series of unforeseeable events. After the rather nice burger meal we had at Rainbow Kitchen the day before, J thought that it would be nice for us to get more sushi from Midori. He had found some information about Midori having a shop near to Ikebukuro and thought that…

Burger at Rainbow Kitchen

It was time to take a little break after having eaten all the sushi and sashimi there is. On my birthday (June 2014), J thought it would be nice for us to have some burger and fries instead. I love fries and upon hearing that we were going to have some I was practically excited to…

Sushi at Sushizan mai

We love sushi! Sushizan Mai is a sushi chain that is rather known for quality sushi. After eating at Midori sushi, we were trying to find an equivalent to the restaurant and J thought about this sushi chain. There are not that many chains of Midori sushi so we had to make do with what we…

Cakes from Fujiya

We love our desserts, especially cakes and most of the time for convenience sake, we would usually get our dessert at Inageya but at times, we would get our cakes from Fujiya. The quality of the cakes are not that bad and J thinks that the sweetness of it is just right. Me and J would…

140 yen Sushi at Heiroku Sushi

We were constantly getting our sushi from Inageya and to have that sushi dine-in experience, J thought it would be nice to go back to a sushi place he would frequent when he was staying in Nippori mostly because it was relatively cheap. The sushi place is located somewhere near to Ueno specifically near to…

Zesty Tsukemen at Yanaka

After much exploring around Yanaka, it can be said that this Ramen shop, located a little after Yanaka Ginza is one of the places around Yanaka that serves some pretty kickass ramen. The Ramen shop is rather small and is noticeable with its blue banners with the Japanese characters and Menyahidamari written on it and a…

Yakitori at Torikizoku in Nippori

Where do you go when its late at night, you are hungry and you want some chicken? Well in Japan, the yakitori-ya is the place to go! J’s old roommate from Korea was back to Tokyo to visit and was complaining that he was rather hungry. Since it was rather late at night (10pm or so),…

Aromatic Coffee at Yanaka Coffee

Whenever we are walking or riding our bicycles around the Yanaka area, this quaint little coffee shop always attracts us to it. You know you are near to this coffee place as the aromatic coffee smell would attract you. We would always come over here when J wants to get his coffee fix and the reason…

Cheesecake at Pablo

After an amazing sushi meal at Midori Sushi, Jacqueline and Jennifer were asking J and me about a cheesecake we have never heard of. Jacqueline was saying on how it is one of the popular items to get while in Japan and that we should try to get it! It took some walking from Mark…

Santa Monica Crepes at Harajuku

There is this allure of crepes and whipped cream which always gets to me. I pretty much have a sweet tooth and I enjoy eating desserts a lot. You could find a lot of crepe shops if you walk to Harajuku street but we ended up choosing Santa Monica for our crepes. The displays of…
