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….

From Tokyo to Kyoto on Willer Express

Our friend Takuto had invited us to his hometown in Takatsuki and we decided to take the opportunity to visit his hometown for 12 days in June last year. Takatsuki is a town located in between Osaka and Kyoto and for us, it was a nice base location to travel around the Kansai region. To get…

Cycling around the Imperial Palace

J dragged me out on one of the days in June 2014 and we took time to cycle a little bit further down south to Chiyoda. We were discussing about the places that I have never been to in Tokyo and J recommended that we cycle to Chiyoda to see the Imperial Palace as he…

Ueno Exploring

I always will remember Ueno as the place where we would either go to enjoy the scenery or a place we would pass through as we would head up to Akihabara or anywhere south. To get to Ueno from Nippori, we would usually cross the Yanaka Cemetery. I love cycling through the park and I find…

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…

Asakusa Exploring

Whenever I think about Asakusa, I remember it as the first area in Tokyo that I visited on my first trip to Japan in 2012. It was with my friend Rosi and we were staying at this hostel called Khaosan Tokyo Annex that was located in the Asakusa area. Rosi’s uncle who was staying in Japan…

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…

Our Bicycles in Tokyo

Bicycles are a pretty common sight in Japan and most people have bicycles as they are convenient to travel with. It’s cheap and it doesn’t use petrol so it is cost-saving too. The other modes of transportation such as trains and buses are efficient but still you would need to pay each time and the…
