    Tokyo Part 1 - A wrap up

    May 15 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Tom’s wrap up:
    Our first few days in Tokyo have come to an end today with us jumping on a Shinkansen bullet train bound for Kyoto.
    It’s been my second time to this city and again Tokyo did not disappoint. While the last time I had a wild ride through Tokyo’s Karaoke bars, weird Manga places and its electronic craziness in Akhihabara, this time we took a closer day time look at Tokyo’s diverse sights. And there are so many!!
    My highlights include the Hamarikyu Garden in Ginza, the area of Kagurazaka and the tiny bar scene throughout Kōenji. The tiny bars are just awesome. Ranging from dark holes reminding one of opium dens to posh and stylish wine bars. There’s something for anybody.
    In general I just love the friendliness of people here. No english, no problem. If anything, they will get embarrassed for not being able to help you and do anything to make it work.

    Japan - off to a good start!

    Brief interlude on addresses in Japan for whoever’s interested (Matl):
    Addresses here are structured from big to small units. Something like: Bavaria, Oberbayern, Munich, Sendling, Block 2, Haus 4. The challenge is that houses are not numbered consecutively by location but time of registration of that house. Also streets are merely the space between blocks and rarely named; not the other way around as we are used to.

    SHINJUKU / KABUKİ-CHO / GOLDEN GAI

    November 13, 2015 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Shinjuku est le plus grand arrondissement de Tokyo, avec dit-on la plus importante station de métro au monde (une 50aine de sorties!!).
    Dans le quartier de Shinjuku, on retrouve un sous - quartier à l'est : le Kabuchi-cho. C'est le quartier le plus "cho" de Tokyo avec son "Golden Gai" : 5 longues et étroites ruelles bordées par quelques 200 bars minuscules (de 4m2 environ chacun) contenant au max 8 personnes y compris le patron...juste improbable!

    Et bien sûr l'inévitable kaiten sushi avant d'entamer la soirée: https://youtu.be/icgS8NTqK6g

    Walking through the streets

    July 4, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    One of the first things we noticed here in Tokyo was that they have an incredible amount of vending machines for really everything you can think of. Mostly drinks, sometimes food and sometimes other stuff...
