It’s our 3rd year in Tokyo!
We love love this place, the people, the food, the culture, the confusing trains and thankfully I can say for 2017, the weather.
Warm, but windy with light rain – it’s all I can ask for!
So, we are here for work again but we try to find some time for ourselves no matter day or night.
We dutifully wake up early in Tokyo, Japan because come on!!!!! It’s the LAND OF THE RISING SUN. (trumpet effect in action)
Anyway we can’t get enough of Japan and we plan to bring the brood soon, hopefully…. eventually?
So, let’s go shall we?
1) Our daily breakfast which costs ¥550/person + coffee/tea/juice of your choice
So typically, it’s almost the same good stuff everyday – salmon or mackarel; raw egg or scrambled; white rice or brown.
2) Ahhhh after setting up our booth at the exhibition centre, we always head to Aqua City Odaiba where the Great Ramen Stadium is located!
7th Floor baby!
3a) Kissaten hunting time – the very best for me is Chatei Hatou which is situated at Shibuya, 3-min walk from Shibuya station, pass Tower Records, in a dark alley.
This 29 year old cafe is like a pilgrimage site for traditional coffee.
The cottage looking place, the exterior itself brings you back down memory lane – not that I was born yet in that era (am just saying-go with da’flow)
3b) Another cafe to look out for to check-off that checklist of yours, is Cafe de L’ambre. People call this ‘The Legendary’ cafe.
Reviews said that if you are looking for the best damn coffee experience then don’t look any further as they’ve been serving quality coffee in Ginza since 1948 and have been using a classic Fuji roaster.
But bear in mind, they serve ‘COFFEE ONLY’ and no others.
4) Walking around Kappabashi-dori a.k.a. Kitchen Town
After doing part window shopping part shopping (wink^ wink^), we found a cafe! Looks pristine on the outside, all white kinda like a modern castle. So, we went in!
5) Our date with Tomoko
After spending almost a week in Tokyo, it was time for me to leave. The hubs will be continuing his business trip without me or should I say, I will be returning to KL without him.
TOKYO 4th TIME – COMING SOON
