Night Art Aquarium in Nihonbashi!

I’ve always loved goldfish ever since I was a little kid.  Although I was never able to raise one past a lifespan of about 3 days, the ones I did have (usually won at the county fair) brought me joy in the short time that they stayed alive. So now, when my girlfriend asked me if I wanted to go to an aquarium exhibit in Nihonbashi with thousands of goldfish swimming around, of course I can’t say no!  It’s an “art aquarium”, produced by Hidetomo Kimura, and it only runs during the summer.  And wait a sec… there’s cocktails and DJs at night?  This could be cool. For the full […]

Climbing Mount Fuji – My Suggestions

Climbing Mount Fuji has to be the single most physically-intensive thing I have done in my entire life. However for me, the non-stop rains had bitten out a large chunk of the fun and enthusiasm I had in doing so. I wish to return to the mountain peak again on a nice, sunny day. If you are a prospective climber, you still have around 3 weeks to attempt the feat within this year. However, the mountain inns will still be in operation 2-3 weeks after the official close of the climbing season on September 19th. Many ofthe veteran climbers will recommend that you climb during that time, as there will […]

Monjayaki at Izakaya!

Monjayaki at Izakaya!

First, what is a Monjayaki? It’s a slightly smoother version of Okonomiyakis (Japanese pancake), consisting of flour, yam, egg, cabbage and water and baked on a hot plate table at Izakaya with meat, fish or seafood. Monjayaki comes from Tokyo, unlike the Okonomiyakis are among the specialties of Osaka (better not confuse ^ ^). How to eat this gooey looking dish? You use a tiny spatula. Monjayakis you can also be cooked at home, but it tastes much better when made on the real steel hotplates. The best way to go into the restaurant! In Tokyo, there is the Monjayaki Street in Tsukishima (near the Tsukiji fish market, Ginza and […]

Making Delicious Pudding at Sakura Cafe Jimbocho

This week I was out at Sakura Cafe Jimbocho for a business meeting and decided to stop by the cafe to see what the staff were up to.  Turns out I was lucky, because they were in the kitchen making pudding! To be fair, the only pudding I ever made was stuff out of a box that my mom helped me throw together as a kid.  But this stuff… this is real, handmade, quality, organic pudding, and it ends up tasting nothing short of spectacular. Let’s have a look!   The first step is to mix together the eggs, milk, and honey.  That’s all you need to make pudding!  All […]
