So as many of you do, I enjoy wandering unfamiliar towns. I found this peaceful small but a historical shrine in the Tokyo Hatchobori area by chance! well… I was just lost for a while…. to be honest with you…. The shrine is only a few blocks far from our Share House. I was not lost but just watching things from a different angle!   View Larger Map 於岩稲荷田宮神社 OIWAINARITAMIYA-SHRINE Since 1827. Hatchobori is a town of  ”Chuo-ku” 中央区 where is one of those mysterious towns for me.

A Flower Bouquet Vending Machine in Shinjuku

A Flower Bouquet Vending Machine in Shinjuku

Hello everyone. I cannot wait to introduce this bizarre vending machine in Japan. I have already mentioned a T-shirt vending machine in a funky town,Shimokitazawa, though,I still get confused with the flower one… Seriously…. do we really need it?! It is placed in Shinjuku station and I pass it on a way to Sakura House office every morning. While Millions people pass this station day by day, I have not see anyone actually buying those bouquets. Each priced at 2,000yen. Yes, reasonable price at least. I wonder what does our Spanish colleague,Ricard, think about it… Check out his blog in Spanish too.

Vegetarians/Vegans Restaurants In Tokyo

Vegetarians/Vegans Restaurants In Tokyo

As you know Japanese cuisines are deeply connected with fish so that it is very hard for them to go out for meals in Japan. Even though meals seem to be cooked by all vegetables, soup stock “dashi” which contains fish extract are used most of the time. None of my native Japanese friends are vegetarian nor vegans though, some of my friends from overseas are. One of my vegetarian friends gave up being a vegetarian while she was in Japan for a few years. Some of them […]
