However, most foreigners do not know that Tsukiji is also famous for the ” Tsukiji Hongwanji Temple “which is also registered as a National Treasure of Japan. The Temple was designed by Chuta Ito who actually had visited India many times prior to designing this. Over the weekend, I decided to go for a troll in the streets to admire at the architecture ( as I am a huge fan of Architecture ) and I came across a unique Temple like no other . […]
Last weekend I had the chance to travel to Nikko, for the very first time and I have some wonderful information for the Muslim community.

One of the main attractions that you will come across during the winter time in Japan are the illuminations. One of my favorite spots to visit and take pictures of the illuminations after work is located right in Shinjuku ( South gate behind the bus terminal ), which is also close to our head office.

Also, for those of you who are working late and do not really have time to spend with your partner, this place can be your last minute resort to save your day […]

When you come to Tokyo, what is one of the first spots you have to see? Definitely Harajuku! Tokyo’s crazy fashion center! But it’s not only the teenage culture that makes Harajuku interesting. You can see that on one side there is Japan’s cute side, but on the other, the traditional side.
