I used to ask my sister why she keeps going back to Japan for holiday year after year, that’s before I stepped foot into Japan. Since my first trip, I too have been going back to Japan for holiday year after year.
Japan is a country that is easy to move around whether by public transport, walk or drive. And food in Japan is great too. Step into any eatery, restaurant or food cart aka Yatai, the food can never go wrong. The experience is always good even if you do not speak a word of Japanese.
As I am an ad-hoc type of traveller, I do not plan on where to eat unless it’s being planned for me or recommended by friends. In my most recent trip to Tokyo, we had meals at different places and we enjoyed all our meals. Following photos captured our experience. Enjoy.😊
From the Narita airport, we headed directly to the hotel in Shinjuku to check in and drop our luggage. We were craving for some warm soupy food and grab a bowl of udon soup at an eatery near the hotel.
At about dinner time, we walked along the streets of Shinjuku and decided to check out this place for dinner. Turned out to be a very good meal. 😋
We were bumming around and reached the Ginza area. Decided to check out this restaurant. Food is good.
As the weather was cool, we were craving for some soupy food. We landed ourselves at a Korean restaurant, had kimchi soup and bulgogi for lunch after visiting the Imperial East Gardens.
When in Japan, it is a must to eat ramen, at least for me. We had a bowl of ramen at an eatery at Shinjuku.
On the last day of our trip before flying back the next day, we made a day trip to Hakone. Lunch at Hakone was good.
After we got back from Hakone, we headed to Ueno Park to see the cherry blossoms. We had a quick dinner at the restaurant at the Ueno Station before heading to Ueno Park.
We had a wonderful time in Japan, we enjoyed the scenery, weather and food. Can’t wait to be back in Japan for another vacation.
Thank you for stopping by, Happy Living for Experiences!
