Virtual Tokyo Tour



Asaska Market



Conveyor belt sushi



The aftermath of conveyor belt sushi





Macha Tea and Sweets



Wishes tied to a fence in Kamakura

In dungeon bar, "The Lock Up"



The water glass



The Ice Cream Museum- includes flavors such as Macha, Milk, Double Cheese (my fave), and some other interesting flavors such as Soy Sauce Ice Cream, Chicken Wing Ice Cream, Beef Tounge Ice cream (with chunks of beef mixed in..I know this because my friend had the guts to try it), and last but not least CHARCOAL Ice Cream!

Tokyo is an incredible city. I was fortunate to have been invited by one of my best friends. I ate a lot of conveyor belt sushi, convenient store bento boxes, and black sesame ice cream. We subwayed all over the city to Harajuku, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Asaksa, Kamakura, and the Tokyo Contemporary art museum. Some of the highlights were the food, amazing service, adorable old people, and unbelievable street style. I have many stories, but the pictures speak for themselves. I upload some video later on.

Glad to be back in NY.

I love to visit Tokyo. Words can not express how jealous I am. It's such a beautiful city. I think I would do just as much damage at a sushi bar.

Incredible photos. I must visit Tokyo again! Only have childhood memories of it, and it just isn't the same going there as an adult. Conveyor belt sushi is a dangerous thing - whenever I go, my hands remove plates off the belt without me even conciously realizing.

Keith said...

For some reason I have always been obsessed with conveyor belt sushi. Needless to say, I have never experienced it for myself - but I must! Love these pictures! A trip to Tokyo sounds divine! :)

indigotangerine said...

I hope to visit Japan someday. The culture is so incredibly different and I think it would be really interesting. The wish fence is beautiful.

Have you ever had a need to visit a place? Tokyo for me is one those places. I have one more trip to China before I can start thinking of Tokyo again.
