Scenery around Tokyo
Toddlers transported by trollies
Cube-shaped Japanese cars
Kids walking to school
Wandering around Nakameguro
The Meiji shrine was a nice getaway in the middle of the city. A walk through the park was a much-needed breath of fresh air and nature. I was told later by my uncle that the huge torii gate was built with wood from Taiwan.
Arakawa river – so flat
Cycling around the imperial palace
Cafe Kitsune for brekkie
Coffee and cycling go together 🙂
All of the food
I love Japanese food. Just look at its presentation… This is a canteen lunch from the Amazon head office – just a regular workplace cafeteria and everything is compartmentalised and made with care.
Who knew the best pizza is found in Tokyo?
It’s mesmerising to watch the chef at Savoy make the same two pizzas over and over again. It must be how the Japanese make such amazing food – they perfect it through repeated practice.
Discovered this gem from a random cycling adventure. We walked down the stairs and found ourselves in a super local tonkatsu joint, where the patrons were mostly business men and tradies.
Buri standing sake bar
An Ebisu favourite, one of our friend’s favourite spots to take visitors. The sake jars ice up inside when you hit it repeatedly – still boggled at the science behind this.
I’m always down for DIY food and yakiniku falls under this category!
