One of my favourite experiences of "Bar / Food Hopping in Tokyo was to see what "Otooshi" each place brought us when we arrived. This was my favourite. Trio of seasoned Cod Roe at a great hole in the wall with no English name unfortunately in Shinjiku

Hitachino Nest is probably my favourite Japanese beer so I was very excited to find a Hitachino Nest Beer Bar selling all varieties at Tokyo Station. They also served some great snacks to go with your drinks

One of my favourite experiences in Tokyo was walking around late food alleys like Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho filled with tiny "hole in the walls" all cooking various skewers, seafood and other snacks. These alleys were packed with people drinking beer and enjoying food until the early hours of the morning

On our last night in Tokyo we were recommended Nabezo for an all you can eat Shabu Shabu / Sukiyaki dinner. The all you can eat included delicious Japanese Beef and Pork, a Vegetable Buffet and Udon. They also have an all you can drink package with Sake and Sochu which we quickly agrees to 😁

Hey Daniel. If you have the chance and the budget, go have a life changing steak at aragawa. Without a doubt the best and most expensive piece of meat we've ever had. You get to inspect the birth certificate and family tree of the cow before you eat it. πŸ™Š

Meunière of Samegarei cooked with butter and flour with jus de vollaile and bearnaise sauce. Probably my favourite course of the night. The skin was so crispy and there was a lovely layer of fat under the skin which gave the fish an amazing flavour

Incredible dinner at HOSHINOYA having Chef Noriyuku Hamada's seasonal Nippon Cuisine tasting menu. They do not offer an a la carte menu and change their tasting menu seasonally. Here are some of the highlights:

This slightly torched seabream marinated in bonito broth was so fresh and tasty.

Incredible dinner at Michelin Starred restaurant Azure 45 last night at The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo! The views from the 45th floor were stunning and Chef Shintaro Miyazaki put a great tasting menu together for us with delicious wine pairings. Here were my top 3 dishes that we tried and my recommendations for you when you visit for yourselves.

#1 Scottish Blue Lobster with Mango and Pink Pepper. Perfectly cooked and the bouillabaisse sauce was out of this world!

Hi!!!

what is the best combination of solutions to move in tokyo? day tickets? or other? we will stay seven days in tokyo city. then we will go to Kyoto, according to you should purchase the japan rail pass? we should get from Kyoto to Narita Airport. I hope I explained myself. thank you (:
SHOW ALL 4 REPLIES >
Evan Lin 4 months ago
In Tokyo you can buy JR pass(750Β₯/day) or Metro pass (600Β₯/24h).Or you can buy Suica card then charge money and pay per journey.
If you only stay in Tokyo and Kyoto I don't subject to buy JR pass. It will be more expensive than buy single ticket from Tokyo to Kyoto .
Finally I don't understand what you mean from Kyoto to Narita airport which is in Tokyo
Gianluca Stanglino 4 months ago
Thank you for your answer . I think the jr pass costs the same as round-trip Tokyo Kyoto. from Kyoto I should get to the airport of Narita and I was wondering if there was a direct connection. I saw that round-trip Tokyo Kyoto costs like the jr pass. it's correct?

Have a nice day ;)

I've done Tokyo several times. It's good to have some Japanese hosts to show you around but also ok for a bit solo.

Yes Japan is top 3 safest countries in the world (the other two being South Korea and Singapore) πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜™. Very very safe to do solo travel to Japan and easy too 😊
