Japan trip – Tokyo

Hi all,

Yes I have been on a blogging hiatus because of my holiday and I have enjoyed just being able to see so many things and eat so many things and just enjoy it. Now that I’m back I will be able to blog again and share some of my Tokyo photos.

We stayed one week in Tokyo and it was awesome. I love Japanese food people and culture so even with limited Japanese you should be able to get around as Japanese people are really willing to help you if need be.

We went to Tsukiji markets and had really fresh sashimi.

I love how you can get anything from a vending machine. These machines are everywhere.

We had to try the Katsudon here – Pork chop crumbed with udon noodles

We also headed to Disney sea and look at these cute toy story mochi sweets! They are adorable

We also went to the famous Asakusa – very touristy as you can see the sea of people.

This was my friend’s favourite food – Taiyaki – It has a crispy wafer like outside but inside there are different fillings you can choose from – custard, red bean taro and it’s delish!

Also Japan has the cutest dogs! All the puppies in the window are sooo cute and small.

We also had to try the Harajuku crepes. They are crepes with lots of different fillings – ice cream, cake, cream

And on the weekends some of the girls get dressed up as you can see with this pink girl here.

Ever wondered what Wasabi looks like – here you go!

Japanese

Hi all,

I will be going to Japan in about 6 months time but that is not stopping me on chowing down on Japanese food.

I went with a friend to an alley in the city that was very popular. People were lining outside the store since lunchtime.

I had the bento – the sushi was so fresh – it was authentically made from a Japanese chef.

My friend had the sashimi bowl and the sashimi looked really fresh.

Today is Anzac day! So three day weekend. My sis made anzac day cookies! We need to have more three day weekends 🙂

Have a happy weekend!

Wedding weekend

Hi all,

This weekend I went to my friend’s wedding dinner. We had it at a korean restaurant and the vibe was really good and the food was delicious not to mention the service was exceptional. We all had the banquet. Food pics start now 😉

Sashimi

We had a sashimi entree and the flavours were fusion western/korean. We also had lots of grilled meat on a hot plate.

Dessert

Topped it off with these awesome black sesame icecream dessert and I loved the idea that they had smeared chocolate round the sides of the cup!

Blue cupcake

The bride and groom had prepared cupcakes for all 🙂 Theme was blue 🙂

Overall, it was a lovely night 🙂 Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Japanese Zen

Hi all,

I loove Japanese food! So for my birthday of course I had to go eat some 🙂 We went to a place called Zen. It feels pretty authentic and we had a room to ourselves. We ordered the Kaiseki bento which came with tempura, sashimi, teriyaki and a salad plus miso and sesame icecream.

  

Love the decor of this place 🙂 They have bamboo shades as a door too 🙂

  

I’m in love when I see sashimi and tempura 🙂

Especially when you finish it with ice cream which was so delish – it was sesame ice cream and normally I have black sesame or green tea but this was sooo good 🙂

Happy Wednesday everyone!
