Jetlagged and tired on day one in Tokyo, I distracted myself from sleep by walking through Harajuku.
As I will have four weeks of vacation in June, I decided to go back to Japan for two of those weeks. I will be leaving in 4 days and stay there until the 19th of June. Here what I have planned for this trip, so far.
Monk is the name of a small restaurant right next to the Philosopher’s Path in the northern Higashiyama district of Kyoto. It’s the place where I had one of the best dinners of my life.
The Nezu-Museum in Tokyo’s Omotesando neighbourhood quickly became one of my highlights in Tokyo. The architecture by Kengo Kuma is flawless. But it was the extensive garden in the middle of Tokyo that took my breath away.
Yanaka is one of the “old” Shitamachi neighbourhoods of Tokyo. It’s full of traditional wooden houses, temples and shrines. But you will also find many beautiful craft stores, cafés and bars. Join me on a little tour through Yanaka.
