My 10 Go-To spots in Tokyo

· Food, Illustration, Travel

Last April As You Like magazine asked me to share my 10 go-to spots in Tokyo and create an illustrated map for the Spring issue dedicated to Asia.

I love drawing maps, food and small details: it’s a time consuming job but it’s really something I like doing when I have time.

 

10 spots in Tokyo

I thought it would be a nice idea to share it on the blog, especially for those who didn’t get the chance to get the magazine.

I decided to update it (because I changed my haircut!) and animate it exclusively for the blog. I hope you will like it and it will give you ideas for your future trip to Japan. So here are the addresses (you may already know a few if you follow my blog!):

 

1. STEAKHOUSE NOBU : Next time I will be back in Tokyo, I hope I will be able to visit this cute Japanese couple, owner of this unpretentious place but who serve delicious omurice (omelette with rice) and grill plancha. (Details here & here)

2. NAMCO NAMJATOWN : The entertainment park dedicated to food, with super kawaii ice creams and where we can also discover strange flavours: can you take up the challenge to try wasabi, curry or oyster flavour?? (Details here)

3. SPA DE L’HÔTEL ANDAZ : An exceptional place to relax with personalised treatment and Tokyo tower view. (Details here)

4. DOVER STREET MARKET GINZA :The perfect place to discover the huge collection of the Comme des garçons brand and get a few souvenirs (striped shirt or shoes) ! (Details here)

5. KYUKYODO : Traditional Japanese stationary store for anyone crazy about origami papers and sophisticated greeting cards. (Details here)

6. GYOZARO :Delicious gyoza at unbeatable prices ! (Details here)

7. KAWAII MONSTER CAFE : Rainbow colours ice creams to enjoy in 4 different rooms (ambiances) and to reveal your inner unicorn.

8. SATURDAYS NYC : Surfer shop where you can also enjoy a cafe on a rooftop terrace.

9. LOG ROAD DAIKANYAMA : Nice pedestrian alley with concept stores, bakery, bar and shop to buy generous and colourful donuts.

10. NAKA MEGURO : neighbourhood to watch cherry blossoms during spring season day and night (with lanterns)

    Le Japon est LE pays qui m’a toujours fait rêver et où j’espère vraiment avoir la chance d’aller un jour, assez longtemps pour m’imprégner de l’ambiance et de l’esprit du pays et de ses habitants 🙂
    Cette carte est super intéressante et fournie, je la garde sous la main pour le jour J !
