Day 7 : Tsukiji market, Meiji & Yoyogi

· Illustration, Travel

Wake up! Because, if I tell you that on the seventh day we woke up at 2:30 am (got to bed at midnight FYI) to go to the auction of Tsukiji’s fish market, you think we are: Brave/ Crazy? (Delete as appropriate). When I think about it now I think the answer is yes indeed… … Read more

Day 6 : Odaiba お台場

· Fashion, Illustration, Travel

Odaiba is a large artificial island located in the Tokyo bay area. Getting there already makes you feel like you somehow wound up in the future, because you need to take the Yurikamome metro line, that works without a driver. If possible, make your way to the seats up front – using lightsaber power if … Read more

Day 5 : Food wanderings in Omotesando

· Food, Illustration, Travel

Rain ? Again ?!! To reassure you, if I am not mistaken, I think it is the last rainy day that I had to “endure” in Japan, which suggests more interesting days of visits coming up. As it is raining, I present you all my addresses and food experience in the neighborhood of Omotesando and … Read more

New Balance

· Fashion

A little interlude in the middle of our japanese travels. I talked about an obsession regarding New Balance sneakers during my journey. I was seeing them everywhere and on everyone. And my brain of course, receiving these numerous visual stimuli, was completely and utterly influenced: I decided I had to find a pair of grey … Read more

Day 4 : Ueno park

· Fashion, Illustration, Travel

The sun has finally decided to show up! So we seized that moment to visit another of Tokyo’s parks where the Hanami is more than actively taking place: the Ueno Park. The festive mood was present with a crowd of Tokyoites picnicking along the alleys of the park. Many food stands offers dishes that are … Read more

Day 3 : Omotesando & Harajuku

· Fashion, Illustration, Travel

The 3rd day was a rainy one, which implied being particularly strategic: the 3rd day was hence declared Shopping day. Those two neighboring neighborhoods are ones I know well, since I almost went nuts in their shops back in 2007. This year, my shopping fever was somewhat less intense (although…). Maturity no doubt … (says … Read more

Day 2 : Namco Namjatown

· Food, Illustration, Travel

As I told some readers, we have organised the planning of our visits according to the weather. As it turns out, it was raining the second day, meaning we needed to find an indoor visit. We decided we would go to the Namco Namjatown Park, which is inside the Sunshine City building in Ikebukuro: it … Read more

Day 1 : Sumida Park & Asakusa

· Food, Illustration, Travel

Let’s visit Tokyo! We wanted to start slow, and especially wanted to enjoy the cherry blossoms (a custom called “hanami”), which brought us two steps from where we were staying, in the Sumida park. It’s right by a river of the same name: you can take a river boat and admire the blossoms while drifting … Read more

Our apartment-hotel in Tokyo

· Food, Illustration, Travel

As I have decided that I would share my whole trip to Japan with you, I must begin by a presentation of the place we stayed in when we were in Tokyo! Instead of choosing Shinjuku’s or Shibuya’s heady turmoil, we chose the (relative) tranquility of the Asakusa area. Due to its gorgeous Senso-ji temple, … Read more
