Day 8 : Tokyo Skytree

· Fashion, Food, Illustration, Travel

The early bird catches the worm! Today, we rose early again (but not as early as for the Tsukiji market!) to be there at 8 am, for the opening hour of the SkyTree, the great Tokyo observation tower. Before anything else, it is a radio/tv broadcasting station (like the Eiffel Tower), built in 2011. It … Read more

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

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

I had promised you a post with the yummy addresses of Val d’Isère, so here we are! Vacations in the mountains are inevitably linked to good food, and what follows proves my point! MAISON CHEVALLOT  (Avenue Olympique) Before we left for Val D’Isère, I did a little “must-eat” research, and I found this bakery/pastry shop: … Read more

Delicious Ghent

· Food, Illustration, Travel

Let’s wrap up our tour of Ghent with the food talk! As one of you said, belgian gastronomy ultimately comes down to the two best foods there can be: Fries and chocolate. Very true, but that’s not all there is to it. Indeed, during the weekend, I discovered a number of other delicious belgian specialties! … Read more

Antwerp delicacies

As promised, I’m back from Antwerp with lots of great food places! Thanks to Kika_p for the great tips on Instagram! FRITUUR N°1 (Hoogstraat, 1)  it seems it was ordained (or maybe – with a name like that – it self-ordained) the best fries in Anvers. So yes, they’re good, warm, with a choice of … Read more

If you’re eating in San Francisco…♫

· Food, Illustration, Travel

These USA vacations were fatal to my thighs: I ate all the time, and, of course, it wasn’t all light. And I’m actually wondering how I would manage to keep my weight from skyrocketing if I lived there: everything is calculated for you to be always consuming more. Waiters that fill your glass everytime it … Read more

Sanukiya’s udons

· Food, Illustration

I think it has been quiiiite a long time since I shared a yummy parisian address here (since February, I just checked!). Of course it’s nice finding places abroad, but I’m far from having discovered all the good ones around here! So here it is today, a favorite japanese address of mine, found, once again, … Read more
