Nihongo o decimas

A travel blog entry by kevinandjoan


... showed us pictures of vegetable food but we couldn't confirm what the stock was made of. We decided to leave.
Walking down the street we had a conversation about being vegetarian in Japan where one can't read the menu. Joan said it was quite limiting as you had to ensure what was in food before you ate, whereas meat eaters could just point at anything and hope it was OK. Kevin argued conversely that ...

... the free champagne . It was very cool!

Our first day was spent dodging the rain by visiting the National Museum and checking out Katanas, Kimonos and Samurai armour. In between the heavy showers we managed to check out the new Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest structure in Tokyo at over 600m in total height. The public viewing platforms don't open until the end of May but we could at least get the view from the ...

The Homestretch

A travel blog entry by helenandjohn88


... down the main street again to see it lit up at night, and then retreated to the hostel for the rest of the evening.

On Monday we got up at 6.45am to get ready for the Tsukiji Fish Market.

... when we left, she was soo nice and helped pick stuff out for me. Our last meal we went to a sorta authentic japanese place where you sit on the ground. It was pretty cool and we wondered why shoji never took us to a place like this before. The food was really good and we ate family style, trying everything. We also had unlimited drinks for 2hrs. We had those waiters working super hard for us as you can imagine haha. It didnt end up costing us a whole lot. less than ...

Tokyo #1

A travel blog entry by bassalleckj


... cost us nearly $100 each to go into Tokyo for the day. Unfortunately, it was a very rainy day. That seems to happen almost every time I go to Tokyo. It’s not a horrible, driving rain with wind, but it does get to you after awhile, with dreary grey skies, poor visibility, and wrestling with an umbrella, quite the challenge when walking down busy sidewalks with everyone else carrying umbrellas as well. And as some of you may remember from my earlier blog, being from the desert, ...

This place is standard on almost all accounts but stands out positivly in a number of ways. The staff is extremly helpful and good company, the price is reasonable for the dorms + You get a free drink when you check in! A good kitchen and a roomy bar altso makes it a satisfactory stay. Not much more to say really, you get what you pay for and you might even get a smile out of it! =)
