More photos from Tokyo. Like I mentioned, we were only there for three days, so we tried to cram as much stuff in as possible. DO ALL THE TOKYO THINGS!¬†Cherry blossoms, ramen, sushi, izakaya, shopping, karaoke. A stop into Torikizoku, an izakaya from the Kansai region that’s always cheap and […]

Spring is the best time to be in Japan. There are cherry blossoms and nice weather and everyone is happy. How can you not be happy? Standing outside in the swirl of pink petals would cheer up the even the grumpiest of grumpy people. Japan loves cherry blossoms and it’s […]

I know I never finished any of my entries about Italy but well, Italy wasn’t as fun as Japan, so here’s more entries about Japan! Pretty timely (for once) too, considering I just got back last week. The Italy entries will remain lonely and cold in my Drafts folder for […]

I’m going to Tokyo again NEXT WEEK and I still have all these Japan posts from a zillion years ago. This one is just a quick post about a restaurant that’s fairly popular with tourists, Kaikaya in Shibuya. I’d heard it recommended several times and although the food was good, […]

I have a bunch of posts with photos that I just never got around to posting from Japan sitting in Drafts in WordPress. I’m going to try to finish posting them since some of them have been around for almost a YEAR. A YEAR! Writing all these words and captions […]

You may remember that last year, I posted approximately 8293482390482903482309423094 photos of cherry blossoms. But I couldn’t help it! They’re so beautiful! You’ll know what I mean if you’ve ever experienced sakura season in Japan yourself. And if you haven’t, you should. Everyone should see the cherry blossoms once in […]

So 2013 is almost over. I’m a bit sad to see it go, because my 2013 was pretty awesome. Here’s some of the stuff I did in 2013. Left Toronto and became a resident of Japan. Spent New Year’s eating osechi with Japanese neighbours. Tried all the delicious winter chu-hi […]

This is an entry of random food photos from Japan that I didn’t get around to posting anywhere else. Yay, random food! The thing in the photo above is some kind of amazing Japanese bread item — Japan has the best weird bread things — it’s a potato croquette inside […]

super awesome train museum

November 2nd, 2013 / by / in: travel / No responses

I think I left the Japan entries somewhere around Nagoya, so back to Nagoya we go! Besides the amazing Totoro house, we really wanted to go to the train museum in Nagoya. The museum is called the SCMaglev and Railway Park¬†in English, but that name is weird and unexciting, so […]
