Favorite airport lounge worldwide: ANA at Tokyo Narita airport

As I travel a lot, I see aplenty of lounges. Coming to this lounge the second time confirms my liking of it: A beer pouring machine (! – see https://vimeo.com/114758644 ). Fresh soba noodles! – and a ANA Boeing 787 in Star Wars Design. I hope to come again …

Rather than going up, we went to dinner at a nearby restaurant serving Teppan-Yaki. The meals shown are sea urchin (Seeigel), Abalone… Read More ›

American food in Tokyo: A hot dog for breakfast

As the Japanese eat warm food for breakfast, so did I. At a Tully’s shop, a hotdog with a twist (Avocado). Nice.

An evening walk in Asakusa, Tokyo

I have been there a few times already, but there are places you just cannot visit often enough. This is one of them.

Fantastic dinner in Tokyo “Asakusa Imahan”

Thanks to a local gentleman, we picked this restaurant (http://www.asakusaimahan.co.jp/english) and we were certainly not disappointed. We first took a quick tour of the Asakuso Temple, the off to the restaurant and ordering the Sukiyaki special (see second picture, to the right). Boy, what wonderful food… The meat is prepared in a pan in the middle… Read More ›
