- I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
8bit cafe is a tiny cafe/bar in Shinjuku's very famous Golden Gai area. The cafe serves, of course, good drinks and some finger food, but its claim to fame is the panoply of vintage game consoles you can come play with. It'll take you right back to childhood!

Kyubey is said to be one of the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo. While in Tokyo, I bet you want to eat all the sushi before you head back home. And of course, there are tons of types to choose from, such as the cheap conveyor belt type of sushi, or the standing type of sushi. But while you're here, you should splurge at least once and try la creme de la creme, Kyubey in Ginza!

Ebisu is a chic neighborhood in Tokyo with many exquisite restaurants (sushi, French, etc.). It is also famous for its garden place, which is lit up during Christmas time. But, Ebisu is also famous for Ebisu yokocho; a down-to-earth, lively and fun place to have a drink and a bite to eat... for cheap! I would say your Japanese experience isn't complete without having visiting Ebisu Yokocho at least once!
Omen is a lovely traditional restaurant in Kyoto which serves the best homemade udon noodles you've ever had. While in Kyoto, you need to stop here at least once for a uniquely Japanese experience. Victim to its own popularity, it might be necessary to wait in line to get a seat at this lovely resto.
