Nakameguro, A Riverside Town

Along the Meguro River, there are small, individually owned restaurants and shops in the town of Nakameguro, near Ebisu.  You can get there on the Hibiya subway line or Tokyu Toyoko Line. During the daytime, it is a nice walking trail.  There are cozy cafes, shops, beauty salons and a park along the river to look around. In the…


I visited Daikannyama with my family to have a walk around. It is a town near Shibuya and is a popular residential area, but it is also nice for those who don’t live there to just visit and enjoy walking around like we did.  The residential area is quiet and homey. It’s the perfect place…

Odaiba is probably one of everyone’s favourite spots, especially on holidays.


I have a lot of good memories from my childhood in Ginza.  Walking around Ginza on a lovely day is amazing.

Roppongi Hills

Ladies get a 50% off discount at the cinema on Wednesdays.  That’s not the only good thing about Roppongi Hills.  It is a great place to hang around for good food, shopping and a exceptional view of Tokyo. It will cost you 1500 yen to go up to the observatory but trust me it’s really…


My hometown Shinjuku has a lot to offer. A must go place for sure.


My great uncle used to own a clothing shop in Shibuya when I was little. It got bought and became a building called Shibuya 109. Now when I walk around I feel like the past 40 years had passed by in a second.
