It’s worth to look into the museum’s program. One of the exhibitions is focussing on the famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando. As a big architecture fan, I had to check this exhibition out ASAP!

A neighborhood festival for children, families and friends: “Minato Citizens’ Festival 2017”

Minato Citizens' Festival

Last year, my friends and I visited the “Minato Citizens’ Festival” for the first time. We had a lot of fun there so we had to go again this year! “Minato Citizens’ Festival” is a big local festival in Tokyo. At the festival, you can experience Japanese culture and try dishes from countries all around the world. You are travelling with kids? Great! There are a lot of games and activities for children, too. So, let’s go!

Lunch on an open terrace and a magical treehouse – Shirokanedai Platinum Street


There are many nice places in Tokyo that you won’t find in any travel guide. One of them is “Shirokanedai”, an area with a lot of trees and a relaxed, calm atmosphere. Many people in Tokyo dream of living in this luxury residential area. Even though it isn’t affordable for most people to live there, going there for a nice lunch isn’t such a stretch. This time, I would like to introduce the popular “Shirokanedai Platinum Street” and some of its great lunch spots!

Harakiri Temple and Seppuku Sweets?


Thinking of Japan, you think of samurai and ninjas, of course! But is there still a place where one can still find traces of the samurai in modern Japan? The answer is yes! This time I would like to introduce you to the Sengakuji Temple and a certain Japanese candy. Why that? Well, I bet you’ll be surprised!
