TADAO ANDO: ENDEAVORS

10 years have passed since the “National Art Center, Tokyo” in Roppongi has opened its doors. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, the museum has a lot of spectacular special exhibitions going on. 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

Shirokanedai

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?

Seppuku-Monaka

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!
