I had been eyeing Japanese knives since my first visit. So glad that I finally took the plunge and can finally call some of their ‘artwork’ my own. This little store was a TOTAL gem. As a cooking enthusiast, this store visit is an orgasmic must do in Kyoto.

I don’t understand why this place got categorised as a hostel. I mean, just look at it. The place was over 100 years old. The facilities and ambiance was excellent. Plain hardcore value for money!
I love tiny places 😀 I found this little home style store via reading a Japanese local paper. So glad that I persevered and found this place.

Madness! In short, this was an onsen theme park. That’s right, all different theme, type and sort of hot spring under ONE roof in the heart of Osaka. Technically, no one ever needed to leave if one had enough money. This place had a hotel, spa around the world, shopping […]
This restaurant had it all going. Ninja waitrons, Ninja receptionist, trap doors, magic scrolls, magic show, ninja themed food…
The weather was not working with me that day, but it did not diminish this beauty. Kairakuen is one of the official top 3 gardens of Japan. What criteria do they use to derive this? I do not know 😛 It is an official title though, Kairakuen is one of the Three […]
We stayed at Shiroganeya 白銀屋 in Shibu, Yudanaka. This was a smaller ryokan establishment in the area 😀 Let’s take a peep together?
