Costco in Japan and Karaage Lunch!

This was an awesome day out, and something that two of my Japanese friends and I had been planning since January! With conflicting work schedules, it was difficult to find a time when all three of us could get a whole day free, but this weekend, we finally made it out to the Costco inContinue reading “Costco in Japan and Karaage Lunch!”

Italian Course Lunch in Tokyo with New Friends

During my time in Japan, I have been volunteering as much as possible in the local area. It’s not only a way to have all sorts of experiences that I otherwise never would have had, but also, it’s been fantastic for making friends with Japanese people outside of my school. This has been the mostContinue reading “Italian Course Lunch in Tokyo with New Friends”

Coronavirus in Tokyo, Day 3: Sukiyaki, Spaghetti, and Baby Chicks

Not only have all classes been cancelled, but also, our work schedule has been shifted to avoid the commuter rush. Our work day for this month now officially starts at 10:30 AM. That means I have plenty of time in the morning. What did I decide to do with all this time, you ask? IContinue reading “Coronavirus in Tokyo, Day 3: Sukiyaki, Spaghetti, and Baby Chicks”

Tofu Course Meal in Tokyo

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I am meeting every week with two lovely Japanese ladies who want to practice their English. One time, we got into the topic of tofu, and I happened to mention that I love tofu. They then suggested that we go to a tofu restaurant that they had been toContinue reading “Tofu Course Meal in Tokyo”

Legendary Ramen in Tokyo

Yesterday evening, after English conversation with those two lovely Japanese ladies at our favorite cafe, I went for ramen! I had recently discovered that there was a Taishoken shop near my home, in Ogikubo. Taishoken is a legendary chain of ramen shops in Japan founded by Masayasu Sakaguchi in 1951. There’s even a full lengthContinue reading “Legendary Ramen in Tokyo”

Delicious Mapo Tofu & Ginger Pork in Tokyo

A couple weekends ago, I was exploring the Asagaya area in search of a Nepali shop that a friend had told me about. (I was in search of chapati and spices.) Along that route, I noticed an old restaurant that served teishoku (Japanese set meals) for as little as 660 yen, so I decided toContinue reading “Delicious Mapo Tofu & Ginger Pork in Tokyo”

Delicious Indian Restaurant, “Reka” in Tokyo

Earlier this month, I went out to Kasai, which takes me about an hour by train because it’s in a whole different area of Tokyo. I had known about this restaurant for quite some time, ever since Yogi Puranik was elected City Councillor of Edogawa. He was the first person of Indian origin to winContinue reading “Delicious Indian Restaurant, “Reka” in Tokyo”

Nepali-Indian Restaurant “Shiva” in Tokyo

I have discovered a fantastic Nepali-Indian restaurant in Asagaya, Tokyo. Almost all of the restaurants in Japan that serve Indian cuisine are actually run by Nepalis, and often, even if you ask for the spicy/hot option, it comes to you mild and sweet. The rice is usually Japanese or American rice, and sometimes they evenContinue reading “Nepali-Indian Restaurant “Shiva” in Tokyo”

Warm and Homey Dinner in Tokyo

Last night, I went shopping at my usual supermarket. On the way back home, I noticed a little homely restaurant that I had never even noticed before. I peered in, envious of the couple dining there, thinking that it was way out of my budget. However, after reading over the chalkboard menu outside, I wasContinue reading “Warm and Homey Dinner in Tokyo”
