    Duel with sumo wrestlers and eat chanko nabe in Asakusa show

    Duel with sumo wrestlers and eat chanko nabe in Asakusa show When I asked my nine year old what she wanted to do in Japan she wanted to see sumo. So this day out was much anticipated and turned out to exceed our expectations. It is held in quite a small venue which is tricky when fully booked but allows for a very friendly and "up close" encounter. The host is fluent in English so no tricky communication - there is a display of training and wrestling techniques by the former professional sumo wrestlers and then enough time for all guests to take on a sumo wrestler. These are big guys who tailor their approach to their opponent - lots of humour and theatrics with the kids and women - sometimes a bit more serious with the blokes who thought they could give it a red hot go with a real sumo - but always safe and controlled. Food is apparently the daily fare of sumo wrestlers so like a homecooked Japanese style stew. Simple and sustaining. A great day out.

    Visit a Japanese Home and Make Japanese Pizza!

    Visit a Japanese Home and Make Japanese Pizza! We had a real nice time preparing okonomiyaki. It was a great experience not only for learning how to make a Japanese dish, but for sharing time with Youko san, her friend (Youko-san too) and the guys (Takuya-kun and Yoshiki-kun). We prepare five delicious okonomiyaki and had some games in Japanes, Spanish and English.
    I felt very welcome at every moment, it was a incredibly fun. A highlight!
    If you're in Tokyo give yourself the chance to meet awesome people and make new friends.

    Sakura Cherry Blossoms Cruise with a glass of Rosé!

    Sakura Cherry Blossoms Cruise with a glass of Rosé! We boarded the last sakura dinner cruise for 2017. It was certainly an experience with excellent service provided by the boat service crew. They offered me juice when they noticed that I wasn't taking any of the alcoholic or soft drinks that are included as part of the cruise package. It was a nice gesture and speaks volumes of the Japanese service culture. As it was night time, I personally feel the afternoon cruise would have been much better. So this means another sakura cruise next year :)

    10% OFF Tour all the popular places in Tokyo with a local!

    10% OFF Tour all the popular places in Tokyo with a local! We had a lot of fun on our tour!

    I really liked our tour guide. We had a small group, just my husband and myself. We liked to learn about our tour guide and Japan itself. I think my favorite parts (that we plan to re visit later) were the Meiji Shrine for the nature, and Sensoji Temple for the festival-like atmosphere and souvenirs!

    We probably could have skipped Don Quixote, but we saw a Godzilla statue, so that was cool! Anyway, this tour was perfect. We learned so much!

    Thank you so much for the memories and experience! :)

    Sakura Cherry Blossoms Night Cruise on Sumida River Tokyo!

    Sakura Cherry Blossoms Night Cruise on Sumida River Tokyo! My sister and I were very disappointed with this cruise.
    When we boarded the boat we sat on the left side since the right side was full.
    I figured that once the boat turned around we would get a nice view of the trees and lights.
    That didn't happen. When the boat turned around it didn't go close enough to the shore to even see the pretty trees and lights. So basically we spent $50 per person to sit on a boat for 45 minutes and ate a bento box and drank a soda.
    I would have liked just walking down the river and looking up at the trees and lights.

    Cherry Blossom Tour – Half Day Sakura Highlights by Bus

    Cherry Blossom Tour – Half Day Sakura Highlights by Bus The tour was O.K - We went to 2 places for cherry blossom viewing : Asakusa and Hamarikyu Gardens. The tour guide was very helpful and informational.

    However the cherry blossoms in Asakusa were much better than Hamarikyu! .. They can replace Hamarikyu with better spots like Ueno Park or Imperial Palace! A bit disappointed there!

    An average experience for Me :-)
