Capsule Hotel

After seeing Mt.Fuji, I decided I wanted to see Tokyo again on my own for a few days. And I decided to stay in a capsule hotel, I booked in advance which is apparently not really normal, because most people who use capsule hotels use them when they’ve missed the last train after a night drinking! 163 more words


Mt. Fuji (Lake Kawaguchiko)

We wanted to see Mt.Fuji before we left Japan, so we decideded to go for a few days to the lakeside town of Kawaguchiko. The first two days we stayed, we weren’t actually able to see Mt.Fuji because it was so cloudy (!!), but then on the morning we were leaving, we got a beautiful view of it from the station! 78 more words

I have been a big fan of Sushi.

Before going to a veg, I used to order especially Anago (sea eel), Engawa (fluke fin of flatfish), Aji (horse mackerel), and Uni (sea urchin) as Nigiri at proper sushi bars. 289 more words
