if you look for something very traditional to do you need to visit a hot spring. its perfect to arrive in the afternoon spend a night and leave next morning. you go back to busy tokyo as a new person. place we went was called tsubaki and was by the sea one and half hour drive from tokyo by car. there’s also bullet train option. food there was nothing for “western sushi” lovers. this is a proper japanese stuff where you have no clue what you eating because the lady serving your food speaks english with the strongest japanese accent so her explanation leaves a lot of room for your imagination.
so what you think this could be? thats how the dinner starts. cherry blossom branch always present.
this was sashimi for my 3 years old son means that this is the least advanced dish of the whole dinner.
all i can say this was a delicious soup
little tv watching before bed (tatami)
and here is the first course of breakfast which ended up having almost as many courses as dinner that night before
last dip in the onsen and home we go
this is not much of a food post but it’s been a while since i left japan and i miss everything about it. how do they manage to make everything look pleasant and stylish?
tokyo in all its beauty
messages on wooden planks in the meiji shrine
i love how the most delicious sushi is shaped totally uneven
very organised roads
even no smoking sign looks nice
and loads of sake
