In my previous post I wrote about lining up for a bowl of Michelin star ramen. Today I lined up for some food again, but this time it was for a whole different reason. Not caring about the taste at all, today it was all about the shape of the food and the restaurant that was serving it: the Rilakkuma cafe. Continue reading “Rilakkuma Cafe”
Today I went to a ‘bake-your-own’ event at school again. This time we made okonomiyaki, a Japanese dish often called ‘a savoury pancake’ because of it’s shape. Continue reading “SnackTime / school events: okonomiyaki”
I haven’t been writing on my blog for a while, because I only have a few weeks left and so many things I still want to do, so writing kind of felt like wasting my time. But today I decided that it is also a waste of my blog if I don’t keep writing until the end of my stay in Japan. So from today I’ll try to post more often again, starting with today’s trip to the Cup Noodle Museum in Yokohama. Continue reading “Yokohama Cup Noodle fun”
Although the plum blossom was nice to see, the sakura season is still what everyone is waiting for. The sakura-forecast says that the cherry blossom in Tokyo will start to bloom on the 23th of March, being in full bloom roughly one week later.

Maybe I should just start calling this a food blog… The food here is just too delicious not to take pictures of. I loved the pumpkin curry (6th photo), having a great curry flavour, but not being too spicy. It even had some sweetness to it from the pumpkin.
Just some pictures of food again. On the last picture you can see a traditional Japanese obento (lunchbox), being served by women wearing a kimono in a really nice Japanese restaurant. A bit expensive for a lunch, but really nice to experience at least once. Continue reading “Everyone loves food – part 2”
If you are a food-lover (and I know some readers are) and happen to be in Tokyo someday, visiting Ikebukuro is a must. When arriving by JR train you don’t even have to leave the station, just get yourself to the basement floors. You can choose between the Seibu departmentstore basement (B1F) at the east exit, or the Tobu departmentstore basement (B2F) at the west exit of the station. Both departmentstores have a foodhall in their basement. Continue reading “A basement full of food”
