“Turning Japanese”

published 06/05/2001

ProMany, a wonderful, cultural experience

ConsNone I can recall

I have recently returned from a work related trip to Asia, my first stop on the three-week trip was Tokyo. I have to say this was by far the best place I visited and I hope one day I will return. I had read a Rough Guide travel book and some Ciao ops to prepare me for what I expected to be a...

ConsDifficult for foreigners to understand the cultura...

Maneki-Neko, Japanese Beckoning Cats, can be found in the shop windows of stores and restaurants in countless streets of Tokyo and any other of Japan’s major cities. If you take a peep into the windows of the noodle shop, eateries of all types and stores, you will come across the Maneki...

“Satisfy your appetite”

ProNowhere is like this city

ConsLong flight from Europe

I love Japanese food. Eating out in Tokyo can be cheap, reasonable or expensive. Here are some tips from me for you to enjoy the city more without being able to speak or read Japanese.

ProCheap and pretty place

ConsOften fullly booked

- Occupying the 18th & 19th floors of a high building, you get a really superb panorama view of Tokyo. It can be seen even from the large window of your room. At night, the view is totally fabulous. Also available from bathroom, amazing! - This Youth Hostel is open to everyone. Tokyo propose...

Consexpensive, expensive, expensive

The last time I visited Tokyo was way back in 92 - a flying 3 week trip through Japan spending 7 days in the capital. Even though Tokyo is (was) a hugely expensive place to visit you simply must take in the sites at least once in your life. Tokyo is a heavily populated concrete jungle of a place...

ProGreat if you like fish

ConsVery expensive

The prices for food & drink in Tokyo make London seem like a 'discount store'! I stayed in Tokyo for 10 days and by the 3rd day was visiting McDonalds as this was the only reasonably priced 'restaurant'. However it is worth experiencing true Japanese meals unless you don't like fish. A typical...
