I have tried "oyster ramen" in Kushiro and it was amazing. I lost the picture so I cannot show you, but there were about 10 or 15 pieces of oyster as toppings! The soup was simple and the color was clear. You can see the pictures at this review site. https://tabelog.com/en/hokkaido/A0112/A011201/...
There is a Hokkaido antenna shop in Ginza, near Yurakucho Station. It's called "Dosanko Plaza" (どさんこプラザ)http://www.dosanko-plaza.jp/shop/(The one on the top of the list)Another branch of Dosanko Plaza is in Ikebukuro. But I'm not sure they sell the pudding balls regularly. I have heard that Dosan...
I like Gontran Cherrier. They have shops in Shinjuku, Shibuya, Nihonbashi, etc. Their croissant is the best!http://gontran-cherrier.jp/Dominique Ansel Bakery is also very popular now in Tokyo. They have many unique breads such as the shape of Onigiri (rice ball)http://dominiqueanseljapan.com/Anot...
I would say Sukiyabashi Jiro is the one you need to visit while you are visiting Japan! It is hard to make a reservation, but it's worth paying money for it!
My German friend who is food photographer andrecommended "Ecole Levain D'antan" near Roppongi (http://ecole.landemaine.me/about/company#com04). He said the restaurant in Paris offer their bread. In case, you're not stick to Japanese one.
Maybe you go to SAPPORO,you can see namy ramen resutaurant. You can eat sapporo-ramen there.Sapporo-ramen is based on miso soup.If you will go to HAKODATE,you can eat hakodate-ramen,too. Faimous hakodate-ramen is based on salts soup.Both are delicios.
To explore Nikko is to discover beauty. Have this mountain town enchant you with its gorgeous scenery, intriguing heritage sites, and cultural experiences.
There are so many concerts and lives are held. You better choose the city and find the concert information.I personally think that Tokyo is the adequate place to find cool and noisy punk show!
I would recommend taking the shuttle bus to the Busta Shinjuku. Then change the bus to the Mt.Fuji area. I believe that it is most simple and cheapest way to get Mt.Fuji from Narita.
Sakura cherry blossom must be beautiful in Hokkaido at the end of April to early May. Hokkaido Jungu Shrine in Sapporo has beautiful sakura cherry blossom tree and plum trees. Goryokaku in Hakodate gets all pink when cherry blossom flowers are in bloom.
I liked Daiki's shoyu ramen ;PDaiki is in Yushima, near Ueno and Akihabara.Recommendations by Hub Japan are listed here:https://hubjapan.io/articles/15-best-ramen-in-tokyo-enjoy-japans-world-famous-noodles
I would like to know one! lolProbably massages in hotels or ryokans have good qualities.
If you like whiskey, try visiting one of weste n style authentic bars in Tokyo. You will be able to try Japanese whiskeys more than Hibiki or Yamasaki. Omoide Yokocho and Golden Gai have great nostalgic atmosphere but maybe too touristic.
Cat Cafe Calico should be the most famous cat cafe in Shinjuku area. It's one of the most famous cafe throughout Tokyo as well.They accept reservation only through telephone. http://www.catcafe.jp/shop_shinjyuku.html
If you like birds,you shold go "tori no iru cafe " in Asakusa.There, you can see parakeets, owls、parrots . You can touch and feed them. And you can play with them .
I am not sure if my answer is Secret. .There are many kinds of food in Tokyo.There are many Tokyo-like Japanese food, but also food from all parts of Japan gather in Tokyo.Since you are coming to Japan, why not try many kinds of food?For example, sushi, soba, noodles, eels, bowls.I think that the...
How about going to a Izakaya or going to the authentic bar?
Kamakura is well known for temples, shrines, etc. While you're here, be sure to try best local food at these restaurants in Kamakura and Enoshima.
Maybe mountains and hiking? Tokyo is considered to be a city, but there are a lot of nature in the west part. Mt.Takao and Okutama hiking trail are must visit places if you enjoy being in nature :)
I think that are At home cafe or Maidorimin. Both seem like most popular maid cafes.
