Tokyo Travelogue: A Day Of Eating!

Tokyo Travelogue: Makan Edition

No Tokyo travelogue will do without food. Food is probably the most essential of a trip I would say, especially when you’re travelling in Japan!

So I’ve spent a day in Tokyo eating to my heart’s fill before spending the night at Tokyo Tower enjoying the night view~

Tsukiji Fish Market

Need I say more about anything on Tsukiji Fish Market? It’s the place to go to for fresh sashimi and sushi! And what’s better than starting the day with an awesome Sushi breakfast? Tsukiji Fish Market was scheduled to move in Nov 2016 but plans were delayed until winter season in 2017/2018 earliest! So I say, plan your trips there soon! You never know when they might decide to bring forward the move date!

Other than fresh fish, you can find dried goods store around the market where you can get those Dried Hotate for souvenirs! Fresh fruits can be seen in the market too!

And not forgetting the Tamagoyaki! This is a must try!

Grilled Hotate! Fresh and juicy!! Need I say more?

End your Tsukiji trip with a soft serve and you can never go wrong with Matcha when in Japan! (^.^)/

Just follow the crowd from Tsukiji Train station and you find your way to the fish market! You should be safe as long as you pass by Tsukiji Hongan-ji~

Pablo Cafe Omotesando 

Other than Baked, Pablo would be the other famous Cheese tart from Japan. Since I’m in Omotesando, how can I miss the opportunity to visit the cafe right? There will be a slight queue for dining in at the cafe at level 2, so do take note of that.

Ordered their original cheese tart served warm. It comes with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream which makes it more delish! I really love how fluffy the cheese tart is. It literally melts in your mouth! Prefer this over Baked personally and can’t wait for them to have an outlet in Singapore.

Luke’s Lobster Omotesando 

tokyo travelogue luke lobster

I first knew of Luke’s Lobster from a friend’s Instagram post and I tell myself I need to try it out when I’m in Tokyo.

I reached Luke’s Lobster around late afternoon 4.30pm and sadly they have sold out of their famous Lobster roll!! (>~<)/ But since we’re there, I’ve decided to try out their other options which is the Shrimp and Crab roll. I love how they have half and half option so we can try out two flavours in one roll! Though I must say that I wished I have gone straight for the Crab roll option because that is so good! The bread is warm and soft and oh so fragrant! I shared one roll with my mum as we both had quite a lot to eat already but I dare say I could finish one whole roll myself!

If you want to try out their signature Lobster roll, would definitely recommend you to visit earlier in the day! And I must say, I’m so loving the peaceful and vibrant vibe of Omotesando. Just sitting by Luke’s Lobster enjoying my roll and people watch. That is a lifestyle to look forward to. (^.^)/

Tokyo Luxey Meet Up

GRPPIC
(Hiromi san from Tokyo Luxey and Candy, fellow beauty blogger)

I’ve attended a meet up organized by Tokyo Luxey sometime last week and had an enjoyable time learning more about Tokyo Luxey and their mission to bring Japanese brands to all around Asia.

MAEDASAN
(Maeda san from Tokyo Luxey sharing about the various products.)

The lovely ladies from Tokyo Luxey have been flying around Asia to share about Japanese brands and I can see that they are passionate about it. During the session, Maeda san shared with us brands and products that are highly recommended by them. We also discussed about the kind of products we would like to have in Singapore.

TRIALPRODS

Of course, no sharing session is to go without testing out the products. I’m loving the casing of the 24H Cosme foundation! Cho Kawaii! (Cute packaging never fails to capture my heart.)

LUXEGOODIES

Here’s the products I’ve received for sampling. These are mainly the products that are recommended by Maeda san. Now I can try in depth for myself to know if these products are really as good. I’m also liking how the brands are looking for both good and bad reviews. Reviews of these products will be posted separately after I try them out! Do let me know if you want me to review any product first!

Are you interested to be part of the Tokyo Luxey community to try and learn more about Japanese brands and products?

HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO

Have you checked out the HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO pop up store located at the main atrium of Plaza Singapura yet? If not, do check it out before it ends on the 10th March which means two more days!!

A blend of fashion and culture, HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO brings you brands available only in Japan. If you love Japanese fashion like me, you can’t miss this.

Special collaborations with the popular Hello Kitty can be seen in the form of nail stickers. Nail stickers in many fashionable designs are available at affordable prices. Do check them out!

Unique fashion pieces only available in Japan now readily available on our shores, though for a limited period of time.

Specially for the show in Singapore, we have Hello Kitty Nissin Noddles in Chilli Crab flavour, at $2.50 each. These are limited edition, have you gotten yours yet?

Are you an avid Pokemon fan like me? Though nothing like what we have seen from the animes, this figure of Pikachu modeled after a real rat is worth a look.

Or perhaps, you could head down to get one of those limited tote bags (available for purchase) for HELLO,SHIBUYA TOKYO. I think the design is simple and chic.

HELLO, SHIBUYA TOKYO is located at the Main Atrium of Plaza Singapura. Last day of the pop up store is on 10th March. Do pay it a visit before it ends!

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia.
