Greetings from Tokyo! I was there for Halloween and saw the madness of Japanese gouls, rainbow coloured costumes and ant-liked crowded streets.
There is a new Chabad-Lubavich in Tokyo. Planned to attend a Saturday Kiddish service.
I stayed in Chuo-Ku, near the Tsukiji Fish Market. There is a brand new luxury apartment building called ‘The Tokyo Towers’, the home for the past weekend. It’s been awhile since I visited Tokyo and the yearning came up so just had to do something about it….
Took lots of time to explore the food culture. The above bowl of ramen was from a shop outside the JR Yoyogi Train Station. The eggs were perfectly cooked with the yolk still watery….. Yum. OK, so I broke kosher rules and had pork ramen in pork broth. The seaweed was crispy and the ‘healthy’ portion of the meal. This was so yummy my taste buds were thanking me afterwards, maybe not my muscles.
Over the course of the semi-long weekend, I walked over 25 KM, a first for me in Tokyo! Walking is so healthy and a conscious activity for your mind, body and soul. I highly recommend walking more if you could!
This here is the Rokuien Gardens in northern Tokyo. I took a morning walking and relaxing here. It was such a relaxing trip. Saw many ducks and giant goldfish!
Last but not least, a trip to Japan would not be complete without sushi!
It was a great weekend getaway! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵
