Travel to Japan - reco - Page 6

post #76 of 79
Thread Starter 
Got back last week-end!

Wow! What a trip. Been waiting years and it went beyond all my expectations.

Nara and Kyoto filled the relax/zen traditional aspect of Japan and Tokyo blew me away with how crazy but calm at the same time it is.

Millions and millions of people and you feel safe, quiet and with the power of being who you want.
I'd really recommend the country to anyone!

Noteworthy places I ate/drunk : chihana in kyoto, amazing! The chef even came talk to us (well tried, english isn't their forte lol). 12 courses of awesome.
Sushisho in Tokyo. Wow, best sushi and sashimi ever. Can't ever beat this I guess....
Bar High Five. Went twice. Dude is amazing, especially if you like scotch.

Shopping: kyoto and tokyo were great. Spent $$$$$ (I guess I'll post some fit pic in the WAYWT thread).

We had 7 typhoons, one big earthquake (7.1?) but still had an amazing time! Makes me want to learn the language and try something there in my field of work.

Still can't really express how I felt, it's still inside, boiling.

For those interested, I'm slowly uploading pictures every day on my photo tumblr: www.commedesphotos.tumblr.com
There's a queue of pics lasting one week and a half. Right now it's at Kyoto but Nara is already up!

Almost a year after leaving Japan, I am feeling a real nostalgia for being there. I really loved that country.

 

A question: I am trying to find out if a particular store that I went to has a website. It was in the Yanaka Nippori market, so perhaps not. If anyone knows Yanaka, when you are headed to the market from the Nippori JR station, the road forks, and to the right is the big set of steps where the cats hang out. Either just before the fork or just before the steps on the left is a market that sells all manner of leathergoods (especially bags and belts and such), as well as some ceramicware, baskets, etc. I loved that place, and, after I left, asked my GF to go back and get me the thing I wanted the most -- a beautiful belt for an astounding $100. I would love to find that store. I would point it out on Google Maps streetview, but the car had to head down the side street since the market street is pedestrian-only.
