His/Her advice for you

Must-see :

The great atmosphere of a night in an izakaya, these small bars and restaurants where you can order and share small dishes. The less known neighborhoods of Yanaka and Shibamata for a glimpse of the old Tokyo.

To bring back with you :

A Daruma doll, a traditional Japanese lucky doll, Yuzu products (sweets, salt, tea...), a bento box and its accessories to prepare a beautiful and good takeaway meal.

Things to do :

The Mori Art Museum observatory in Roppongi Hills in the late afternoon, to see Tokyo at nightfall, wander in the shops like Tokyu Hands and Loft in Shibuya, a picnic in the garden of Shinjuku Gyoenmae.

Words to Know :

« Oishi katta » ! « That was delicious ». A simple phrase to thank the cook and his team after a good meal.

Dishes to Try :

Onigiri, these small triangular white rice balls wrapped in nori seaweed. Commonly stuffed with raw fish and other salty or sour Japanese specialties, they are perfect to eat on the go... without moderation.

Traps to avoid :

Getting lost when taking a random exit in the subway. Some stations, such as Shinjuku or Shibuya, are so big that you had better take a look at the map to find the best exit. It will save you valuable time.
