A Tokyo meal delivered the traditional way

Modern delivery motorbikes or more old-school Honda Super Cubs are the standard method these days for quickly, and efficiently, transporting meals around the capital. Now and again, however, it is still possible to see how things used to be done.

One of These Nights in Rio

I’m getting antsy because it’s 6:30 p.m. and I haven’t accomplished anything yet today. Well, technically, I did—we packed, checked out of the hotel in Florianópolis, took a taxi to the airport, queued at the GOL check-in counter to get boarding passes, weighted our checked baggage at the self-service kiosk and pay for them (it’s 60 reais if you do it yourself but 120 reais if you do it at the counter) then queued again to drop off the two backpacks now properly tagged. We waited at the very cro...

Japan's New 'Sayonara' Tax on Travelers Is Here

Thanks to a bevy of flight deals and new routes, it's now easier than ever to get to Japan — but it also just got slightly more expensive to leave the country once you've had your fill of Tokyo sushi, Okinawa beaches, and Kyoto temples. On Monday, the country began collecting a "sayonara" tax from visitors. The new fee of ¥1,000 ($9.23) will be tacked onto plane and ship transportation fares of all passengers when booking, regardless of nationality.

Rhum Bar 1802 and MASHA Restaurant

In my younger days, I was a full out disco king, going out to clubs like Studio 54 or Area in New York almost every night of the week. Strutting my best moves on the dance floor, I was stiff competition for John Travolta aka Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever.   Nowadays, I don’t go out much anymore at night except to have dinner at restaurants. I’ve put my platform disco shoes, shiny shirts unbuttoned practically to the waist, and bell bottom pants into storage and now wear furry slippe...

Eating raw chicken sashimi in Tokyo

When it comes to eating sashimi in Tokyo, fish is by far the most ubiquitous offer. But it’s not the only one. Restaurants also serve shikasashi (deer), basashi (horse), and — perhaps most hotly debated of all — torisashi (chicken). The name loosely translates to “raw bird,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like: thinly sliced raw chicken breast served with a flavorful salt or sauce. I never thought I’d order raw chicken sashimi-style. Like most Americans, I grew up deeply terrified of salmon...

Reptile bar in Tokyo

If you’re sick of the traditional bar scene, Tokyo’s Bar Yatonokami might be the change you’ve been looking for. Just west of Tokyo’s city center, this bar’s aesthetic resembles a shady club, with blue fluorescent lights, pictures of reptiles covering the walls, and an attic-like second-floor location. When you open the door, you’ll be greeted by rows of reptile terrariums, home to over 100 creatures. 本日もオープン夜刀神! 雰囲気は変わってきましたが相変わらず、よくわからないモニター脱皮中で汚いけれどご愛嬌 ……なんだろ、これ

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

January 1, 2019 in São Paulo

The sun was shining, the city sounded dead quiet and we didn’t need hangover remedies since we only had half a glass of a mini bottle of cheap champagne bought for 9.90 reais ($2.55) at the 24-hour Extra supermercado on New Year’s Eve—don’t ever ask me to bring wine to your party, I make terrible choices. The day was starting well—or rather, the afternoon was considering we all went to bed very late and got up at noon. We already knew tudo estará fechado because all when there’s a holiday, every...

Venice Will Start Charging an Entrance Fee to Day-Trippers to Combat Overtourism Skift A measure in Italy’s 2019 budget law will allow the local government in Venice to charge day-trippers for access to the city’s historic center as a way to help defray the considerable costs of maintaining a popular tourist destination built on water, the mayor said.

“How long do we have to wait?” “Ninety minutes.” “WHAT? I can’t do that!” “Well, I hope you can because we don’t really have the choice. First, it’s a bit of an old tradition that the new year starts at midnight, second we’re kind of stuck in a crowd of 1.7 million people.” “My tummy hurts. I really need food right now.” “How is that possible? You had one of these Tokyo bowls with rice and beef just two hours ago!

A selection of my favourite photographs from 2018

With another year rapidly nearing its end, it’s time once again to select my favourite photographs from the past 12 months. In a world that all too often can seem full of nothing but dishonesty, chaos and a complete lack of empathy, photography has once again been a personal saviour. The simple process of heading out and seeing what happens remains a constant source of both joy, and contentment. It’s also a key factor in my desire to find interesting new places in Tokyo, as well as Japan in gene...

Three Days in São Paulo, South America’s Largest City

At the airport, we stood by the same carousel that never delivered our backpacks three years ago. This time, they showed up almost right away and we breathed a sigh of relief. It was hot in the airport arrival hall and even hotter outside—35⁰C according to the many digital boards displaying the temperature and local time. I was surprised because São Paulo tends to be cooler than many other Brazilian cities and very unpredictable weather-wise. The first thing you’ll notice during the 40-minute ta...
