Modern Passover dinners in the US

American Jewish cuisine has long been created through fusion. As long as they’ve been wandering the diaspora, Jewish immigrants from all over the world have reimagined traditional dishes wherever they are, incorporating tastes and religious dietary laws with the ingredients at hand. They’ve made fans of gentiles along the way with dishes like pastrami sandwiches, challah french toast, and all manner of stuffed, infused, and rainbow-colored bagels. Despite a history of adaptation, Passover pre...

How to Spend Your Time in Tokyo: A Suggested Itinerary for 2019

Posted: 4/25/2019 | April 15th, 2019 Tokyo is one of the most amazing cities in the world.

Weekly Roundup, Friday 12 April 2019

An impression of the interior of the new Istanbul Airport, just now opened and the largest in the world. Good morningAn unplanned, but interesting (I hope) attached article today, being a review of a third emergency car battery “jump-start” unit.  Unlike the two reviewed last week, this one works well and I can recommend it with only a very little bit of “maybe” appended to the recommendation.I’m so pleased to no longer have a nagging feeling in the back of my mind about the car’s battery life –...

AirAsia Fly to Melaka From Penang Daily from RM 12 One Way

After years of waiting, finally AirAsia will start flying from Melaka Airport. AirAsia spreads its wings to the historical state of Melaka with new daily direct flights from Penang starting 1 July 2019. ( = || []).push({}); This is a very smart move as it is really painful to travel from Penang to Melaka (or vice versa). Conventionally, it will take up to 5 hours by car from Melaka to Penang passing by Kuala Lumpur (and the traffic jam). It ...

Maurice and I have long wanted to go to Japan and finally booked a tour in early April hoping to see the famous cherry trees in bloom. We are going on a group tour but arrived a couple of days early for a bit more time in Tokyo. There was a splendid sunset at the airport in Paris as we boarded. Our first glimpse of Tokyo below as we started to descend. It was a 12 hour flight by the way. We had a bit of a wait before we caught our bus to our hotel and sat in a coffee place wh...

Word of Mouth: Tokyo

Design stops that highlight the wonders of the Japanese capital No other city captivates with the same balance of intensity and reverence that’s found in Tokyo. It was developed to meet the unique needs of its inhabitants and in doing so created such a distinct culture that among the chaotic intersections and old-world back alleys surprising discoveries lurk around every corner. Design thoroughly roots itself …

Japan beaches you should visit

Japan is an archipelago made up of 6,852 islands — albeit several that are just 3,000 feet in circumference. Even so, it has an astonishing 18,486 miles of coastline, putting it at the top of the list of shoreline-rich countries. (Only Canada, Greenland, Russia, Indonesia, and the Philippines have more, and of those, the first three have frigid waters.) That means that Japan is awash in wonderful beaches. It also has its very own, unique beach culture. On your next trip to Japan, make sure to...

A Tokyo salary man emerging from the shadows

The Japanese salary man is an ever-present sight in Tokyo, and yet due to his incredibly conformist attire, he is also largely invisible. At least as an individual he is, anyway. The simple addition of a trilby, on the other hand, changes that completely.

Carlos Ghosn Arrest Was Tactical Move to Probe Money Flows - Bloomberg:Soon after Carlos Ghosn was taken into custody last fall, kicking off a bizarre legal odyssey that’s transfixed the automotive world, some wondered whether the financial crimes he’d been accused of were serious enough to warrant the shocking arrest of Nissan Motor Co.’s fabled chairman.Turns out that was just the opening act. The initial arrest last November -- over what some viewed as a relatively minor charge of understatin...

A photo series: Faded and dying rural Japan

Away from Japan’s main cities and popular tourist destinations, the country is awash with faded and gradually emptying towns and settlements — the nation’s low birth rate and increased urban migration causing the slow death of an ever increasing number of locations. Not so long ago on these pages I documented a now closed and overgrown train line just north of Tokyo, and last year a completely abandoned village in the mountains. Both victims, in slightly differing ways, of the aforementioned so...

Travel Photos – Iconic Tokyo Skytree At Night and Dawn

I’ve got a huge backlog of travel photos to clear! Normally, I took over a thousand pictures on each of my every overseas vacation.

This is my biggest resolution of the year! After sharing my travel photos taken in Busan, here...

A truly tiny Tokyo bookshop

In Tokyo, there are minuscule outlets with amazing amounts of stock, as well as cupboard-like electronics stores run by little old ladies. And now, it turns out, there are also similarly small bookshops with pleasant looking proprietors.

Landmarks as amateur sketches

When you hear Boise what comes to mind? Nothing? Potatoes? Lovely a place as the capital of Idaho is, it doesn’t exactly conjure up images of… anything. A big part of that is because it doesn’t have an icon, a landmark or associated image that immediately pops into the collective conscious when people hear the name. Some cities have one highly distinct image associated with them, like gondoliers in Venice. Others can be a bit more complex, like New York. To see what images people associated w...

Immersive art exhibit in Shanghai

Exhibitions are pushing the boundaries between art and art viewers these days and we could not be happier. After Tokyo’s incredible digital art museum (permanent) and the recent Van Gogh digital exhibit in Paris (open until December 31 of this year), it’s Shanghai’s turn to fully immerse people into art pieces and blow their minds in the process.

How Tokyo Hacks Its Streets and Subways

New York is actually a great city to wander in—it’s pretty safe, pedestrian friendly, and laced with public parks and waterfronts. But when Lifehacker sent a team to Tokyo to find the local hacks, damn was I jealous of the city planning.

Always Bring Stomach Medicine When You Travel 

We still don’t know what got us sick in Tokyo. But when four Lifehacker staffers traveled there together this month, three of us caught different bugs at different points. For me, that meant an upset stomach and diarrhea that sent me to bed at 6 every night and made fine dining impossible. I had great luck with…Read more...
