Yanaka Ginza, All You Need To Know

When I first heard about Yanaka Ginza, I assumed it would be located in the main Ginza district of Tokyo and I was so wrong.

Coronavirus crisis threatens to silence Japan's tourist boom

The restaurants at the Exitmelsa shopping center in Tokyo's upscale Ginza district are usually packed with Chinese tourists. For Japanese who have grown dependent on Chinese tourists for business, like waiter Kiyotake Watanabe, it marks a disconcerting trend. "People on group tours would gather together at noon, and 10 or 20 of them would come in all at once," Watanabe, who works at a Chinese restaurant in the shopping center, told Reuters.

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...

Solo Female Travel in Japan — Yes, it’s Safe, but Isolating

Traveling solo in Japan is a fascinating, warm, and unforgettable experience. Most people have an idea in their head of what Japan will be like, but it’s impossible to understand until you’re there yourself. Japan is immaculate temples brimming with lanterns. Japan is steaming bowls of ramen on a cold night. Japan is shy geishas rushing to their appointments in platform sandals, bullet trains carving through the countryside, bubbling hot springs set in the mountains. And so much more. At the ti...
