Edogawa Naramachi - An Unagi Feast in an Edo-jidai Shophouse

 photo Edogawa Nara Japan 4.jpg
Edogawa Naramachi is renowned for their execution of fresh unagi and the restaurant is equally popular with both locals and tourists. We walked in at around 730pm on a weeknight and were greeted by really warm service. We took off our shoes and placed them in the lockers provided before we were ushered to a traditional tatami-style room.

I was really insistent on making a trip to Kobe just to try Kobe beef until I was told that I could actually get it in Osaka. Tsurugyu is a really popular haunt with both locals and tourists alike. You need a reservation to dine here, so don't even dream of trying to walk in!

After staying in the hotels in Japan, I have a new found appreciation for the hotel rooms in Singapore. Just look at this gorgeous room in The Westin Singapore that is so spacious, cozy and utterly comfortable. I wish I never had to leave!

10 Must Eats in Kyoto (Japan)

 photo Kyoto must eat Inoichi 1.jpg
I travelled to Japan recently and spent 3 out of 12 days in Kyoto! It's the first time I was visiting Japan and I was super, super excited. I was all ready for a temperature of 14 to 17 degrees but little did I know that I would be dealing with 5 degrees and the possibility of snow. Needless to say, I was almost frozen alive haha. To keep warm, I stuffed myself with more food than I should have. So here's a compilation of where to eat and what to eat in Kyoto!

Ever since I saw pictures of the Fox Village back in 2014, visiting it has been on my bucket list. So when I booked my trip to Japan back in March, I knew that I had to make it here! Our original plan was to travel here from Tokyo but we made a last minute decision to go from Kyoto instead. We left Kyoto at 8am in the morning, arrived at Tokyo around noon to deposit our luggage in the lockers, and made our way to Shiroishi-Zao from there.
