After 3 nights without proper sleep, it was nice to finally get a lie-in this morning. I thought heavy snow at Heathrow Airport on Sunday would have delayed my departure to Japan. As my luck it would have it, all flights were back to normal and I ended up arriving in Japan almost 45 minutes […]
Whenever I bring up visting Japan in conversation with friends or family they always ask the same question “Is it expensive to visit Japan?” Well here’s your answer. No, at least according to me!

Koreatown is located near Shin-Okubo station in Shinjuku, a ward that I don’t find myself in too often. I’ve only been to Koreatown once, but I truly enjoyed it. The food is amazing and the beer is cheap.
My next trip to Japan has been decided! I will be in Tokyo between December 21 and January 3 (or 4). Everything’s been set up with accommodation and I can even get a couple of extra days off work if I want to.
