Scintillating orbs, polka dots, pumpkins, phallic objects, dizzying mesh of round and long things #yayoikusama #art #dot #pumpkin #hype #rainbow #sg

I'm thankful for another culinary treat! Nestled in the quiet neighbourhood of Nishi-Azabu is a master of tonkatsu (pork cutlets), Butagumi 豚組! Delighted to arrive 1st in line just before they opened for dinner. Tried the Deluxe Ryukaton (琉香豚), and was totally up the hype. It was chunky, juicy and had a nice chewy texture, and yet not overly tough. Worth a 2nd try! #travel #japan #tokyo #roppongi #tonkatsu #butagumi #豚組 #foodie #jp

Dinner at the oldest tempura house in Shinjuku, Funabashiya 船橋屋 operating over a century! Loved the casual dining atmosphere. Tempura was served course by course, and I liked the crisp but refreshing taste (not oily), best was the kakiage! #travel #japan #tokyo #tempura #dinner #foodie #jp

Beautiful view from Chūreitō Pagoda (忠霊塔), at Fujiyoshida city! Offers one of the best views of Mt Fuji. I guess I'm not so lucky this time of year, but still it's worth the climb! #travel #japan #chureito #pagoda #mount #fuji #jp

One of the most lavishly decorated temples I've ever visited, and not surprising why it's also one of the most popular. Houses the mausoleum of Tokugawa Ieyasu, founder of the Tokugawa shogunate #travel #japan #nikko #toshogu #temple #unesco #jp

Kegon Falls 華厳滝 - one of the best views near Lake Chūzenji. Located at Nikkō National Park, it drops almost 100m below #travel #japan #nikko #kegon #waterfall #nature #water #jp

After a gruelling 2 hour queue, I've tried Tokyo's 2nd ramen shop to be awarded a Michelin star. It's the cheapest Michelin meal in the city! Located in a quiet corner of Ōtsuka, just a stone's throw away from the immensely popular Tsuta. I had the tan tan men 担担麺 which tasted quite extraordinary, didn't have the usual peanut butter and salty taste, instead a very subtle and nutty umami flavour. And still has a spicy kick! #travel #japan #ramen #michelin #michelinstar #nakiryu #jp

Many faces of Mount Asama, an active volcano giving birth to fertile soils of Shinshū and many onsen towns in Gunma and Nagano #travel #japan #mount #asama #volcano #nagano #jp

Next culinary treat is monjayaki! Of course I had to try making it myself. The gooey runny texture differentiates it from okonomiyaki. Still tastes good! #travel #japan #tokyo #cuisine #tsukishima #maguroya #monja #jp
