Oh Tokyo!

Oh Tokyo! How we love you so! This was my 3rd visit to Tokyo and Roger’s 2nd visit. We are very lucky in that we have a dear friend, Craig, who lives there. Craig is an amazing host taking us all over the city and sharing with us his favourite places. We had so many incredible meals in adorable little restaurants. We drank lots of yummy sake, beer and my fav, Umeshu. We wandered through Shibuya, Harajuku, Koenji and Kichijoji, all amazing neighbourhoods. On our last night in town Craig invited a bunch of friends over and we had a nabe party. It was a lovely way to end our time in Tokyo.

Thank you, Craig, for another incredible visit. You really are the host with the most. We hope to see you again soon!

We still drool when we think of that meal.Craig was so patient translating menus for usI have a confession. I only like sashimi in Tokyo. It is just so incredibly good there!After dinner we went to Enjoy House for drinks.
