One of my favourite snacks of all time! ONIGIRI!! Usually I like buying Salmon flavoured ones but Tako was delicious! And Tuna & Mayo is a classic taste! I’m open to trying new flavours. I kinda like the latter packaging, only because I’m clumsy with the first!

Surviving Japanese Traffic

Japan Oblong

When talking about traffic or transportation in Japan images of fully packed subway carts, lightning fast bullet trains and the ever so famous Shibuya crossing probably pop up in most people’s minds. There is much more to it than that but traffic in Japan is definitely fast, modern and in my opinion, a little crazy. At times it can be daunting but knowing some do’s and dont’s of the system can also make your experience here much more enjoyable.

Here I have listed a few flamboyantly random pointers on how to survive in Japanese traffic based on my own experiences.

It is worthy mentioning that Tokyo is a completely different world in its own and due to it being a mega city everything in Tokyo is just muchmore than anywhere else in Japan.

The company came for an annual check of the pipes in the apartment. as always, impressive!!

3 of them turned up on time, deployed plastic covers all over the apartment, checked the pipes, rolled everything back and Mn later were gone

that’s it, I am done for one year!!

Tokyo lights

One thing to note is that all fairs are an opportunity in Japan. Mother’s day, baseball, Halloween, Christmas, New Year, you name it, anything works!

IN december, near Yoyogi park, adjoining the NHK buildings, there was this amazing blue alley, every day at 17h00, it would switch on along the 750m that lead up to Shibuya.

They used to have this in Meguro but moved it there 3 years ago. it is a fairy tale when all lightens, I was very impressed. If you are in town in December, dont miss out, it is worth the moment, try to be there at 16h50 to see the launch any evening of the week. You may also enjoy it in 6 others cities across the country – Nagoya, Sendai, Sapporo, Hiroshima, Osaka and Fukuoka.

Chapter 146: Mentaiko (Pollock Roe) Onigiri & Calbee Potato Chips

Mentaiko is a must eat in Japan, it is a great dish, easy to combine with rice, great! I love it too

The Flying Tofu


Mentaiko! A favourite flavour that fits so well with simple rice!! Savoury, with a good balance between salty and spicy. The real thing is sort of juicy and adds flavour to rice, pasta, and spaghetti. It makes an excellent side-dish. Thumbs up to the Onigiri!! What a great snack to have in this flavour, I could eat it all day. The potato chips where sort of dry, maintaining the balance of its saltiness and spice, I had to down a cup of water straight after. Apparently Mentaiko originates from Korea with a few variations.
