Tokyo Eats Guide Book

Thank you so much for your amazing response and interest in the Tokyo Eats Guide Book and a special thanks to those of you who have already purchased a copy!! I have gotten emails & comments from readers and friends from all over the world and couldn’t be happier or more thankful for your love and support :)

……………………………………………………

I also wanted to take this opportunity to answer three questions I’ve received from several readers:

1) Is the guide book sold in local book stores in Japan?

The Tokyo Eats Guide Book is only available for online orders at the moment as I am self-publishing the book. I chose this company (which is owned by Amazon) so that it would be easier for English-language speakers to purchase. However, it seems like shipping to Japan doesn’t take too long since I’ve received some emails from readers and friends who received their copies relatively quickly. I will definitely keep you updated in the future should the book become available directly in Japan.

2) Is a PDF version of the Tokyo Eats Guide Book available?

Unfortunately there is no PDF or eBook version at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

3) How long does shipping take?

The book will be shipped from the United States. Please check HERE for the estimated delivery time to your country.

I’ve done the hard work for you and provided recommendations on what to do and most importantly, in this city filled with thousands of restaurants, where to eat! Whether this is your first time traveling to Tokyo or your fifth time, this book has something for everyone.

Designed, photographed and written by me, this 60-page book covers some of the most popular neighborhoods like Ginza, Shibuya, Harajuku, Omotesando, Meijijingumae, Daikanyama, Ebisu, Roppongi, Nakameguro, Gakugeidaigaku, Jiyugaoka, Kichijoji, Tokyo Station, Marunouchi and more. It contains my personal recommendations for each neighborhood such as what to do, where to go, where to shop and where to eat. I’ve included general dining tips as well as a section of exclusive content called “My Secret Spots” which I’ve never shared on my blog. Places I like so much I’ve purposely kept them secret – until now! It’s the ultimate Tokyo Eats insider guide to Tokyo with an emphasis on food… So if you’re a fan of my blog, this guide is for you!

Happy Halloween!

I recently went back to Tokyo Skytree and Tokyo Disney Sea and they were both filled with Halloween spirit. It was my first time going up to the observation deck and it really was an impressive view – I highly recommend it. Disney Sea was just amazing as always but I gotta say we might have had the most successful and fun trip this time around ;)

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.

Kamogawa/鴨川 near Sanjo/三条 and Shijo/四条.
This area is THE hang out place in Kyoto. So many shops, cafes and places to dine on Sanjo and Shijo streets near and around Kamogawa.

Eikando Temple/永観堂
Absolutely zen and beautiful. A must see especially during foliage season.

Pictured above are some of the places I visited during my trip to Kyoto and absolutely LOVED. Since I’ve already been to many of the main stream temples and popular places in Kyoto, I am finally getting to visit some of the less known and less traveled places. We were fortunate to have our friend drive us around everywhere so it was easy getting around to all of these places. It’s always a treat to travel with locals who know the area well :) We totally want to come back during the fall foliage season in November if we can. Kyoto is definitely one of our favorite places in Japan outside of Tokyo♡

2013 Summer in Japan has been one of the hottest summers ever. Shimanto, Kouchi has had a record breaking 41C heat + an unprecedented 4 consecutive days of 40C weather. Tokyo has been miserably hot as well but it seems to have finally calming down a bit. Here’s a glimpse of my summer fun. Hope everyone had a nice summer :)
