I love the ambiance in restaurants at night! I find something very similar to Spain in their ‘Joie de vivre’, having fun with friends, late into the night… Lots of places like this, where we’re all sitting at the bar, surrounding the central kitchen, with the chef joyfully preparing his specialties … (note the hangers on the walls ;-)

Paying meals in advance in vending machines ! I remember when i first came here, this system felt quite exotic to me… ( even more so when in fancy restaurants..).

Chicken Sashimi ! I never thought I would eat raw chicken ever in my life !… It was in another restaurant without any photos or English menu. At first, we thought the chef wasn’t pronouncing right when he said “Raw chicken” . Oh Wow ! so delicious!

at Shinjuku station… I’m always so impressed by the synchronized fluidity with more than 3,5 million people passing by every day… making it the world’s busiest transport hub in the world !
