  • Tsukiji Market
  • Maid Cafe @ @home cafe

Tsukiji Market 築地市場

Address: 5 Chome-2-1 Tsukiji, Chuo, Tokyo 104-0045, Japan
Nearest Station: Ginza

My friend told me that this market is actually going to move really soon, so if you're heading there soon, you should go to this place before it's gone! We basically spend the entire morning here eating and eating. Totally pigged out here and headed to my next destination with a happy tummy!

For the first time, I experience the kena-push-into-the-train-experience. Lol, nice experience... but once is good enough!

Warabimochi again but in Black Sesame! 150yen

Tamago 90yen? I can't recall but it was so good.

Scallop with Uni 1,000yen

Unagi and Swordfish, 500yen for both

Some crabstick with wasabi, 200yen

Dafuku, 150yen

2,680yen for this set.

It came together with this. Anyway the chef was damn cute, he told us to take photo while he was holding the dishes.

Maid Cafe @ @home cafe

Address: 〒101-0021 Tōkyō-to, 千代田区外神田Sotokanda, 1 Chome−11, --4 ミツ
Nearest Station: Akihabara
Spent: 2,500yen /pax

Same like butler cafe, photographs of the maid aren't allowed but well, they aren't that strict. If you're wondering if it's a hall of man, well I would say it's 1/2 1/2. There are actually a fair share of tourist, like us who are curious about the place and also female locals who come alone.

Dining time is an hour and entrance cover charge is 600yen per adult. You are to at least order a drink to stay in the cafe on top of the coverage charge. We chose just the dessert set which comes with a drink, a dessert and a photograph with your desired maid.

I'd probably just go once and never again because the food isn't nice. So I will recommend if you want to try, just get the drinks set will do. 

Matcha Latte for me. The interesting thing is the maid will draw the character you like infront of you. Well, I chose Kapibaran, a character that I got to know while on this Japan trip.

And this is my souvenir. Pardon the date on the Polaroid because Chitose wrote the wrong date lol.

Owl Cafe @ Akiba Fukurou

Address: Kanda Neribeicho, Chiyoda, Tokyo 101-0022
Nearest Station: Akihabara
Spent: 2,000yen /pax

I love owls, so whatever I say I am biased. Hahahahhahahahaaha. I totally love this place, going to try every owl cafe I can. Anyway, you have to book online first to avoid disappointment. The place is really small and they can't accommodate alot at once. 

You are given 45 minutes inside the cafe, no drinks, nothing. The 2,000 is purely cover charge. You can choose up to 2 owls, and they will also give you a souvenir at the end of the session. Which is a postcard of you with your choice of owl. You can get the soft copy of the photograph simply by leaving a review on their trip advisor page!

Okay, I'd just let these adorable creatures take your heart away. 

Meet Takoyaki, he is freaking 3kg. The biggest owl in the entire cafe. And if you realize above Takoyaki, there's a pink tag saying '休息中' it basically means that this owl is not available for you to carry, but you can take photographs and pet its forehead.

Left: zzzzz
Right: Aye, walao, wake up lei.

Imma just

It's actually peeking at you, look closely. In Zen mode.

They look like brothers.

Attitude problem newbie to the family.

Meet Kabuki, the owl I chose as my friend!

Register, that was my second choice.

I literally LOL when I saw this owl hahahahahahhaa.

Meet me, and Kabuki! I told him to take a selfie with me and he really put his face close to me. 开心到爆!

Tokyo Tower 東京タワー

Address: 4 Chome-2-8 Shibakoen, Minato, Tokyo 105-0011, Japan
Nearest Station: Kamiyacho
Admission is 900yen

Beautiful night view. Tranquil and spent an hour or so here.


All Singaporeans would probably agree with me that Singapore's Yoshinoya is horrible, expensive and... well that's a good gauge of what's my view on Yoshinoya, Singapore.

However, in Japan... it-was-so-good. Cheap and good I tell you. Daebak!

Everything for 890yen. Yes, I gobbled up every grain of rice (partially cause I was hungry too. teehee)
