It’s all a matter of style

Welcome to architecture-playground Japan. Iconic buildings and variegate neighborhoods gently blended in Osaka and Tokyo. If architecture really affects the way we feel, you will feel good in Japan!

It smells like fish

Tsukiji is the largest fish and seafood market of the world, actually, it is one of the largest markets of the world of any kind. Located in Tokyo bay, it is organized in inner and outer markets: the first for buying, the second for eating. Either you manage being there at 4am for the tuna auction or before 11am to watch all-the-creatures-of-the-vast-ocean for sale, don’t miss it before it moves out of the city in 2018!

Nose-to-tail eating: with tuna fishes nothing goes to waste.

How many packages can you prepare with one 680 Kg tuna fish?

Death on the table … but life still crawling below it …

In the outer market, dry shrimps, fishy fishes and fish soups!

Hidden

Large gardens and thick forests are landmarks to several metropolitan areas of Japan. Hidden in these peaceful greens, Japanese tradition unfolds.

Not all is Geisha

For their 20th birthday, Japanese girls dress kimonos and walk the streets of Kyoto (and to a lesser extent of Tokyo). Much rarer is to meet a Geisha. It happened in Kyoto, just before she quickly disappeared in a taxi after a special evening at the restaurant.

Kyoto's motto: dress (kimonos) 'til you drop

Spiritual elements

Stone, water and wood: the spiritual geometry of Japan is based on few natural elements, blended as nature would do.
