This is a MONSTER post with lots of photos, so let’s get straight into it. In no particular order, here is 50 cool things about Japan… Vending machines: Mostly they are really nothing special. We’ve heard rumours of vending machines with used school-girls panties and other crazy things, but never seen anything like it on my travels around this country. They are great because if you are thirsty, no matter where you are you are just about guaranteed to find one. And the prices are all reasonable, only about 10-50% higher than supermarkets, but definitely cheaper (and more convenient than) convenience stores – but that still equates to be about half the price we pay for the same drinks in Australia.

Whimsical places exist all over the world. And We Heart is just the place to discover some of them. Check out this awesome new Tokyo restaurant designed by Fantastic Design Works Co. Alice of Magic World – the fourth in a series of eateries based on Lewis Carroll’s creation – is a decidedly trippy affair, complete with custom made heart shaped chandelier and table, playing card tables and its own forest. There’s even Cheshire Cat tail pizza slices on the menu.
Picture perfect for this picnic. Wish I could have sat down and joined in. Beautiful Sakura. So many people enjoying themselves, whether they were sitting down and drinking or just walking on by.
I live in Japan, but barely speak Japanese. I can’t help you with verb conjugation or passing the JLPT. But I have managed to eat! Restaurants in Japan are a culinary and cultural adventure.
