Tsukiji Fish Market

Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan (September 2017) Post Mortem

One of the places I visited while I was in Japan was the Tsukiji Fish Market. To be honest, I didn’t think it was a place that was particularly worth visiting. I know the draw is the tuna auction at 4.00 am (JST) but seriously, the idea of taking a cab in Tokyo to reach the market that early to watch the auction is quite … Continue reading Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan (September 2017) Post Mortem

Yokohama luggage storage

Luggage Storage Service in Yokohama Station

On my last day in Yokohama, after I checked out from the apartment in the morning, I planned to find a locker in the Yokohama train station instead of lugging it all over the place. However, all the lockers for the large sized luggages were in use and I was in dismay; I thought I would have to lug my huge luggage around while waiting for … Continue reading Luggage Storage Service in Yokohama Station

ONE OK ROCK “Ambitions” Japan Tour 2017 Post Mortem

I’ve been a fan of ONE OK ROCK’s music for quite some time so when I found out that they are performing in Yokohama Arena while I was in Japan, I bought my ticket to their “Ambitions” Japan Tour 2017 on 22 April 2017 without thinking twice despite the SGD320 ticket price. No regrets. When I arrived at the venue, I was overwhelmed by the sheer … Continue reading ONE OK ROCK “Ambitions” Japan Tour 2017 Post Mortem

Taste Test: Fluffy Japanese Pancakes

Before I came to Yokohama, Japan, I’ve been seeing lots of videos online about those fluffy Japanese pancakes and day 1 when I arrived in Yokohama, I set out to hunt for them. After some research (ie Googling), I found out that West confectionery is home to these delicious pancakes and there is an outlet in Yokohama! The outlet in Yokohama is pretty easy to … Continue reading Taste Test: Fluffy Japanese Pancakes

Kevin announced in March 2017 that he would depart from U-Kiss after his contract ended.

U-Kiss Hand-Shake Event in Hachioji Tokyo 2016 Post Mortem

This is probably something that is unique to concerts in Japan; there is usually a hi-touch or handshake event after the evening concerts. I didn’t managed to get a ticket to the handshake event on the 25th November. I was mentally prepared to not be able to see them U-Kiss boys up-close during this trip but it must be fate because I managed to score a ticket for … Continue reading U-Kiss Hand-Shake Event in Hachioji Tokyo 2016 Post Mortem
