Shin-Okubois close to the large local Korea Town. I like Korean food very much so I went to there with best Korean friend.
She has been living in Japan for 3 month and she also miss Korean food
Of course we went to Korean restaurant and ordered Samgyeopsal.
Samgyeopsal is a popular Korean dish and it consists of thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat. The meat is cooked on a grill at the diners’ table.
All staff were Korean so she talked staff by Korean. Food was very tasty and made us very full!! Staff also very friendly and they were good service.
I think that it was same quality and price as Korea.
After dinner, we walked Korean town and I bought some Korean noodle and snacks! My friend recommend these stuff so I wanted to eat them ;p
After shopping we went to cafe and ate Patbingsoo!
Patbingsoo is a very popular dessert in South Korea, especially during the humid summer season.
It is ice shavings and sweetened azuki beans and topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrups, various fruits such as strawberries, kiwifruit, and bananas, small pieces of tteok (rice cake), chewy jelly bits, and cereal flakes.
You can choose your favorite topping. It is good for eating summer!!
You can get stamina and power from Korean food so I recommend to eat this hot summer season
When I left Tokyo,weather was very bad. Tokyo was so hot before long days. I felt unlucky for a short trip.
The next day, the rain was stop afternoon so I went to lake o Ashino for a walk with a dog. I found a mountain route between Tougendai and Owakudani and I got a presant surprise.

It was a nice walking trail.
I reccomend you walking this route. It took about only one hour.
Sony Building is very popular spot for tourists to stop by and enjoy the latest Sony’s technology and products. As a Sony’s fan, I won’t miss a chance to visit there, so I went last week because during Summer, not only you can enjoy trying out new items or products that you are interested in but also can relax with the mini-aquarium of marine lifes like ray, coral fish and so on.
Talking about the latest technology in Japan, nothing is ever hotter than 3D TV, of course, not just Sony but also other electronic brands have released the same 3D TV. It’s amazing to be able to see people pop out from the screen with just wearing a special glasses. Other than 3D TV, there are latest type of camera, laptop, CD walkman and video recorder provided.
Sony building is located near Hermes Building and easily access by subway Hibiya line, Ginza Station
Last year I experienced Sumida Riverside Firework Festival with my friend Yoko. This year, Ryoko san, one of Andon staff invited me to visit Kanamachi-Shimabata to see firework on Edo Riverside which was wonderful experience for me because, last year, I couldn’t see the firework clearly because of expressway had blocked the scenery. Thus, I chose to go to Edo Riverside Firework Festival because I knew that nothing would block the view of firework. As you remembered that I went to this town before to have famous tempura restaurant and saw Japanese style house and enjoyed tea and dessert. I arrived there early so I walked around and got sweet redbean dango from Toraya which I thought it’s the most famous, but then Ryoko san told me that the most famous one was the other store, I was disappointed that I didn’t try that store’s dango.
The firework started at 7.20 and last for 1 hour, the impact firework and character firework like Doraemon could be seen. We bought beer and yatai food like yakisoba and takoyaki to enjoy while looking at the firework. This experience will always stay with me as good memory. Japan Summer Firework festivals are definately the best of on my Japan’s Summer Must Do List…:)
Ps. It was the first time I put on Yukata by myself, I was very happy to be able to do it……
I went to Odaiba where is large artificial island in Tokyo Bay across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo.
Every summer there is a big festival by Fuji-TV company.
In this year’s event is “United States Of Odaiba” from 17th of July to 31st of August.
Please check this web page and you can image what is there happen.
I recommend to visit there if you have time
Odaiba is one of my favorite place in Tokyo. There are a lot of shopping place, restaurant and nice design building.
You can go there by Yurikamome line from Shinbashi station and across the Rainbow Bridge
Have a fun!!!
