Thinking of coming to Japan? Make sure you come hungry! Japan has some of the best food in the world. For me, nothing beats some early morning sea urchin from the Tsukiji Fish Market.
I live in Tokyo with my beautiful wife, in an amazing little apartment in one of my favourite neighbourhoods in the city. There is almost no traffic near our home, yet we are within walking distance of lots of parks, cafes, and restaurants. It’s certainly not the busy Tokyo that most people think of when they visualise this world-class city.
I spend my days painting, studying Japanese calligraphy, skateboarding, and surfing. But I also love travelling. I have visited almost 60 countries, and yet I still feel like I have only just begun to scratch the surface of what this world has to offer. I have been leading tours around South East Asia for 10 years now and I still love every minute of it. Being able to show other people the places that I am passionate about is such a privilege.
When customers visit Japan, they are coming to one of the best travel destinations in the world. Not only is it extremely exotic in the true sense of the word, it is also clean, safe, efficient and full of some of the friendliest people on earth. The contrast between old and modern, and traditional and cutting-edge is a large part of why people keep coming back to this country time and again. It simply has so much to offer!
My advice to travellers; wait for the green man before you cross the road!
