What to See and Eat in Tokyo

This video is perfect for those who haven’t visited Tokyo and looking to have a variety of cultural experiences. You can basically get around in Tokyo without speaking Japanese. People will help you, but knowing a little bit of Japanese and how to ride a subway train go a long way. Whatever the final destination may be, walking to the location from the nearest subway station can be challenging. Unlike US cities, the streets in Tokyo meander in every directions. A visitor from outside the country may need a sophisticated GPS system to find on his/her way. Even Japanese people who can read all the signs and street names often get lost. This is where asking a stranger with a few Japanese words comes in handy. Ask as many people as you can until you get there.

Back in the day when sushi was only available at restaurants, you would not think of eating sushi at a company lunch room. Today, it is so ubiquitous that if you visit a supermarket, you almost always find a selection of sushi. Eating sushi out of a plastic deli container is OK, but wouldn’t you rather enjoy your sushi on a porcelain sushi plate with someone across the table?

Black Karakusa Sushi Serving Set will make a perfect solution for the ESPC (eating sushi out of plastic container) syndrome. The set comes with a large serving plate, two appetizer size dinner plates, two dipping dishes, and two pairs of chopsticks.

Who doesn’t want to visit a town where people are friendly and smiling where ever you go?
