Tokyo is famous for its themed restaurants and bars. From ninjas to zombies, this city offers up dining experiences beyond your wildest dreams (or nightmares).
Vowz Bar, however, is much more than a bar with a theme—it’s owned and operated by actual Buddhist monks. In addition to an eclectic selection of colorful drinks and “light snacks based on Zen cuisine,” Vowz Bar also offers many of the same services you’d find at your local temple or shrine.
Read on to learn more about the fascinating and seemingly contradictory nature of what is certainly one of Tokyo’s most unique nightlife experiences.
The underground mall that opened 50 years ago has lots of quirky shops. “Asakusa Chika-gai” (literally, Asakusa underground mall) was opened in 1955. It has not been renovated for many years, and recently has been showing it’s age. Rain can often be seen leaking through crevices adding to the entertainment of the atmosphere. There are a variety of shops ranging from Chinese food to Thai food, Vietnamese food, Ramen, and even fortune telling and a hairdresser, all together generating a kind of nostalgic Asian atmosphere. How about getting a haircut for 700 yen? There are many “quirky” shops in the underground mall that might intrigue your curiosity. Among these shops […]Read More

Kagurazaka has Edo-period nostalgia! Shinjuku, in the middle of big city Tokyo, is where you’ll find many large chain stores along the street, but when you walk down the smaller, more narrow streets, you’ll find an atmosphere from Edo-period’s red-light district. At the peak of the Meiji era（1868～1912), there were over 700 geisha women working at local tea houses (ochaya). Today, there are still many expensive Japanese restaurants and historic spots. Did you know there is also a public bath in this town? ※Geisha：Geisha is commonly mistaken as a form of prostitution. Geisha usually welcome customers at the restaurant by singing, dancing, having friendly conversations, and provide hospitality and companionship […]Read More
Let’s go and see the mysterious O-torii gate floating on the sea at night! : Illumination at Itsukushima Jinja Shrine
Let’s hang out at Itsukushima Shrine at night after dinner. If you are staying overnight in Miyajima, I’d recommend seeing Itsukushima Shrine at night! At noon When we saw O-torii at low tide, there were a lot of people, but if you come here at night, it’s a little less busy. It’s hard to believe the silence and you can only hear the sound of the waves. We headed to Itsukushima Shrine after dinner to see the illumination. The mysterious O-Torii gate is a must see! Walking during night time at Itsukushima Shrine and witnessing it’s illuminated O-Torii is beautiful. The light reflects on the surface of the sea and […]Read More

Good Okinawan food comes with great sake and a show! Chinuman, the Okinawan restaurant is a must visit.
Taste fresh seafood and Okinawa’s best sake! Okinawan restaurant, Chinuman is a chain restaurant that is open at 8 locations in Okinawa. The entrance is already emitting Okinawa’s vibrant vibes that will excite you even more. Their recommendation is fresh sashimi that is affordable with good quality. Other than that, Okinawa’s regular culinary pork rafutee, Goya-chanpuru, and Beniimo-croquett are also very popular. These are the ‘must things to try’ when visiting Okinawa.
