We are back! It was a long break on the blog but I hope you are still here with us.
 I’m trying to catch up with work, so please be patient with me. I have so much to tell you! 

Today a taste of Shinjuku in Tokyo. If you can imagine that Tokyo is the world’s most populous metropolitan area with upwards of 37.8 million people and the world’s largest urban agglomeration … well, don’t be scared, it is very easy to navigate around. Wonderful subway system will take you anywhere in few minutes! Tokyo is one of the safest cities on earth with the most kind and helpful people I had ever chance to meet. 

We were so lucky with the cherry blossom. If you ever plan to go there in around this time of the year I would highly recommend to take your lunch to a park and sit together with locals. Enjoy this amazing moment in the hart of the crazy busy city. You will just relax, watch the beautiful nature and festive vibe around you. Such a wonderful experience.  We got our lunch ( Bento box) at the beautiful store ISETAN. The food department in the basement is an absolute heaven to walk around. 

We decided to focus on 3 districts in Tokyo which we wanted to get to know more. First days we stayed for business at Shinjuku, close to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. It is an office district with a lot of people waking in black suits but there are plenty of local restaurants and bars. At night you can just walk around the little streets and absolutely get lost in the mood, food and atmosphere…..
