The cherry blossom season begins in Tokyo. These trees in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi district always begin to flower just before the full bloom of the cherry blossom trees in Tokyo. It’s s good sign.

There’s the good, the bad, and the so-so. If you want good sushi, one restaurant in Japan for sushi that has never let us down is Chojiro. The quality of the fish is always good. Even if you don’t like fish, they have some other great options with beef, veggies, and more
PS. ‘Kaiten’ In Japanese means conveyer belt sushi. Kaiten actually means ‘going around’. When you’re looking for good food, the last thing you want to be doing is wandering around and hoping for the best.
