DAY 1 @ TOKYO東京 | ASAKUSA 浅草 & SHIBUYA 渋谷区February 24, 2017
Asakusa is a district in Taito, Tokyo. I have read an article written about Asakusa whereby previously was the largest district with gang...
While there was a Japanese original pastry shop sold Jumbo Melon Pan which was first baked 15 years ago. And have their first store in Asakusa. It's first distinctive feature is the size larger than average melon bread.
I bought a famous fried meatball from 浅草メンチAsakusa Menchi is a popular fried meatball shop on Denboin-Dori Street in Asakusa. I saw a lot of people queuing up for the fried meatball. Best eating time while it is hot-served! Recommend to try this when you are there.
You can buy the tickets at the vending machine near the entrance and pass the tickets to the waiter. Then, you can either choose open space or the single seating(quiet area) to enjoy your ramen.
Having my first Tonkotsu Ramen at ICHIRAN(Asakusa branch) originally from Fukuoka. Its provide me an unusual ramen experience whereby the interior layout are designed to block out all distractions, something you can see in the library so that you can concentrate on the flavour of the ramen 😍😍 This is the Charm of Tokyo. You can just purchase the ramen by using the ticket vending machine 😉😉 Venue: 👆👆location #travellover23#japan#tokyo#my_and_tokyo2017#ichiranjapan#foodporn#igtraveljp#beautifulcuisine#airasiaX#flywithairasia#visitjapanau#visitjapanau
You will be given a checklist where you can decide the flavour strength, richness, original red sauce quantity, noodle texture, sliced pork and etc.
My parents and uncle feel satisfied with ramen.
The Charm of Tokyo 🎌🎌- Standing at Azumabashi bridge have a birdeye view of Sumida river. The things that charmed me is not only the famous Tokyo Skytree but also the building that make me figure out for so long time. Look at the black glass building and the enormous golden flame shaped object perched on top. This building has caught my first sight when I was at the bridge! This the Super Dry Hall of the Asahi Beer Headquarters. The golden flame object was known as "Flamme d'Or" means flame of gold ! 🔥🔥 This is such an intriguing architectural wonders! #travellover23#japan#tokyo#my_and_tokyo2017#igtraveljp#visitjapanau#travelbloggers#travel#airasiax#flywithairasia#beautifuldestinations#travelawesome#yolo
Let me tell you what is that. The Asahi headquarters has 2 main buildings. The higher building has resembled a giant beer jug with the roof top foam. While the lower building was the Asahi Super Dry Hall. Its structure resembled the black beer glass with an enormous golden flame object on top of it. The golden flame object was known as "Flamme d'Or" means flame of gold! This is the landmark of Asahi.
We didn't manage to pay a visit at Tokyo Skytree as the weather was too cloudy. What a sad moment. I'll be back one day.
Next, I have met my hometown friend at Shibuya 渋谷区. I was stunned when I saw the Shibuya Crossing. It was as packed as sardines.
The loyal dog (Hachiko) statue was located at Hachiko Square nearby Shibuya Crossing. If you have heard about the story, then you must pay a visit to this place. Then, I went for Shibuya 109 to shop while waiting for my friend.
