After living in Japan for more than 3 years, I have a lot to say about the country. By clicking on the Japan picture below you will be taken to a wide variety of Japan related blog posts, including itineraries, local travel tips and amazing experiences you can have in the land of the rising sun.
From Japan, I did a couple of trips to other Asian countries over the years, including Vietnam and Taiwan. And I created just a few posts about my experiences there. Once I visit again, I will have more to share with you for sure.
From December 2018 to spring 2019 I will explore other parts of Asia extensively, including Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia. I will update you about my experiences via blog posts over time. But if you want to know what I am up to in real time, you can subscribe to my email newsletter.
It is kind of surprising that I don’t have more content on Europe, being German and everything. But I just find all the other destinations that I visit so much more fascinating that I don’t really feel like writing much about destinations in Europe.
So far I have covered just a couple of places and experiences in the UK (because it is by far my favorite European country) and I am planning on always creating more content. If only I had the time to work on everything I want to.

My first and only day trip to Nikko was 3 years ago. It was my first day trip with Taka and the first time I got out of Tokyo after arriving there 2 months earlier to work at a Japanese IT consulting company. The trip has been a fond memory ever since, and I feel […]
The first clear drink I came across in Japan was Yogurina a clear yogurt drink. I thought it was strange to have a bottle that looks like water but tastes like yogurt, but it got me curious (which is probably the whole point of making a yogurt drink look like water). So I bought a […]
In May of 2018, I made my fourth trip to the Fuji Five Lakes. This area located in Yamanashi Prefecture lies 2 hours east of Tokyo and is a perfect day trip destination. If you want to read more about Japan travel head over to the Japan Travel Blog. If you were looking for day […]
Visiting an Onsen (a Japanese Hot Spring) should be on every visitor’s Japan bucket list. The Japanese hot springs are famous for its healing powers and long tradition similar to the Roman baths. There are areas in Japan that are famous for its Onsen waters which are pumped up from sometimes hundreds of meters below […]
At some point during your stay in Tokyo you are going to visit Tokyo Station, at least I hope you will because it is a great place to visit and on my five days in Tokyo to do list. So, even if you aren’t arriving or departing from Tokyo Station, plan a visit to see […]
When I was studying in Osaka for ten months, my parents came to visit, and we traveled Japan for three weeks. But even before that, I had already explored Tokyo and also the Kanto area (Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe) excessively. Since I came to live in Tokyo three years ago, I took even more […]
Out of the many Onsen towns all over Japan, Ikaho Onsen is probably one of the most underappreciated by foreign tourists. In my opinion, and after visiting countless Onsen over the years, Ikaho Onsen is one of the best Onsen in Japan. Let me convince you. In this post, I will give you all the […]
My very first visit to Tokyo, Japan was at the age of 18. I stayed for six weeks to attend a language school. It gave me my first opportunity to get acquainted with this fantastic metropolis. During my ten months study abroad in Osaka, I came back to Tokyo with my parents, to show them […]
I have stayed with a host family in Japan twice. My first homestay in Japan was for 6 weeks in Tokyo, the first time I ever came here. The second time was for 3 months in Kyoto. While the first time was an overall pleasant experience my second time was one of the best 3 […]
I love Japanese food so much I could eat it every day. Recently, Taka and I found the best Udon in Tokyo at an Udon restaurant in Ningyocho close to our home that we just love. It is not only incredibly delicious because the Udon noodles are made fresh by hand just before you eat […]
