Burn the Calories

If going to the gym means like this, I would not mind. But it does not mean I should eat as I desire either...


Did not know they have an outlet in Tokyo. Much nicer than the one in Park Slope Brooklyn.

This is HOW you spend the day

At the pool side with the view. Nobody but myself.

Power Breakfast

One of the best selections this hotel has. I am for sure to ggo back for something sweet, including fruits.


The hotel delivered this tray to the room to welcome us, kind of. Just one of the benefits for staying at hotels so many nights.

Back in Tokyo

At our favorite hotel with this tower view. What not to like, right?

Sukiyaki Dinner

Eatery near by the hotel. It has been over 100 years in this business. We had a private room just for us. Memorable last meal in Hakodate.

Onuma Lake

30 minutes train ride from Hakodate. Lake with hundreds of small islands. Autumn color emphasizes the beauty of the lake.

It was not the best day in terms of the weather, but no rain.
Beautiful sites to observe the city.

Night in Hakodate

Unique burgers at a local joint. It is decorated with Christmas stuff. A bit creepy but fun.
This is ton-katsu burger and we also got Chinese chicken burger as well
Warehouse district to walk to burn some calories.

Cheers to Sendai

Yesterday before heading to dinner, we had a drink at the lobby. 26th floor gave us a nice view of the city.

Chinese in Sendai

They have their local dish, Mabo-Tofu over noodle. With other dishes our stomach was full after this.

Sendai Now

You have to eat tongue in Sendai. Three different dishes using tongue.
🐂 tail soup was also delicious. Both ends of beef. Very interesting.

Kyoto and Eel

Another trip to Japan. This time on vacation.
Started in Kyoto where I was able to see real Maiko-san,  a junior Geisha.
Stopped by at my sister's place for eel. Yummy.
Now a glass of wine in Tokyo.  Just started, and so far so good.
