Shibuya Station outside of Tokyo makes Times Square in New York look small in comparison. Great Sushi, Sake and People Watching! Take the Narita Express from Narita Airport to Shibuya for a day of great food, drinks and shopping!

Japan, 〒150-0001 Tokyo, 渋谷区神宮前6−2−4
This restaurant was recommended by the "Tokyo Guide" iPhone app I was using. It looked great, and I love dumplings. When we walked in, we were a bit worried because everything was in Japanese, even the menu. Donna, who knows Chinese, was trying to...

Through a maze of off-street spaces and narrow steps, this is where you can find special nerdy places that offer a variety of electronic gadgets, games and anime figures, among many other things. This is where Japanese pop culture lives and...

A sunset view of Rainbow Bridge and downtown Tokyo from near the Statue of Liberty replica on the man-made island of Odaiba. One of the most panoramic views you can get of Tokyo.

Japan, 東京都新宿区新宿3丁目
I had one free night in Tokyo—only one chance to connect with a Japanese acquaintance from a dive trip on Midway Atoll 10 years earlier. Our mutual friend, Shintaido master Haruyoshi Fugaku Ito, suggested we meet at the Shinjuku rail station and...

If Manhattan’s famous music club CBGB were reimagined by a Japanese food fiend, the result would be Tatemichiya. The izakaya, or Japanese-style tapas bar, in Tokyo’s Daikanyama neighborhood, is the brainchild of punk-music fanatic Yoshiyuki Okada....

It was a magical surprise to come upon the NI-TELE Really BIG Clock at the Nippon Television Tower. This huge mechanical clock designed by Hayao Miyazaki (creator of many anime classics) plays musical, animated shows five times daily. It's so...

The colorful Asakusa district is a laid-back, fun, colorful neighborhood where you can buy crappy kitsch and kitschy crap (there are a lot of kitchenware shops, for some reason). Asakusa is also home to Tokyo's most well-known temples and 45...

An Osaka speciality, takoyaki is the ultimate street food—grilled (yaki) balls of dough stuffed with octopus (tako), covered with whatever you want (I recommend bonito flakes, a sweet soy sauce, mayo and egg—fantastic), served hot and cheap! See...

A fairy-tale castle, Japanese-style. The grounds are massive, the tourist groups ever-present, the grounds inaccessible more often than not—but it's still worth the visit.

Famed for being a faithful dog, Hachiko waited every day at Shibuya station for his master—even nine years after his master's passing. When Hachiko too passed, he had the honor of being buried with his master where they could be together forever....
