As time is of the essence, how does one make the most out of his time in Tokyo? Here are 10 things to do in Tokyo without breaking a sweat.
Meet Motokichi Yukimura.

There is little surprise that people gravitate towards Oedo Japanese Restaurant, and the usually crowded Ajisen Ramen also at Sto. Domingo, is now losing traction.

Domingo, as this time demands for more specialty restaurants that can be reached in a short travel time.
Whether you are in transit, arriving, or departing, Candid Cuisine brings you Narita International Airport cuisine.
The Chef placed Abalone Liver sauce in front of me. I tasted a bit of it and it was really really really creamy and delicious.
