For many travelers, the taste of home is something that can become greatly missed! Whether it be donuts, authentic New York style pizza, or burgers, we’ve got you covered! Here is a list of five great eateries in Tokyo to enjoy some American vibes!

Let’s be honest: the contents of someone else’s bag can be utterly fascinating! While a wallet is a fairly standard thing to carry around, it’s all the other little knickknacks and necessities found in a bag that make us extra curious. Depending on someone’s job, style, and so on, the contents of their bag vary wildly, telling their very own, charming story about their owner! This time, we asked a female college student from Tokyo if she’d show us what’s inside her bag. Her name is Ami and her dream is to become an announcer, while she does ballet as a hobby. Between her broadcasting classes and dance club, she also participated in a university-wide contest to find the prettiest students, both male and female—and Ami made it to the semifinals! If she doesn’t have class, she also hones her skills as part-time staff at a radio station. What’s in the bag of such a busy, charming student?

While we hope that you’ll be able to discover Japan’s many charms all healthy and energetic, it’s important to know what to do in the case of a bit of pain or mild sickness that doesn’t necessarily require a visit to the doctor. Japan’s drugstores are well-stocked and offer a large selection of medicine for all sorts of common ailments. We have compiled a list of words and vocabulary to get just the right medicine you need!

Real Japan: Preparing a Western-Style Breakfast!

What people eat for breakfast in each country is intriguing, but breakfast in Japan can present a real issue for visitors especially when staying at a traditional inn. Tourists aren’t always keen on grilled fish and natto in the morning - but did you know that Japanese people themselves are also torn between Western-style toast and Japanese-style natto? We snuck into the kitchen of a regular household in Japan to see what is served for breakfast.
