Touristy but Awesome: Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant

When I visited Tokyo, I had numerous people tell me before I left that I just had to check out the Robot Restaurant. I had seen it featured on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown as well as on blogs all over the internet, so I had an inkling of what it was all about and was excited to check it out for myself. So, I reserved a night at the restaurant before I left for Tokyo (show only…I skipped the dinner because I had been told it’s not very good), and looked forward to the show!

A Day in Hiroshima, Japan

When you think of Hiroshima, Japan, the images that come to mind are that of that horrible day during World War 2 when my country dropped an atomic bomb on it. Since I was spending time in Kyoto and could reasonably do a day trip to Hiroshima via the Shinkansen, I wanted to pay my respects and learn a little more about the history of this place.
