Here’s the first of my photo-heavy posts. I went twice to Senso-ji Temple and it was undoubtedly one of my favourite places in Tokyo. It’s Tokyo’s oldest Buddhist temple and was originally built in the year 628 but was destroyed in a bombing raid during 1945. I took several hundred photos but I’ll only share … More Senso-ji Temple at night: Tokyo
Anyone who’s spent enough time on Instagram will have seen this infamous candy floss originating from Tokyo’s trendy Harajuku district. I basically just bought an obnoxiously large rainbow candy floss and I regret nothing! … More Giant rainbow candy floss in Harajuku, Tokyo!
This is clearly the quality content you’ve subscribed for. I’ve slowly been ticking things off the ‘hipster to-do’ list in Tokyo and I regret nothing. Yesterday I went to a hedgehog cafe – perhaps the first of it’s kind anywhere?! But that’s Japan for you; purveyors of niche crazes that travel far and wide. The … More Hedgehog cafe in Shibuya, Tokyo
Yes, the clue is in the name. Today’s post is about sushi bars in Tokyo that are standing-room-only. Reasonably priced sushi which is freshly prepared in front of you. Two friends of mine recommended one in Shinjuku and I also stumbled across one in Shibuya. For all intense and purposes, they’re the same but I’ll … More Tokyo’s standing sushi bars

I’m here for 18 days before I fly to Hong Kong and I’m going to hold myself to writing a blog post every day of my trip because, let’s be honest, I’m terrible at writing posts in good time. A short and sweet … More I’m in Tokyo! Day 1 thoughts on Japan
Well hello there. Long time no blog. Fear not, I have plenty of new content coming. Let’s get started with Barcelona which I visited earlier this summer. A disclaimer before I begin: I’m a big foodie. I like cooking food, looking at food and scoffing food. But I like good food. Some people eat to … More 5 of Barcelona’s best tapas bars
Trump briefly passed through the UK at the weekend and let’s just say it was hard not to notice. Never mind the fact few of us actually saw the man himself, his presence certainly left a mark in the form of the spirited anti-Trump protests that took place in London. I spent most of Friday … More London’s Anti-Trump Protests: July 2018
Those in Hong Kong who are still holding on to the values of democracy and freedom of speech are facing a fast-approaching collision with Beijing’s communist regime. And it is impossible to examine Hong Kong politics outside the context of the 1997 Handover. … More Why Hong Kong’s 1997 Handover matters now more than ever
Last night in London I attended Amnesty International’s annual Tiananmen Massacre vigil which commemorates the horrific events of June 4th 1989 and the thousands of people (namely students) who died, many of whom remain unidentified. Each year the London vigil draws together a combination of protesters and journalists who were in Tiananmen in 1989, mothers … More London’s Tiananmen Vigil: Why 1989’s Tiananmen Massacre still matters
