Welcome to my 15 Days in Japan
Since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by Japanese culture and so I chose this to be my first big trip. Here I will share as much of my experience as possible. Starting with the day I arrived from London to the Narita International Airport.
Food is art, and rightfully displayed on most restaurant's front-windows in plastic replicas.
I ordered a 3G SIM card online. Because home is where unlimited 3G is.
Coach ticket from the airport to Tokyo.
On this Ramen bar in Akasuka you place your order and pay on this machine. The waitress will then place a glass of water where you are meant to sit. And if you can't read the menu, like me, she will try her best to help you.

Shinjuku and Shibuya
As the night approached I had no particular plans or expectations, so I freely wondered in Shinjuku when Masa, a Tokyoite I have common friends with, invited me to hang out with him and his friends. To my surprise we went to an Irish pub, which Masa loves, and I had the most expensive pint of Guiness of my life for ¥1000. We then went for Nomihodai, an all-you-can-drink 2 hours session, at a Japanese bar in Shibuya, where my last photo was taken.
In Tokyo, you're never more than a few meters away from a vending machine.
