    Tokyo, Japan

      • Famous for its countless tiny, local eateries, quirky subcultures and friendly locals, Tokyo has a distinctive character with a unique ability to balance the old and new. Notably the setting for Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, stylist Dee Jenner guides us through the neon lit streets of Tokyo.


      • STAY


        Airbnb, Shibuya.

        The Shibuya apartment is a true representation of Japanese culture, with its practical and minimalist features mixed in with nature materials and tones. In a city that is known for its lack of space, you are sure to find the privacy without being far away from the hustle and bustle. With its curated zen-like decor, use this space to recharge before you explore the city.


        Andaz Tokyo, Toranomon Hills.

        Designed to reflect the contemporary Japanese style, Andaz is an architectural fantasy. Housed on the top floors of the 52-storey Toranomon Hills skyscraper, it is completed with high ceilings with washi paper partitions, lanterns, latticed panels and abstract sculptures. Go down to the 37th floor and you can treat yourself to innovative treatments at the AO Spa using pure herbs, oil and fruits.

    • EAT


      Harajuku Gyoza.

      At Harajuku Gyoza, it's back to the basics with a simple gyoza menu that can be served either steams or fried. Once you’ve chosen your gyoza preference, you can add a side to compliment your meal like the miso cucumber, which is highly recommended. A cheap and delicious option, wash it down with an ice-cold Asahi beer and enjoy a stroll in the back streets of Harajuku once you’re done.


      Uobei Sushi.

      Uobei isn’t your typical sushi train where you find the plates move along past you. Not having to worry about waiting for the plate to come back round, here you order on a small screen and watch it whizz out, stopping right in front of you. A perfect introduction into the crazy and fun gimmicks of Japan, but also does not disappoint with the sushi itself.


      Omoide Yokocho.

      Literally translating to Memory Lane, this smoky alley is full of tiny ramshackle eateries and bars that seat about 10 people. There are no menus and no English spoken but if you can manage to find a spot in between the locals and succeed in ordering, you'll sample some amazing Yakitori and have a good laugh in the process.

    • VISIT


      Birthdeath.

      An amazing vintage store in Shibuya with a diverse mix of eras and pieces. Whether it be a sleek 70s disco jumpsuit or a white cotton nightgown from the 1900s, you will be in for a vintage treat. Not only are the pieces at the store inspiring, the shop girls are too with their mix-match outfits and cool attitude.


      Hakone.

      Not technically in Tokyo but once you're done eating and drinking your way through the city, take a holiday from your holiday by escaping to the picturesque Hakone via the fast train for a day trip. Here you can look forward to the serene view of small towns, natural landscape like the backdrop of Mt Fuji whilst enjoying a traditional onsen experience continued from the Edo period.


      Little Soul Cafe.

      Said to own around 15,000 records, this little bar opens at 9pm each night playing a mix of soul and funk from their large vinyl collection. Situated in the music district of Shimokitazawa, it is a regular spot for artists and collectors - both local and foreign, making this bar the place to visit when the sunsets for a long night of great cocktails, music and conversation.
