Tokyo is like a bag of mixed sweets when it comes to architecture

Tokyo is an international metropolis of format. The city ranges from ancient Japan that exudes silence and reflection to modern Japan, which runs at 300 kilometers per hour like the high-speed train Shinkansen.

The architecture of old Tokyo dates back to the Edo period from 1603 to 1867. The houses are small, they are often built of wood, the roofs are arched and you have no doubt that you are in Japan.

Modern Japan is a mixture of Asian and European architecture. Japanese architects design typical skyscrapers, office buildings, and public buildings.

While international fashion houses such as Prada and Louis Vuitton and many others design their own stores. There are shops that have several floors which highlight the exclusive brands.

The competition for the Japanese consumer is fierce, which is why international fashion houses also design their own buildings in the big city of Tokyo.

Will fresh fish still arrive in Denmark even though the borders are closed?

Yep, it does.

Although the government has closed down for people to travel in and out of Denmark this does not apply to food.

There are many supermarkets that have ordered extra goods so their stock is full of goods. Special stores such as fishmongers still get fresh seafood delivered several times a week from abroad.

It ranges from tuna in Japan to salmon from the Faroe Islands. However, the fishmongers may well find that the amount of tuna entering Denmark is less than it usually. This is not because the quantity of goods from the producers has decreased.

There are some food suppliers in Denmark who order fewer products from abroad at the moment. This is because the restaurant industry has been shut down for a period of time.

However, the most sought after items such as fresh salmon, marinated herring and other Scandinavian seafood will be found at the fishmongers.

What is your best tip if I am going to Japan?

I would say be sure to have plenty of cash.
Although there are more and more Japanese businesses that accept Visa card and Master Card there are still many shops and restaurants that prefer cash.

It is often shops where you can buy food, beverages or personal items that do not cost very much. Here I think of a spring water, cup of coffee, a little lunch or objects that cost less than $ 20.

You can expect that shops or restaurants outside tourist areas do not accept Visa card and it is regardless of the size of the amount.

Japan – one of the world’s best travel destinations!

One of the best countries to travel to even as a woman is Japan.

Almost nothing happens in the bad way. If I lose my purse filled with cash and credit cards on a street in Tokyo it will still there if I come back 2 hours later. No one has touched it.

Japan has a lot to offer culture, sights, food, architecture, shopping and Japanese garden.

If you are considering traveling to Japan, I can highly recommend the lecture ‘Get close Japan‘ for Japan is completely different from the rest of the world.
