2014, 2015, Japan, Tokyo

Living In Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo is the world’s most populous metropolitan area and is the capital city of Japan. While in Tokyo proper, I have lived in two different wards, the Shinagawa-ku and the Suginami-ku.



This is where I stayed when I had my final job interview last July 14, 2014. I came thru Jetstar Airways from Matsuyama, Ehime. Gotanda is a busy neighborhood in Shinagawa ward located between Meguro and Oosaki. Strolling along the streets with the cool, crisp air is my happy past time.


Yutaka-chou, Togoshikouen is where I initially lived in Tokyo. I stayed here for almost 4 months, August to December.

Oimachi Station

The long escalator ride to Rinkai Line is simply adventurous. I had to go through 3 to 4 long escalators going down. Oimachi means big city.


Ogikubo in Suginami-ku is my second home in Tokyo. I lived here from December 7, 2014 to May 2015, around 5 months.


This is where I worked in, Ebisu, Shibuya-ku. Shibuya  is one of the twenty-three city wards of Tokyo. It includes Harajuku, the known fashion center of Japan particularly for young people. Shibuya’s crossing is known as one of the world’s busiest street.


Shinjuku is one of the 23 city wards of Tokyo and Shinjuku Station is the world’s busiest railway station. While on the way to the office, I change line, from Chou line to Yamanote line at this station.

Meguro Catholic Church

I oftentimes drop by Meguro Church before going home. I sometimes attend mass here at 12 noon on Sundays.

Saint Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church

This is where I oftentimes attend mass on Sundays ‘coz it’s the Catholic Church closer to Ogikubo house. This is 1 minute walk from Yotsuya Station.

Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower  is the world’s tallest, self-supported steel tower and 13 meters taller than its model, the Eiffel Tower. It has a paid observatory.


This is a district in Central Tokyo famous for its many electronics shops and  and many shops and establishments devoted to anime and manga. This is where I bout my Macbook.

Ippudo Ramen

With thousands of ramen restaurants scattered throughout Tokyo, this is the one I love the most. It originated in Fukuoka, Japan, expanded internationally and has a branch in Manila. I love the spicy Ramen for which we can specify the level of spicyness.  There are also variety of condiments and side dishes so you can mix up the flavors.

KFC Twister

I love the KFC twister in Japan. I find it much better than the twister in the Philippines.


It is a low-price Japanese chain of Italian restaurants. My favorite is caramel chicken paired with spaghetti.

Narita International Airport

I arrived last August 2014 to live in Tokyo thru this airport. As of 2013, Narita was the second-busiest passenger airport in Japan after Haneda Airport and is second as World’s Best Airports for Baggage Delivery by Skytrax 2015 World Airport Awards.

Haneda International Airport

I went home to the Philippines last May 23, 2015 thru this airport. It is crowned as 4th world’s best airport at the Skytrax 2016 World Airport Awards
