Our Story


This blog started out as a dedication to the gastronomical mecca that is Tokyo. During my three-year stay in this bustling city I have had the privilege to sample some of the world’s best cuisine. Unfortunately my time in Tokyo has come to an end and I will soon be starting another food blog elsewhere in this world. However, I have asked a friend who still resides in Tokyo and loves food as much as I do to continue posting. I hope you will enjoy his posts.

If you need travel tips from everywhere else in the world please feel free to rummage through my suitcase at http://www.biancasuitcase.com

  1. Hi there.

    I’m founder of http://www.walkedthru.com – which is actually a blog community. We’re currently recruiting bloggers, of all subjects and professions to contribute.

    We have kindly been referred to yourselves by the JapanTourist Blog, in which they said you have previously contributed.

    And we’re glad they did because I think your blog is a fantastic example of what we are looking for – it is fun, specific, informative, and well written, with great imagery.

    We already have a Miami food, a korean food and baking blog are think that your Tokyo Food blog would be a fantastic addition!

    So with that I would love to invite you to visit our community, and to ask you if you would like us to list your blog under WalkedThru Tokyo Food perhaps?

    Hi Bianca. Just found your blog through the travel section of the BBC site. Will be in Tokyo in a couple of month and your posts definitely help putting together an itinerary. Mouth watering! Thanks for sharing all this.

        Hi Bianca,

        I’m a 21 year old who is going to be in Tokyo for 2 weeks alone this September. Do you have an restaurant suggestions that wouldn’t be too awkward to eat alone at for lunch or dinner?


      2. Bianca says:

        In Japan its common to eat alone so it shouldn’t be a problem anywhere….

  4. Hi Bianca! What a fantastic blog! I’ll be in Tokyo for a couple of days in March and would love to know which restaurants or cafes you think I should visit. It’s my first trip to Tokyo! 🙂 Cheers, Grace.

    Hi Bianca,

    I love your bog how it intro the restaurants. Actually, I am planning to go to Tokyo for only a 4 days. I wonder within these 4 days, is there any a MUST I need go? There are too many good ones that I could not make up my mind. =)

    1. Bianca says:

      Hi cindy ! Thanks for dropping by my blog. Is there any particular food who are interested in? Sushi, ramen, teppanyaki ?

      1. Cindy says:

        Hi Bianca, thank for your replied. =) Actually i don’t have any particular thing looking for. Since most of the restaurants in Japan are good.
        For Shabushabu, I used to go to SHABUZEN but knowing that it already closed down. Maybe want to find sth similar.
        For ramen & sushi, I usually go to Tsukiji Market. Ramen – CHUKASOBA Inoue, Sushi – Kiyomura.

    2. Afra says:

      Hi Cindy, Shabuzen is not closed down yet. They still have the shops running in Ginza Core 2F and B2F. For Shabu-shabu try Imafuku or Moritaya. Its one of my favorite.

    This is amazing. And I also looked at your suitcase. I wish that the food photos could be a little zoomed out so I can appreciate the portion size, but I understand that is also just my own personal preference.
    How on earth are you able to afford such fine dining and travel?! Amazing!

    1. Bianca says:

      Thank you ! Let’s just say I’m really grateful for all the food and travel that I am able to experience. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
