We start off with some exquisite Chinese, yes, Chinese food, before heading to the port city of Yokohama for the Yokohama Triennale. Everyone is excited because this year one of the directors is Akiko Miki, the curator of Benesse Art Site Naoshima.
The next day, we will wake up bright and early for a sojourn to Osaka for a meal with one of the most acclaimed young chefs in Japan before exploring the old capital Kyoto.
After steeping ourselves in culture, we should be able to sleep much better on the Shinkansen back to Tokyo so that we will still be conscious while waiting in line for the tuna auction at Tsukiji market. Sleep-deprived, we will recuperate with lunch at Sant Pau, helmed by the female chef with the most Michelin stars. If that still doesn’t wake us up, we probably need to take a Sunshower at the Mori Museum and add a strong dose of uniquely Japanese retail therapy.
We will start our final day at Tsutaya’s T-Site with breakfast at Ivy Place before popping over to possibly the most famous bookstore in Japan. Having over-indulged, we will conclude with tea tasting in the Zen-like surroundings of Sakurai.
