Japanning – with Elle Decor US

It’s articles like this in the US Elle Decoration magazine that MAKE ME WANNA GO TO JAPAN SOOOOO MUCH!

Here’s their (edited) list of to-do’s…wish, wish, wish I was doing them:

Eat sushi at dawn. At Tsukiji, the world’s largest fish market (www.tsukiji-market.or.jp), take in the ­bustling stalls and auctions, then head to tiny Sushi Dai for breakfast (5-2-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, 3-3547-6797).

Rikugien, 6-16-3 Hon-Komagome, Bunkyo-ku; 3-3941-2222: Traditional Japanese garden with serene strolling paths, teahouses, and a pond.

Ueno Park, Taito-ku, 3-3833-0030: Home to several museums, including the Tokyo National Museum, and aglow with cherry blossoms in the spring.

This would be the sound-track:

Hotel Okura Tokyo, 2-10-4 Toranomon, Minato-ku, 3-3582-0111; okura.com/tokyo: Impeccable service in a central location. Don’t miss the tea-ceremony room with views of the Japanese garden.
