My first yakitori experience – and I liked it: Restaurant Yakitori No Meimon Akiyoshi (15. March 2020)

Yakitori is a Japanese way of preparing food where you order food on sticks which are then prepared for you and brought to you to eat off that stick. I decided to give the whole range of things a try and went for “beef tongue” (425 Yen) to start with which was actually quite tasty. […]

Tasty deep fried chicken in a place you wouldn’t expect to find it: Restaurant Zipang (15. March 2020)

When you are on Miyajima island, there are quite a few restaurants around but not that many are rated good respectively look like they are worth trying. The Zipang (which I only found out later that it’s called that way) was one which serves nice dishes. I went for the “deep fried chicken set” (880 […]

Hiroshima is an impressive city and you should definitely visit the Peace Memorial Park and the A Bomb Dome which both of kind you make you melancholic and give you an impression of what the Atomic bomb actually did. A remote one, a weak one, but at least a better one than when you just […]

Set breakfast option due to the Coronavirus: Garden Café @ Kobe Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers (14. March 2020)

Given Coronovirus measures, there was also no buffet for breakfast but a set menu for breakfast which consisted of “soup, ham, bacon, sausage, hashed potatoes, locally grown vegetable salad, fruits, yogurt, scrambled eggs, bread, and tea” plus … … rice if you asked for it (which I did). All in all, the breakfast selection was […]

Outstanding service and decent udon noodles: Restaurant Gourmet Kineya (13. March 2020)

Given the ‘dinner’ at the Sheraton Club Lounge was not satisfactory, I decided to hit a spot somewhere in its vicinity and ended up in the “Gourmet Kineya” which – I found out later – seems to be a chain across Japan. Given arrival was 10 minutes before their last order (7:30pm), I had to […]

Although the impacts of the Coronavirus are clearly visible in the Japanese society, a large part of it still works according to normal procedures with the exception that some sights are closed for visitors and clear announcements over public loudspeakers that you should wash your hands frequently. The Kobe Bay Sheraton Hotel & Towers decided […]

Traditional Japanese breakfast is not really my thing: Ekoin Temple (13. March 2020)

I was a bit skeptical about the breakfast as it contained quite a bit of things which I was not able to identify respectively which do not really fit into a breakfast in my personal opinion. But – considering the rice which you get with it – you have enough differently tasting things which make […]
