The Magic of Chocolate in Ishigaki Island – Okinawa

Cacao Market Ishigaki Okinawa

It’s Halloween tomorrow so suddenly I would like to jump to another place – Ishigaki Island in Okinawa which I have stopped posting a while ago but actually I haven’t finish writing it yet. (It often seems to have a long way to go for each place). Because Halloween is coming! So I guess it would be great to post something related which is chocolate!! Probably you have prepared lots for kids – trick or treat tomorrow! 🙂

If you have read my previous posts of Ishigaki Island (if not just click to the side bar), though it is a small island but lots of exciting things to do and eat! There are a few dessert places which I highly suggest to go after dinner or a place to chill. Unlike normal dessert store, it looks more like a magical chocolate factory to me! and interior looks like a scenery in Harry Potter!

When someone mentioned about Okinawa, it reminds me all about the lovely sea and all the great seafood and fruits as well! Continue from previous page, the 3rd Okinawa post would definitely introducing the yummy fruit tart in OKINAWA in OHacorate in  – Urasoe shi. There are 5 branches in different location, we choice to visit the branch in Urasoe shi because it is located in minatogawa stateside town.

Just a bit background of minatogawa stateside town, as you may know from the history, due to the face that U.S military bases in Okinawa, hence there’s a minatogawa stateside town. It is used to be a hosting area for U.S members before returned to Okinawa. The lovely little houses had given a new lease of life which converted to lovely cafe, gift shops, wedding shops and restaurants. From the below photos, each of the little houses were repainted in various colours which resulted an ideal IG backdrop for tourist like me to check-in! 🙂

European backdated hotel in Sapporo -Hotel Monterey Review

Hotel Monetery Sapporo Japan

If you have ever seen the movie ‘Somewhere in Time’, this hotel looks like back to the 70s in the movie.  It’s a movie in 1972 which I haven’t born yet. This is one of the timeless and the best romantic movie I had ever seen. So backdate from my last year end trip in Hokkaido – Sapporo. It was quite rush and we only have 1 day to stay in Sapporo. The weather is pretty bad and it even delayed our schedule. Hopefully I can stay longer next time. Lucky enough we picked the hotel which is the closest to Shinkansen, it takes only  approximately 10 mins walkable distance.

Best_Pancakes_Tokyo_Flipper's_Travel

When someone ask what’s the best in Tokyo? I would definitely say they have various cosmetic skincare products, great food and of course their famous pancakes! Unlike the western pancakes – a thin layer with maple syrup.  I would like to introduce this lovely cafe offers pancakes that is super-fluffy and melt in your month instantly in Jiyugaoka 自由が丘- Tokyo.

A little background of Jiyugaoka before show you the inside of Flipper’s. Jiyugaoka is one of my favourite place in Tokyo. Unlike the cities, Jiyugaoka is a place where can ignored by the bustles and city crowds. There are lots of various cafes, restaurants and little shops in alleys. I love to spend my afternoon here almost 10 years ago with my boyfriend (my husband now!) while he was studying in Tokyo. There are lots of memories when I stepped here again after 10 years during my business trip! I love the ambience here,  people walk slowly, relax and enjoy their time just sitting at the bench. It is a great place to chill with friends in the afternoon. Anyways, let me introduce this place in my next post and sure you will love it too! Especially it’s not far from Tokyo! (just 15 mins from Shibuya station)

The Beauty of Sakura at Night – Kawazu

NIGHT SAKURA KAWAZU 河津櫻 Travel Japan Ito

Continue from my previous post of the Day Sakura, this post I don’t have much to write but to show you the night of blooming Sakura in Kawazu. As mentioned in the previous post, this was my first time visit in Kawazu and also seeing sakura in real life. Actually I visited the night sakura before the day time but I think would be better to show the Day one first as it give you a big difference from the night view. So here you go!

There aren’t many people (actually a few at the back), but since I arrived a bit late. Checked-in from Imaiso Hotel and just rush to the Kawazu station immediately after my dinner. As Night Sakura only last until 9:00 p.m! (you probably have to check out their schedule from official site) They will turn off the light so it’s impossible to take any photos. Lucky me I arrived at 8:30 p.m and I got exactly half an hour to record the beauty of night sakura.
