When you are driving through Tokyo, you just see the beginnings of Spring popping up here and there. The cherry blossoms are budding and starting to show its delicate pinkness to bring dashes of colour to the streets. This is one of the most beautiful times to be in Japan and the food that comes with the change in season is fresh and brings a warm smile to your face.
Japanese culture is bit of a funny one. “Kawaii” means cute, adorable, sweet… referring to anything from girls aesthetics, fashion to products. It has grown from a small subculture to mainstream culture of modern Japan. Today it is a multi-billion industry and one that has gone global to draw foreigners into Japanese culture.
I keep telling myself I need to go to visit more cultural exhibitions but rarely get round to it. That was until I saw an advert in Time Out Tokyo for a foodie exhibition at the very centrally-located Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall called “Japanese Culinary Immersion – L’art de Rosanjin“.
I had heard of the Lantern Bar at The Fullerton Bay Hotel from various sources as being a must place to go in Singapore. Situated right on the water-front, right next to its beautiful swimming pool, decorated with lush plants and plush outdoor furnishings, with a gorgeous backdrop of Marina Bay Sands in your view… you really cannot get better than this.
