Before coming back to Canada I stayed in Tokyo for several days as I wanted to try some activities, and one of them was staying in a capsule hotel because I thought the experience to be very much like Japan!

I stayed in the Millennials in Shibuya and it was really interesting. I would like to share some photos of my stay at a Tokyo capsule hotel during COVID-19 times.

First of all, it was really quiet (of course!). For the women's floor, I only saw 2-3 other customers there.

The great part of this hotel is that they also have a good co-working space. So if you are staying in Tokyo for business, it's a good idea to stay here.

First, you will get the ipod to control your space. You can change the lights and how you would like to recline the bed. If you need a timer to wake up, the bed will do it by turning on the light and reclining the bed to sofa.

This is the lounge on the 4th floor. You can get coffee 24 hours a day and in the morning, you will be served a bag of bread.

If you like beer, a daily happy hour provides free draft beer every day from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

There is a small kitchen on the same floor too, just in case you need it.

And this is the co-working space on the 3rd floor. They even have private meeting rooms on the floor if you need one.

 Now, this is the sleeping floor. Basically you get this tiny space. 

You can put your luggage below the bed as there is a sliding panel underneath the bed that allows you to store your suitcase under the bed.

This is the shower space.

Wash room on the sleeping floor.

 You can do laundry if you need.

Overall, I enjoyed the stay and it was really interesting to think about the spaces of the modern city.

You can make reservation through their website or any booking website.

There is a special place in my heart, and my mouth, for ramen. I love it! Now as we are preparing to launch our own new healthy version, ABO Ramen, I’d like to share a bit of the inspiration for its creation as well as bring light to the style of ramen that I grew up eating in Kyushu.

There are many regional varieties of ramen throughout Japan. The table below shows a basic breakdown of the ramen styles from the north of the country to the south. This list is not exhaustive as I may have missed some, and experimentation is going on all the time.

When I think about introducing Japanese food to North America, I was always wonder why curry-pan is not here yet, in a major way. Most of the street-styled Japanese food, such as ramen, karaage, okonomiyaki, takoyaki have similar attributes. It contains high fat, strong UMAMI and sometimes it is rich in carbohydrates.
