Today you ate what has to be the best bowl of shoyu ramen of your life so far. You ordered it from a vending machine outside the ramen place. It was handed to you by someone hidden behind a drop-down curtain. You never saw the person’s face. This was at 8 in the morning.

For lunch, you had a delightful experience selecting your favourite pieces of sushi from a never-ending display passing by on the conveyor belt in front of you. You even had the chefs make you specialized pieces by ordering from the electronic tablet at your table.

For dinner you felt like spicing things up with a plate of Japanese-style curry rice from the famous Curry House CoCo Ichibanya. You then explored the out-of-this-world district of Shinjuku for the rest of the night.

It was a good day in Tokyo. You can now grab a train back to the hotel or splurge yourself by taking a cab. Be warned that Japanese taxis are notoriously expensive. On the plus side, the door opens and closes automatically for you.
