Yokohama – The Seaside Town as the Precise Embodiment of Pleasantville – Part 1


One of the things that make Japan will never run out of visitors to come is because Japan doesn’t only have Tokyo to offer to the visitors.

As one of the areas that caught my heart, Daikanyama is not as big or as popular as Shibuya or Harajuku, but Daikanyama has their kind of attractive points which are different from what Shibuya and Harajuku have. So, today let’s explore this Shibuya’s stylistic, cozy, and serene neighbour, Daikanyama. Continue reading
