Food Fashionista feasting in Tokyo all week…

I am in Japan eating, drinking, eating, shopping, eating and eating some more. In every corner, down every basement and train station, in the department stores and hotels, and on every street, there is the most delectable cuisine from all parts of the world to be found in Japan. It is no surprise why there are more Michelin starred restaurants here in Tokyo than any other place in the world, including gastronomy capital, Paris. The choices here for the finest cuisine and desserts are endless. You will find many of the top Parisian chefs with flagship restaurants and bakeries here in Japan. Although I call this a home away from home, I still find myself in awe and wonder at Japan's culinary advancements and traditional techniques used in every day life. On one street, you will find old world Japanese cuisine from the Edo period, and a few steps away, a Chanel boutique with a premier Alain Ducasse restaurant. The Japanese culture as I mentioned in a previous posting is food obsessed and that is why I just absolutely love it here and feel right at home.

All this week, I will have updates on Twitter and will also be sharing all my pictures with you all on Food Fashionista in this next week.
