A night at a resort for 50 bucks…

Okinawa is the Hawaii of Japan. I love living here and one of the winters I was able to hang out at a super fancy hotel for only 50$. I was so stoked. My friend found a deal for the Okuma Beach Resort hotel online. I wrote about this cool hotel stay in my Okuma Resort Review on Taiken. Check it out if you like.


The Japanese Carbonara Spagetti

Look at this beauty! I wanted to go for a pasta dish the other day when I met up for lunch with my friends at Joyfull. The Joyfull chain restaurants serve a whole lot of deliciousness and this was my first Carbonara Spagetti outside of Europe. It was quite good and the egg on top was quite different from what I am used to.

Staying healthy

My vitamins expired so I got some new ones from the local drug store. They cost me 3000¥, which is quite normal here. I usually don’t buy vitamins in Germany.  But most things are expensive in Japan. So these imports from America are the cheaper alternative.   

A Ramen Stadium

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven’t been posting for a while. I was trying to get over my sickness. I’m still a bit ill but hopefully getting better soon. Meanwhile: here is an article I published on the blog Taiken about the Ramen Stadium in Fukuoka. I hope you like Ramen, I wrote lots and lots about it!

CT Ice Coffee from Kaldi’s Coffee

January!!! It’s actually cold today but my friend brought some iced coffee and I had to try it. It’s for restaurant use so it’s already sweetened. You can find it at Kaldi’s coffee farm for 200¥ if you would like to try it. It’s so good! One of the best ones I had so far. I put some milk in it. Mhmmmm!

“Oldtimers”- the best Dutch licorice 

 My parents sent me this for Christmas! My favorite Dutch licorice. It’s super strong and flavorful. This will bring me through many weeks here in Japan where I don’t have access to European goods.

Have you ever tried licorice? Do you like it?

300¥ Curry lunch at ‘Pocket Money’

Do you like Japaneaw curry? It yes, this is the place for you. Okinawa has its own curry restaurant chain named Pocket Money. You can pay with your pocket change for the dishes, means you will get a lot for small money. 

Yesterday Pocket money celebrated 5 years of business and served Indo curry for 300¥.  It was so good!
