It’s Andres, from Boutique Japan.

This month’s postcard comes from Tokyo, Japan. Do you recognize this type of noodle?

Even though ramen gets a lot more press, Japan is also renowned for its soba and udon noodles.

The photo above was taken at a unique udon shop specializing in both fusion-style udon as well as traditional preparations. If you’re in central Tokyo near the brand-new Toranomon Hills complex, it’s a great lunch option!

Hit reply to this email and I’ll be happy to send you the shop information in English (here is a link to their Japanese-language website).

Japan Travel News & Insights:

If you were thinking about a Spring trip to Japan – and you haven’t booked your trip yet – it may be worth reconsidering!

Thanks to record numbers of visitors and unprecedented demand, we have basically stopped taking inquiries for travel this Spring, and are now considering inquiries from mid-May and later.

It’s definitely not too late to plan a trip for mid-May, June or later, but if you’re thinking about it we definitely recommend starting the planning process now.

Until Next Time!

As always, I’d love to hear what want to see us write about on our blog. If you have any ideas or requests, please hit reply to this email and let me know!

“I only have positive things to say about my experience with Boutique Japan Travel. They were everything a first time traveler to Japan would want. They were attentive to our needs and desires; they offered sensitive guidance when we needed it; and they were overall a pleasure to deal with. “I highly and without reservation recommend them and plan on utilizing them again in the future. A job well done!” – Harvey & Jan, Philadelphia
