After nearly traveling 24 hours, I’m finally in Japan. And I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…..
First meal in Tokyo. Completely vegetable based “sushi”. Thanks for dinner Nick. (Photo Credit: Amass Restaurant)
This is Nick leading us through the former Red Light district in Shinjuku. It is packed with 250 bars that are no larger than 10 square meters. Most of them are former brothels. Seeing that Nick writes about whiskey and other spirits for a living, we could not have been in better hands. You also have to be prepared for the headache that follows a night out with him.

Of course we end up at the Shrine of Whiskey bars. This gentleman is the Godfather of whiskey in Tokyo. Aside from being an amazing connoisseur of whiskeys, he plays old black and white movies with hip hop in the background.
The whiskey was going down a bit too easy at this point. (Photo Credit: Amass Restaurant)
I had to take it. Every single piece of food here is plastic. They even made plastic soup!
This is what I call multi-tasking.

First thing I see when you get off the train in Sapporo. Everyone loves Denmark. They had no idea what a tebirkes was. Yes, I asked for one. What a jerk, huh? (Photo Credit: Amass Restaurant)
