Did you know that there are 5.52 MILLION vending machines in Japan, that's basically 1 vending machine for every 5 people...

I mentioned Japan Wireless in last week's Tokyo post and I'm pleased to say that they have kindly offered a discount code to my readers who want to use their service. If you're planning a trip to Japan I strongly recommend hiring a mobile router from Japan Wireless for your trip. Wifi hotspots are scarce in Japan (unless you plan to spend your time in Mcds or Starbucks), and purchasing a SIM card is quite costly with very limited data. Japan Wireless on the other hand, offer unlimited wifi with their mobile router and is incredibly fuss free - you literally switch on the router and you're good to go. Use code
vivi2017 for a 1000 yen (£7.00 gbp) discount on their website!


Tokyo vlog coming soon!

Tokyo with Japan Wireless


Quick snaps of life in Tokyo so far...

This city may have all the hallmarks of of a feverish metropolis, what with its colossal skyscrapers, brilliant mutlicoloured (and often flashing) lights and subway trains bursting at the seams with people. Yet on the doorstep of all this hustle and bustle you are certain to find a temple, a place of quiet, of worship and meditation. Or you'll pass by adorable obachans in traditional dress, witness an old man grilling Japanese crackers over coal for sale at his market stall where the grainy black and white photo on display indicates that he's been doing the exact same thing for decades.

The polarities in this city are too numerous to count but everything just seems to fit... I'm so grateful to be in Tokyo and having Japan Wireless with me means that I'm able to navigate the feverish streets in Shinjuku, or the stillness at the Meji shrine with ease. If you're planning to visit Tokyo or Japan, a mobile router is invaluable to ensuring you don't get lost, or to understanding the symbolism behind a torii gate.  For me it's so that I'm able to stay connected with my friends and family back home.

VIVIYUNN X HK + vlog!!




I've put together a whistlestop tour of the last 2 weeks in Hong Kong in the video above. As you can see, we've been eating and drinking a whole lot... This is mostly a catch up vlog so you can get a feel for what Hong Kong has to offer. Many more episodes to come!

I'm currently in Japan and having to gesticulate profusely in lieu of my lack of Japanese language, so watch this space for content from Tokyo! If you have any recommendations for sight seeing/eating/shopping/cool places in Tokyo, please leave me a comment below.
