Curry Ramen in Asakusa

My friend Matti who is Finnish-American had his last day in Japan so we wanted to eat something special and I happened to see a limited time offer of Curry Ramen.

It was actually very good 😀 When I get back to Tokyo I need to have it once more.

Doesn’t that just look delicious !

The waiter took a photo of us and you can see that cool advertising poster in the back as well.
That’s myself, Matti and Juan ( I think it is written like that 😀 )
He didn’t want to be in the photo and I wasn’t sure how he felt that I would post it here so I blurred him a bit 😀

After my friend left to Narita international. I went back to the hostel to clean my bed area a bit since my fiance was arriving to Tokyo that same day.

In the evening I took my girl to my favorite bar at Asakusa called err.. Shot music bar asakusa (or something like that). When I get back to Asakusa I will make a video for you to find it since it is kinda hidden in a small side street second floor.

ちび..。ラメンとおにぎり 

These photos I took on that same day we went to the lake Towada but these I took with my sony. I was going to put these on the same post but kinda forgot about these photos.

We ate ramen this day like pretty much everyday we did ! Our lovely routine in Aomori was a delicious ramen and Onsen (I personally wished that everyday could be like that).

I like to sit on tatami in the restaurants I go in Japan!

Here it is ! our room at the Ryokan we stayed at! We were there two nights, it was not bad at all considering it’s price which was about 6000yen a night and it had a goodish onsen downstairs and very close to the Kyoto station (about 3 min walk) ps. Sorry that it is quite messy ! was too lazy to clean for a quick photo.
