Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum

Ramen is one of popular comfort food among Japanese. Back then, Muslim traveler might be hesitated to taste this dish because usually it was made from pork broth. But these days the number of Vegetarian Ramen and even Halal Ramen is increasing in Japan. One of the place to try Vegetarian Ramen is in Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum. There are 3 – 4 different option you can choose. Or if you are a big eater, why not try all? This museum is probably the most random/out-of-theme museum we’ve ever visited.

Karaoke Honpo Maneki Neko Yotsuya-3chome

As JE fangirls, January probably the best month for you to go to Japan as there are so many concerts from different groups being held. We managed to go to not just one, but three concert venue. Sadly we didn’t actually attend the concert as we couldn’t get the ticket (someday we will!). So for our consolation, we went for Karaoke and made our own concert, lol. This particular karaoke chain located in Yotsuya-sanchome, Shinjuku not only a place for having fun, but also they offer Halal menu for Muslim visitor.

Akomodasi: Hotel MYSTAYS Yokohama Kannai

Hotel MYSTAYS adalah salah satu chained hotel yang tersebar di berbagai kota besar di Jepang. Di Yokohama sendiri Hotel MYSTAYS ada dua, yang hanya Yokohama dan yang Kannai (hati-hati saat booking atau cari alamat, pastikan tidak tertukar). Kami menginap di Kannai karena posisinya yang lebih strategis, dekat dengan tempat-tempat yang rencana kami kunjungi.

Halal Bento: Taste & Discover Japan

3 more years to go to Olympic 2020, Japan effort to cater Muslim needs of Halal food has been increasing. Compared to our first visit in 2013, it is getting easier to find Halal Restaurant in Japan. But, when you go to off-beaten path then it’s almost impossible to find one. Worry not because now you can order halal bento if you had plan visiting a region with no Halal Restaurant available. We ordered bento from tdjapan.com for our trip to Miyajima, Hiroshima.
