Look how expensive fresh asparagus and green beans are in Korea! It’s disappointing. I regret taking these for granted in the past; they were plentiful for the picking where I grew up.

22 Things To Do in Tokyo, Japan

I came up with 3 Ps to describe Japan – more specifically, Tokyo. And they are “precise, pristine, and polite”. As a young, fanatical judo guy back in the day I quickly became enamored with Japanese culture but I never took the chance to visit. Well, I finally went and it is better when you’re older.

Tokyo is still a top travel destination in East Asia.  Let’s find out why.  Here are 22 things to do and see in Tokyo, Japan.

Drunken Master Bar & Bistro has tasty American-style Chinese food in a fun atmosphere. The service is stellar and they’re usually running some sort of special on food and/or drinks. It’s a good place to go to kick-off a night near Kyungsung University in Busan, Korea. 

Hours: Mon - Thurs: 18:00–02:00, Fri - Sat: 18:00–04:00, Sun: 18:00–02:00

Directions: Take the subway to the Kyungsung/Pukyeong University station, go out exit 3. Walk straight and then take the first right. Keep walking until you see CU convenient store on your right. They are located above it on the third floor.

Sushi Berry menu





Keeping in mind that I like American-style sushi, Sushi Berry (스시베리) is my favorite sushi restaurant in Korea. I enjoy all the rolls as they’re big and tasty. Rolls range in price from 3,500₩ to 8,000₩. Check menu picture above.

The customer service is attentive and the chef speaks perfect English.

Two Taco Bell franchises came and failed in South Korea in the early 1990s –but since 2010, Taco Bell has been thriving in Seoul. There are currently eight open locations.

I know a lot of people can say that fast food is “gross” and “overly processed,” but sometimes I really crave it. Taco Bell in Korea has a fun bulgogi taco that I love having whenever I’m in Seoul. Just hoping and praying for a long overdue location in Busan.


9 Examples of South Korean School Lunches

Lunchtime is an interesting one for me. It probably is for most foreigners if they choose the route of breaking bread in the cafeterias with their Korean co-workers. If I don’t sit with my co-teacher, it’s pretty much just me in my own world chomping away.

There are occasions when some teachers will try to formulate a sentence or two, but not often. Even then, at both schools I’ve worked at teachers all sit in the same spot each day so if noone around me speaks English it’s going to be a quiet year.

Nonetheless, I go to the cafeteria to eat. And school lunches in Korea have been a delightful surprise for me. Why surprise? Because compared to the concoctions they call school lunch back home in America, these lunches are DELIGHTFUL.

The difference can be summed up in this way: natural vs. synthetic.
