Nick's top 5 suggestions nearby Tokyo

What do you do on weekends?

If I wasn’t coaching my student’s athletes or preparing lesson plans, I would often take day trips to the local events and enjoy the festivals, exhibits, and firework displays year-round. You can enjoy parades with elegant decorative floats,  food stalls with every Japanese confection you can imagine. And if you’re lucky, you will get swept up in the local rivalries that pop up when the neighborhood floats square off in friendly competitions.

Favorite Restaurant?

Some of my favorite restaurants are Café High Times (best Hamburger in Japan) and Daidō Ramen Jōnai Shop (best ramen in the area), both in Tochigi city.

Which Japanese cities have you lived in?

I lived in both Tochigi city and Sano City in Tochigi Prefecture during my time in Japan.
