Autumn is one of the most special seasons for sweet lovers in Japan. As I said other times, the seasons are very important and have a huge influence on food here. This happens in many countries, and with all seasons. But Autumn in Japan is the season of sweet potato! One of the favorite products for many Japanese and foreigners. Of course there are also other flavors characteristic of this time of year, such as chestnut and the famous Mont Blanc, which isn’t originally from Japan but is very successful among Japanese.

From Barcelona to Tokyo. Coffee & Adventure lover🌏☕️ 

I started to like Japan because of the anime, music and doramas, but after my first trip to the country I found what I love the most: traveling around, the culture and history. I have travelled a lot in Japan, but I still have many places to discover that I want to share with you🙋🏼‍♀️ Let’s discover Japan together!


Also, as a foreigner living in Japan for over 6 years I understand what kind of things are difficult when you move here and I want to help other people in the same situation that I have in the past.
