HOLIDAY/SHOPPING/FOOD GUIDE

***This is a work in progress***
Let me know if there are any problems/questions ^^;;

I get a lot of emails daily about suggestions for places to shop/eat in Tokyo or any of the countries i have been to. So i thought i would compile a list here ^^

Disclaimer: Clearly this is not a definitive list! I dont consider myself an expert..these are just based on my experiences!!!

Update [2/10/11] By popular demand, i have added a new category [online shopping sites]
