Yes in Japan team: DUVAL Sébastien on Twitter

You wonder about our life in Japan? Our inbound travel manager, DUVAL Sébastien, has started sharing his thoughts and adventures on Twitter (@sebastienplus) on 01 January 2016 for his family, friends and colleagues but kept the access open for all the fans of Japan… Have a look now then click the “Follow” button if you like what you see :)

You have questions about one of his photos, visits, suggestions, etc.? Tweet him in English, French or Japanese language!

The Yes in Japan team particularly recommends this Twitter account to those who know the basics of Japan, have already visited Tokyo and Kyoto, and prepare their second (third, fourth…) trip to Japan because Sébastien has been living in Asia for more than 12 years and often visits exceptional destinations, tastes diverse Japanese foods and tries various traditional activities!

Happy thanks to Yes in Japan: Japanese lunch and “Japanese paintings” shopping

A couple of French-speaking tourists in Tokyo e-mailed our Yes in Japan French manager (always glad to help people in trouble) to thank him for helping them order their lunch at a Japanese restaurant without English menu and without English-speaking staff then recommending Ebisudo Gallery near Jimbocho station (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) to buy beautiful “Japanese paintings” (ukiyo-e woodblock prints in fact) at a reasonable price. They found the art shop with our Get Japan map of Jimbocho area, loved the gallery and its shopkeeper, and bought 2 ukiyo-e :)
