Although I was born and raised in Brazil , I've been living in Japan for 22 years. I've been to many places around the country, as my Instagram feed reveals, but I know the Akihabara area in the city best. I enjoy meeting new people, travelling, exploring new and different places, and participating in tea ceremonies. I speak English , Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese . I'm always on the search for the best spots for photography , and I'd like to share some of them with you. An interesting fact about me is that I've been assembling my PCs by myself since 1999. I also enjoy reading cyber punk novels, especially the ones by William Gibson, because they feature lots of quotations of the Japanese culture. Tokyo can be described as a city of contrasts where traditional shrines blend with futuristic high rises, shopping alleys, cat cafes and sometimes even rickshaws.

Our 4 hours with Blanka was like meeting an old friend for lunch! We immediately felt comfortable with her and really loved the variety and quality of foods that were chosen; we even tried natto! It was evident from the beginning that Blanka wanted us to try very authentic foods and not just the usual touristy restaurants; we ate where the locals ate which really gave us that authentic experience. We would definitely use City Unscripted again; make sure you ask for Blanka!!
