My Recent night market experiences – Tokyo Style – which is within a famous shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.
Tokyo Street – a unique shopping district based on Japanese traditional elements and modern facets of Japan’s dynamic culture and ambiance, which are similar to Ginza and Shibuya’s night markets. Located inside the Pavilion Mall (yes, it’s located at Level 6…inside a shopping mall), it is easily reachable by major public transportation like the Monorail and taxi. On my visit, I was armed with a Tokyo Street Tea Time passport voucher (in the form of a fan) that entitled me for an exclusive discount at the Tokyo Street Food and Beverage Outlet.
I slowly took my time to explore some of the different outlets located there ranging from “Mochi Sweet” that specializes in Japanese glutinous flour rice cakes, Fresh “Shimino” Japanese Crepes, Hokkaido “Ramen Santouka” for classic delicious ramen, “En Ginza Cafe” an authentic Japanese food cafe with a fusion of French cuisine, well known for its delicious freshly-baked bread and excellent aromatic coffee (I prefer the hot latte with Hello Kitty animated coffee art), and “Suki-Ya”, House of Pot for all-you-can-eat sukiyaki and shabu-shabu!
But the most important part of Tokyo Street is “TheClickShop” which sells Lomo cameras and accessories alongside the Food and Beverage retail outlet. Night market shopping will never be the same again for me thanks to Tokyo Street!
The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences. The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years. A port city, Osaka has retained its 'merchant' status with a battery of retail shops amid an area of cultural interest.

He calls himself Khalik Allah – a creator, a limitless, timeless, infinite being. He documents life as it comes and goes, as it hurts, as it glows inside the protagonists of his stories. His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak. Yet, he is capturing light in its purest form, reminding us that it lies in everyone’s eyes, within everyone’s self.
