Our familiar routine. A few hours in the British Museum followed by okonomiyaki in Abeno. Surprisingly filling for something so small. Oishii.

Loved the whole experience of this restaurant where they cook the Japanese pancakes in front of you on a hot plate.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
