Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsune:
In my hometown Tokyo, my favorite place is Happo En. A peaceful place in the middle of a big city, the garden is really cool, you can enjoy the beauty of Japanese tradition in any seasons. Their tea house is amazing!

Zur Letzten Instanz offers thebest schnitzel I have ever had. They say it’s the oldest place in Berlin, from the 1600s. All I know is it’s rude to order 2 schnitzels at once for yourself. Just order one at a time!

I love to get together with my friends and have Sunday brunch at Nobel Bopel, a small and charming cafè with a retro vibe at Møhlenpris. Make sure to show up early, their brunch is very popular.

Sushi Gari on the Upper West Side offer super fresh, high-quality fish prepared by master chefs. Try the salmon sushi with warm tomato on top - its delicious!

Copenhagen doesn't have any rooftop bars, but there's a cemetery located right in the middle of my neighborhood, Nørrebro, called Assistens Kirkegårdenand it's one of our favorite spots in the city. It's almost like a gothic maze, without the vampires and zombies, though you should be aware of flashers lurking behind the gravestones.
