Nihonmura in Thonglor, Bangkok

That’s the corner of my street where I live in Bangkok. The sign on the sail of the boat reads: “Nihonmura” or in Chinese “Ri ben cun” (they are Chinese characters) which means Japanese village. According to a journalist friend of mine about 40,000 Japanese and Koreans are living my neighborhood Thonglor.

There are many Japanese and Korean restaurants here as well, which we have not started to explore as yet. But today we spend the time on our terrace with Italian food and Australian sparkling from Taltarni Vineyards with vineyards in the Pyrenees, and Heathcote, Victoria and in Tasmania.
