Japan is a country well known for its tranquility and serenity. Perhaps not the whole land and maybe not for the entirely of its history but there are areas of its culture and society that are beyond reverent in stillness and quiet tradition.
Piccadilly Circus is an area of London well known for its buzz and excitement. Perhaps not every single street and maybe not for all the years it’s been there but there are areas that boast more exciting restaurants & world-class theatres than anywhere else on the globe.
Would you put these two together? Probably not and if you’re wondering what they have in common, I’ll let you in on a little secret – on the edge of Shaftesbury Avenue lies the Japan Centre. It’s not quite the placid and hushed corner of Japan that a voyage into the Land of the Rising Sun might actually afford but it is an excellent spot in which to pick up some beautiful Japanese pastries.
