Noma will reportedly close down completely in Copenhagen and the entire restaurant staff, chef Rene Redzepi included, will transplant themselves to Tokyo for two months.

A LONG TIME IN COMING
What's with all these famous chefs going on their own versions of a Travelife, anyway? I've just heard that the Roca brothers of equally famous El Celler de Can Roca in Spain, may soon be leaving Girona on a world foodie tour themselves.
The tour is dubbed "Roca & Roll World Tour 2014."

It's actually something that chef Yoshihiro Rene has been thinking about, ever since he first journeyed to Tokyo at the invitation of chef Murata of Kikunoi.
Kikunoi is one of the best restaurants in Japan, and it has a main restaurant in Kyoto and a branch in Tokyo.
NO ONE TRAVELS LIKE US.
OR EAT LIKE US.
OR WRITES LIKE US.
Travelife Magazine is perhaps the only magazine in Asia to have written in-depth about meals in both Noma in Denmark and Kikunoi in Japan.
Foodies in Japan are divided as to which one is better -- the Kyoto restaurant or the Tokyo restaurant.
Anyway, finally, chef Rene's idea has become a reality.
How lucky for Tokyo residents like myself.
And if you live outside Japan, better book early and plan a Travelife to Japan...
