Why bend it like Beckham when you can ‘gram it like Beckham? While he may be done scoring points on the field, Beckham is giving new meaning to the term “goals” with his winning Instagram feed. Following his blockbuster post toasting the royal wedding, the soccer star and son Brooklyn jetted off to a Tokyo getaway—which he’s currently documenting on his marathon-length Instagram Story.

Based on the Instagram receipts, Beckham’s first stop was the invitation-only restaurant été. Owned by 28-year-old chef and owner Natsuko Shoji, the invite-only, single-table restaurant serves up savory and sweet delicacies inspired by fashion. “My peach cake is inspired by Chanel’s Matelassé bag,” 28-year-old chef and owner Natsuko Shoji recently told Vogue. The father-son duo, however, opted for Shoji’s only non-fashion-related dessert—a glass-domed mango cake in the shape of a rose.

Next, Beckham stopped by the Yayoi Kusama Museum, swiftly putting to shame that Infinity Mirrors pic you probably posted last fall. After snapping a shot of Kusama’s mirrored "Pumpkins Screaing About Love Beyond Infinity," father and son posed beside a giant pink and gold pumpkin.

After capturing some museum-quality sushi pics at Michelin-starred spot Umi (which, despite its unassuming exterior, can run you $300 per head, according to The Infatuation), the Beckhams scored a photo with Japanese art star Takashi Murakami. Clearly trained in the art of Instagram, Beckham then moved onto the ultimate culinary photo opp at Wagyumafia, which reportedly serves the most expensive kobe beef in all of Toyko—$2,500 for 12 ounces. As Beckham puts it in one of the many Stories, all we can say is “Wow.”
