Back to Ginza
Once again we didn't have anything planned because we thought it was gonna rain today. It ended up being a dry and wonderfully chilly day. Go figure. So what do we do? Eat of course! Sheesh. I really really really gotta go on a diet when I get home...
A couple of friends of mine recommended a cheap sushi joint called Midori Sushi Ginza. They warned me that there might be a line but it does move pretty fast. They open at 11, and this was the line at 10:55...I don't know if you could tell but this is where we're standing and it loops around comes back to the entrance
This is what the signage looks like...don't ask me for directions, we just got directions from yelp and they took us in some round about way. It shoulda been really easy but I don't know why it took us the way it did.
Not too shabby for all this sushi, 2 beers, a sake and two bowls of soup...the fish was really good
We were so full after lunch we took the subway to Ikebukuro and walked around the Sunshine City area. I had to look for some Hello Kitty tsum tsum's for my friend Kathy...success! So cute yah!
Later on at night it was time for dinner and Kathy had told me about a new complex that opened up at Ginza station, so we went to check it out.
It was pretty upscale but very nice. I was starving and we were craving something other than Japanese food (WHAAAA???). We saw a picture of Bearburger on the wall and it was a no brainer! It was really good but kinda pricey for burgers. The bill came out to ¥5100 for two burgers, fries and a beer
Up on the 11th floor you could go up to Kiriko Terrace. It was really beautiful up there, it was open aired so it was a bit chilly, but you had wonderful views of the city. Of course I didn't have my camera, I barely used it all day and now that I needed it, it was back at the hotel. Iphone had to do...
The terrace is split into two different rooms, green and water. If I remember I want to come back during the day to get some better pics
On the 6th floor there's Kiriko Lounge, it's also very nice but it was hot after coming down from up top
We're heading to Hakone early tomorrow morning so I gotta get to bed. See you tomorrow!
