Fine Sushi dinner in Tokyo


“Sushi” is one of the attractions of Japan,I think.
Few months ago,one guest of Andon asked us to make a reservation for a sushi restaurant “Kanpachi” in Okachimachi.When he came back from the restaurant,he told us many good opinions of the restaurant.He was really satisfied. From then on,we sometimes recommended it for our guests who would like to experience nice sushi dinner and everyone really enjoyed it : )

However,I’ve actuary had never been the restaurant and I finlly visited there with other staffs today.
It’s located near Nakaokachimachi station for Hibiya line,just 5 min walk from the station.
First,I really liked the entrance which looked like a old Japanese wooden house.The inside of the restaurant was rather small,but quite cozy and interior decorations were amazing.
We sat counter seats and could see a cook making some beautiful sushi.It looked like an entertainment.

Although he couldn’t speak English at all,he could communicate and satisfy the guests who are from abroad because he was extremely friendly and kind : )
I really enjoyed their sushi and also chatting with the staff.
I was so full,however,the cost was about only 3000yen per person.It’s really worthy to visit!

Look this beautiful sky!! It was a nice day. I often went back to my home town “Kawagoe” which is in Saitama prefecture. It’s about 1 hour from Tokyo by train, quite close. It’s very popular city in Japan. If you have time and want to visit somewhere different city from Tokyo “Kawagoe” is a good place ; ) As you can see the first picture of Kawagoe city, there aren’t telegraph poles because in October we have a big traditional festival, called “KawagoeMatsuri”. During the festival, many floats will go through around this area and those are more than 8 meters high so we needed remove them otherwise a man had to be on the top of a float to move the electric wires by their hands. It’s very dangerous.  
There are lots of traditional shops in Kawagoe, ”Kameya” is a one of  famous japanese sweets shop. 

I don’t go often but when we have something special I go with my mother. It’s very good for gift and souvenir. 
何か特別な事がある時に母と買いに出掛けます。 贈り物やお土産にとても人気があり、よく利用します。
This is their original one. It’s shaped turtles because their name “Kameya”(Kame) means turtles so it’s their symbol. I really love it! It tasts similar to Dorayaki(sweet small beans between sponge cake).
これはオリジナルの亀の形をしたどら焼きです。「亀屋」のシンボルです。 普通のどら焼きの味ですが、この形が可愛くて大好きです。
If  you visited Kawagoe, please try some food made from sweet potatos such as Ice creams, cakes, beers, chips and  more. Kawagoe is famous for sweet potatos too.

Amazing Restaurant


I went to dining restaurant “Alice’s the labyrith of fantasy dining”.
This place is located at Ginza.
They were based on “Alice in the wonderland” and “Gothic&Lolita” as a concept.
All the waitresses wear clothes of Alice.
Food was casual French and Italian the based on Japanese material but Almost foods and drinks are related to a story of Alice.
What can you see these pictures? These are Cheshire Cat of Pai and Mad Hatter’s hats and White Rabbit of Sweets :)
It’s sooo cute and I love them very much. I tried the other menu too and every thing were nice.
The entrance of the restaurant seemed to become an opening of the picture book, and it seemed to be amusement park.
Please check this URL address :
There is English menu and some forigner’s guest as well!
I recommend to go there for something special party or anniversary :)
”不思議の国のアリス”をコンセプトにした「fantasy dining 迷宮の国のアリス」というレストランへ行ってきました。すべての作りがとてもかわいく入り口からすでに物語の中になっていて、これからストーリーが始まるという感じで、遊園地に来ているような気分でした。
