    MOS Café Nishi-Ginza

    Great Japanese burger shop!

    Great Japanese burger shop! Even all my friends from North America love it. The only cons are the size of burger and the serving size of fries are bit too small.

    Paradise for kids

    There are tons of different toys, such a paradise for kids and grownups like me and my friends! We spend hours just to browse items and couldn't finish seeing them all. Amazing.

    Ginza Hirai

    Great Japanese lunch!

    I just tried their popular "Lunch Hakomeshi" today. The Hakomeshi, rice topped with fillet of anago (seawater eel) and beautifully shredded Japanese style thin omelet, comes with crispy vegetable pickles and miso soup. The anago was cooked very right; it was so tender and tasty with absolutely no undesired flavor. Everything on the tray was good! Surprisingly, it's offered for 1,000 yen, but we should know that they serve only 20 Hakomeshi per day!

    China Garden Ginza Qi Lin

    Great Chinese foods!

    If you are looking for a place for authentic Chinese cuisine, please try Ginza Qi Lin. My recommend, just like so many others, is Mapo Tofu. The harmony of the thick, rich sauce, Okinawa-style tofu, and the real Szechuan pepper is just perfect.

    Starbucks Coffee Ginza Marronnier-dori

    Huge Starbucks!

    For most Americans Starbucks is a place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and maybe surf the net, or meet a friend to work on a homework assignment. Generally it's a pretty chill place to hang. The average Starbucks seats about 12 to 25 people depending on the location. The Ginza Starbucks is a two story building with seating for around 200 people!!



    I was amazed at the size, and wondered why it would be so huge. It has a secondary coffee bar upstairs as well. When we were there, the place had from 10 to 25 people spread out through the house. The main coffee bar downstairs did a brisk business since its in the midst of a large business district, but many just grabbed coffee and hoofed it. ...until Saturday! OMG you never say such a bustle as the Ginza Starbucks on the weekend! This place is packed! Clearly Tokyoites love coffee as well as I do, because it was really challenging to find a place to sit!



    You can of course enjoy the great quality of Starbucks coffees, pastries are slightly different- lending themselves to local tastes. Prices are high, if you balk at paying domestic Starbucks prices you will be in shock at what a Tokyo coffee will cost! Still, I am not starting my day with brown swill, and tea is NOT a fog cutter for me. So gimme that grande french roast and pass me the loan papers to pay for it.

    TOKYU HANDS, Ginza

    Fun fun fun!!!

    I'm a pretty hardcore crafter, so when I learned that there was such a place as Tokyu Hands, I put it at the top of my "to do in Tokyo" list!



    The Ginza store (there are several locations) is a smallish TH, only four floors... but there is a LOT packed into those four floors! There are materials and tools for a wide variety of crafts, hobbies and DIY projects. There are a lot of unusual materials to be had, so if you are a crafter, looking for something interesting drop by and poke around. I so wished I could bring home some tubes of lacquer, but it is not legal to ship via air freight. :(



    The store also has a nice assortment of stationery and phone gadgets, luggage, books and a full culinary section where they hold demos from time to time.



    If you make it out to Shibuya there is an even larger Tokyu Hands with a woodworking supply, full fabric section, and housewares. Such fun from such basic shopping. This is my kind of store!

    Favori

    We loved this place!

    Although a bit pricey, the quality of this establishment is fantastic. The decor is rustic, as though you had just entered a tavern established in the 1500s. Funky music playing, lots of locals stopping in after work. An amazing array of Belgian beverages and some really tasty food on the menu.



    We visited Tokyo in November, so there were a few rainy nights. Stopping into Favori for a couple pints and some hot stew was a cozy treat.
