Head for the Tokyo Ramen Street in the Tokyo station (near the Yaesu exit) and queue up (mostly likely, there was always a line when I went) for a great bowl of Tsukemen ramen with the best (very thick) broth I’ve ever tasted. There is also a shop at Haneda airport to get a last bowl before leaving Japan.
This sushi bar is located in the Ritz Carlton – a friend gave me the tip to go here for lunch and it was great. Sitting at the counter you can watch the sushi master preparing your food while enjoying the scenic views (it’s on the 45th floor). There are also three other areas for Kaiseki, Tempura and Teppanyaki, but I haven’t tried them.
A nice place for drip coffee.
A design museum in Tokyo Midtown created by fashion designer Issey Miyake and architect Tadao Ando.
We didn’t know what to expect, but we were lovely surprised by this small bar stuffed with vintage computer games.
A coffee shop and roastery from New Zealand. I’ve tried a flat white and it was great. It is a bit off the grid, but the coffee and the nice building make it worth it.
I think this is my favorite museum in Tokyo. It is not too huge, so you see everything easily and the garden is quite a contrast to the city.
A small coffee shop run by an elderly gentleman who makes excellent coffee.
American pizza place in the basement of the H Beauty & Youth store. This one is great for a quick bite.
Great matcha latte and cookies. Even during the winter it is nice to sit outside next to heater for a short break.
