I came here during a shopping trip a few months ago and it was delicious. Just had another visit after arriving in Tokyo late - my taxi ride there and back was probably more than the meal but well worth it! The green pepper stuffed...More

The best Yakitori around. Very cool Japanese restaurant. Good is excellent for the price. Get there early because it fills up quick! They have an English menu and give you appetizers that more Gaijin prefer.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
