For some reason, Japanese people are very strict and polished with their hands and ladies spend fortune on nail art which I find absolutely ugly and disgusting. They love having pearls and stones on their nails and bright sculptures, I find this dirty and doubt they can cook or do daily chores with such hands
My colleagues all go weekly at least. The other thing that I find strange is that all salons cut cuticules so short that you get infections. It happened to me twice and I changed salon 3 times with the same outcome. Not something I will miss
A bit outside of the heart of Roppongi, half way to Azabu Juban or the Grand Hyatt, lies this small wooden house stuck between 2 buildings and opposite a Konbini. you could walk past without realising. Ganchan has 20 seats, a counter and one table. 4 men run the place and they serve til late which is unusual in Tokyo (even in Roppongi).
I always take the Japanese course-meal, it is a set menu with 10 yakitori that they grill on a small stove in front of you, very tasty, you get appetizer, oyakodon and a dessert as well.
Best to book, I like it!
This was always among my favorite but it obviously grew stronger while living in Japan. The fish variety is amazing, the quality is impeccable
I could live with sashimi, seriously
Can you believe we still book by fax in Japan? Many hotels still do not establish contracts and count a fax as a valid confirmation, they stamp it as confirmed and return the fax.
At our largest hotel in Tokyo, 3 full time employees deal with the daily faxes
