Special time at L'Osier

If you want to join a really nice French restaurant in Ginza, how about going to the “L’Osier”


It is a French restaurant that was established in 1973.


Its superior ambiance was created by Pierre-Yves Rochon, a designer who is world-renowned for his luxurious spaces. He has worked on many five-star hotels, top-class restaurants, and other chic establishments. The restaurant’s vision was refined down to the keywords of, “White,” “Gold,” “Transparency,” “Glass,” and “Light.” With these keywords as his guide, he has created a truly luxurious space.



The future traditions of L’Osier will be cultivated by new executive chef Olivier Chaignon and the staff that has continually refined its exemplary hospitality since the restaurant was first opened.




             Have a special time with amazing dish and luxurious space!

SENTOU ;-)


Hi-ya

It’s still chilly out side I’ve been waiting for spring so badly.

I feel winter is way too long.

Here is another tip for how to spend long winter in Japan!

 

GO TO SENTOU(銭湯) to warm up your body and spend chill out evening with locals.

SENTOU is basically a paid public bath. recently Some place has sauna as well.

There are a lots of SENTOU in Tokyo.

They first appeared in the Edo period and have been enjoyed by people since then.

 

Women and men are separated.

Normally towels and bath amenities are NOT provided.

So you need to take them yourself.

The uniform fee is 450Yen (for adults ) in Tokyo

Tokyo is really modern city though this would be one of the places you can still feel old time of Tokyo.

 

The nearest SENTOU from BUREAU GINZA is below.

寿湯(KOTOBUKI-YU

 
Address 6-12-4 Tsukiji Chuo-ku Tokyo ( Near Tsukiji Honganji)

Tel 03-3541-0851

Open 15:00-24:00

Close Sunday and national holiday

 

I think would be your new experience ;-)

 

Cheers !

International food store near Shinagawa station

It is easy to miss that there is a "Kaldi Coffee Farm" on the bottom floor of Wing east (Shinagawa station, Takanawa exit). After going down the escalators just take a left and you will find it hidden in the corner. As the name suggest, it has a lot of varieties of coffee and coffee beans but you will be surprised what you are able to find when it comes to international confectionaries and foods. They always manage to make there stores very cosy and they normally give you a small cup of coffee before entering the store. It is a small store but you can find yourself spending way more time than you first intended.

Many international brands for cookies, chocolate, nuts, pasta, olives, olive oils, honey etc. are represented. You might even be lucky to find that thing you were craving but did not think you could get in Japan. They also have a small wine selection where you can find some good bargains so check that in too!

TOKYO MOTOR SHOW 2013

In the end of November 
Tokyo is having its 23rd Tokyo Motor show. 
The show includes passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, vehicle bodies, parts, machinery & tools, and automobile-related services.

The organizers theme "Smart mobility city" seems to be a continuing theme from the 42nd Tokyo Motor show in 2011. 
The exhibition is said to, 

 "...let you experience the future society and lifestyles – created through the collaboration among automobile manufactures, housing, telecommunications, various industries and research organizations."

You can read more about Smart mobility city here: http://smc.tokyo-motorshow.com/en/ 

There is normally more concept cars than actual production car introductions which is the reason why the auto press see the show as one of the motorshow's big five (along with Detroit, Geneva, Frankfurt and Paris). 

When: November 23 (Sat.) - December 1 (Sun.) 
(Nov. 20 - 22 being press/special guests days)

Where: Tokyo Big Sight (3-11-1 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo)

Homepage: http://www.tokyo-motorshow.com/en/
