Doesn't look the part from the outside, but tasty and good meals ( portion a little smaller) most certainly can be found in here.
The female staff are dressed like mid west grannies and the kitchen is a must see since the front is antique with a whole bustling real kitchen filled with modern chefs in the window behind that.
Although I took great care to select a weekday for our visit, the queues were still too long for some popular attractions.
When you compare this place to Hong Kong,the consolation is that at least there are none of the notorious Pinoy and Chinese queue cutters. Also,the Japs don't seem to mind even if they're 80 . Heck, they don't even grumble nor ask for a chair to sit down on . So just suck it in and join the leg breaking line will ya.
Cos everybody queues patiently in Tokyo Disneyland
even the China tourists. I'm not kidding.

Most people pack up and leave when night falls in Odaiba. But since we were already staying in the area, I can show you what there is, in the vast quiet area.
Linking Diver City to the corner of the beach area where a replica of the Statue of Liberty can be found, is this spot, where you can see both the Tokyo Tower and the Rainbow Bridge at the same time, it's a romantic spot which is a hit amongst dating couples.

Is this posh or what ?
Yea, that was the breakfast I more or less picked throughout our stay. No doubt, I had to self serve but gosh, you just gotta hand some things down to the Japanese.
Respect . They really do think of everything and they really know how to make their customers feel darned good too.
We stepped off the plane and were picked up by THIS vehicle.
Holy...!!! Yeah, like hell, I was absolutely soooooo impressed. So much so , I half expected Jason Statham , aka The Transporter, to pick up my bags for me,this Mem Besar.
Nope, wasn't him behind the wheels but Fuh....shiny...what I way to enter Tokyo . Nice !

So now, you probably think the Japanese came up with this weird looking gold structure, but you're wrong.
The Flame of Liberty is a gift from France.
Meant to resemble an eternal flame of friendship between the 2 nations I only noticed it only when the sun was about to set. Strangely enough , the structure is hardly mentioned in Odaiba tourism brochures.
We visited Tokyo at a time when the heatwave struck. Nah , no bad weather ever gets in my way of enjoying whichever city I am at ,to the fullest.
So anyway, this Tanuki is a racoon dog which is said to be a shape shifter, revered for its big balls...I kid you not...which is turned into everything from a dish ( how radical ) to drum skins. See the thing between the legs and you get the hang of just how well endowed it is in that department.
