Tokyo Big Sight is one of the largest convention center in Japan.
The most poplar event, or should I say notorious?, is Comic Market.
The second biggest event may be Tokyo Motor Show.
Food, Furniture, Book, Information Technology, Environment, Robot, Travel, Design, Welfare, Career Fair….listing events is endless.
Plus, today, the 23rd of February in 2014, Tokyo Big Sight is a goal of Tokyo Marathon.
Do you know the most annoying thing around there? The number of restaurants is quite a few for people. People make a long line at every restaurant. My office is close to Tokyo Big Sight. Probably, there is no restaurant where I’ve never been to. I’d like to introduce one of them.
I found a newly-opened restaurant, Takechiyo(竹千代) in Autumn 2013. Its specialty is a fish, especially dried-fish. Plus, a tea cup allures me. Somehow, proverbs are on it. I forgot to take a closeup picture. I’d like to show what it says next time. All staffs doesn’t get used to doing their job yet. Plus, they start to cook after order. It takes time before you can eat, nonetheless at lunch time.
Payment is first, then a staff hand you a piece of Shogi.A number is written on the back of it. When a staff bring your food, she call you the number. As you hear your number, you just swing your hand. Unfortunately, the number is spoken in Japanese. But, maybe Japanese staffs will serve you well.
You can eat rice and miso soup as much as you can.
I strongly recommend. I can easily crunch bones of fish which makes me blissful. Grilled way is ideal and perfect. I’d like to conquer all the menu.
