Shibuya crossing is the world's busiest pedestrian crossing and also a popular place that makes the most traveler's list of top recommendations.
Thousands of pedestrian all cross at same time from five directions ( Up to 3,000 people use the crossing per green cycle.)
Why is the crossing so busy?.......
Shibuya is one of the major shopping districts in Tokyo and so many people are walking between various stores near the crossing. Also, there are so many things to do such as restaurants, movie theaters, karaoke. If you're bored and getting nothing to do, it would be good idea for you to hang out in Shibuya to kill some time.
You can spend a lot of money to get great sushi but what is the satisfaction in that? This sushi was served at Kappa Sushi in Tokyo. The price 1,200 yen. ($11.00)
Last time I went there, the place was closed for good. Now I need to find other places.
Interns are meeting / having breakfast with Mayumi Nakamura, President of PSPinc in Tokyo. Hotel buffet breakfast is so good in Japan especially at Hotel New Otani, Tokyo. It cost 3,800 yen ($35) but with member's club, it has some discount.
It is good to see all of them.
Expect to sones $17 to $25.
I am writing this blog to the people who are planning to visit Japan. If you like Japanese style Pork Cutlet called "Tonkatsu とんかつ", you need to try Tonki in Meguro.
This is one of the best Tonkatsu in Tokyo. But Tonkatsu is such a popular item in Japan, you can find many Tonkatsu restaurants and most of they are very good. But Tonki will serve in the counter only environment. You need to try this.
DepaChika means "Departmentstore" + "Chika Underground". It is the basement floor of department stores. In japan, Depachika is dedicated to selling food items. If you get there after 6:00pm, many of the items are discounted 30 ~ 50%.
!,100 yen or US$10
This is one of the most popular donburi stores in all of Tokyo
Situated between JR Yamanote Line Okachimach and Ueno in Tokyo
One of the things you must try is donburi in Japan. There are many kinds of donburus, but if you like fresh sushi or sushi, you must try this one. This is one of my favorite donburi shop in Tokyo.

Like other countries, Japanese are more health cautious. I found this 400KCal Obento in Japan. This is very good meal for just 400KCal.
Health in Japanese is "Kenko" 健康（けんこう）
Healthy Obento is "Kenkou Na Obento"

Eki-Ben (Eki = Station Ben = Bento) is a type of Obento that is sold at train stations. Depending on where you are, there are special Obentos associated that area. It is fun to check out what kind of Eki-Ben there is in each area.
