Late Night Meal

thread
Hakata Tenjin Shinjyuku Kabuki... Hakata Tenjin
Shinjyuku Kabukicho
I think ramen makes a very good late night meal. This plece "Hakata Tenjin" is my one of my favorite ramen chain. For 500 yen (about US$4.50), you can get hot bowl of Tonkotsu Ramen. You can ask the cook to cook noodle soft or hard. Any you also get second serving of noodle free, provided you left some soup in your bow.

Japanese Restaurant called Ryoutei 料亭

thread
Japanese Restau... Japanese Restau...
If you have a chance, try traditional Japanese restaurant called Ryotei.

料亭: A ryōtei (料亭) is a type of luxurious traditional Japanese restaurant. Traditionally they only accept new customers by referral and feature entertainment by geisha, but in modern times this is not always the case. Ryōtei are typically a place where high-level business or political meetings can take place discreetly.

Privately Owned Taxi Cabs in Japan

thread
Private Cabs have Better Cars. Private Cabs have Better Cars.
Some of you already know there is no UBER or Lyft in Japan. All taxi cabs are licsed and issued a green licenseplate. Any taxi operating without taxi cabs license are called Shiro-Taku (White Taxi). It does not mean the car are white, but the lucence plates have white backgroung.

I usually choose white clolored taxi cabs. Because they are operated by individiuals not taxi companies. The cars are newer, cleaner and better service. Next time when you look for taxi, try white cabs. The prices are the same, so why not ry the better cabs.
