If you are passing by you w may want to try one of the restaurants located on the ground floors, in particular a Okonomiyaki-ya (restaurant) with a "charismatically rude" owner that makes a very good one. My J-wife suggested it at the time, it's was good and fun. Itadakimasu :-)

On the roof it's quiet, warm and you feel like there are no limits (still it's one of the safest place with open roof I've ever been to). Romantic... More
