My friends and I have just completed a culinary tour of Japan. We had Kaiseki dinners in Kyoto, Robata-yaki at the foot of Mount Fuji, and Soba noodles in Togakushi. Of course we also enjoyed Kobe Beef served Teppanyaki style, but for me, the one...More

This has to be the most unique meal I have ever had. Impressive innovativeness, assiduous attention to detail, and playful puns on food names – plus the conversations with Chef Kento – all made for an unforgettable experience. And the food is really good, too,...More

TMB wasn't just a great culinary journey, but also a fun and engaging experience. Ping, the esteemed chef, was funny, entertaining and fun. He made the experience truly unforgettable, and we certainly look forward to paying him a visit on our next trip to Tokyo.

It was interesting. I think that you may go, but do you get tired a little once? The cooking was common.

Had an awesome night at Tapas Molecular Bar. We were there for our honeymoon and they really took care of us. The restaurant only seats up to 8 people and is located on the 38th floor of the MO Hotel with amazing views over Tokyo....More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

I can't quite recall exactly, but in GBP, it's a few hundred (depending on what you choose to drink as well).
