  • Condomania: Harajuku (Fun Shops / Harajuku)
  • 2009/09/04
  • Seeing the Sanrio Monkichi condoms gives this review an extra star. Hahaha major mood killer! Lol.

    However, a lot of condoms sold here looked like they might be painful or impractical to use. One had little shapes poking out from the tip.

    Better to have for a laughs than to actually use.
  • Don Quijote (Consumer Electronics / Akihabara)
  • 2009/09/04
  • This is like Walmart (complete with toys, shampoo, electronics, and liquor, although I didn't see any guns) plus a sex shop... with a maid cafe thrown in for fun. We came here looking for tiny screwdrivers for my friend's camera, but only one or two sets would fit a screw that tiny. We also had fun looking at all the well-made costumes (most are maid costumes that cost around 7000 yen).

    Unfortunately, even with all the stuff they sell here, I couldn't find the particular face lotion I needed. Oh well.

    The famous At Home Maid Cafe is located in the Akihabara branch, but we missed last order by a few minutes.

    There is a duty free area for tourists, as well.
  • Sengoku Ramen: Asakusa (Ramen / Asakusa)
  • 2009/08/30
  • I came here with a friend. They have great prices for the very hungry. 800 yen gets you a huge bowl of ramen, so make sure you have a big appetite. My friend and I could only finish half of each of our own bowls, so it was a bit embarassing to leave without finishing our food.

    She got chashumen, but the meat was not of best quality. However, the yakiniku ramen I ordered was delicious. The meat was tender inside and bursting with marinated flavor on the outside. And the veggies in the soup complemented it well.

    If the chashumen was as good as the yakiniku, then Sengoku Ramen would have a rating of 5 stars, no doubt.

    For those of you who have limited Japanese, they do have a picture menu, but only a few items are displayed. And nobody spoke English when my friend and I went there, so make sure you have some knowledge of spoken Japanese.

    The waiter we had was extra friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we got what we wanted. My friend has an allergy to tree nuts, and the waiter definitely put us at ease.
  • Mawaru Ganso Sushi: Akihabara (Conveyor Belt Sushi / Akihabara)
  • 2009/08/25
  • Great prices and nice combinations of sushi. I had one which included okra, and another with natto on the top. The natto added a nice nutty flavor to the fish. A third piece, was the traditional slice of salmon on top of slightly sweet rice.

    The sushi was pretty fresh, with the sushi maker getting rid of the older ones.

    For a drink, you can fix yourself a mug of hot green tea.
