If you would like to be transported back to ancient Japanese Times then this is the place to go. With beauty, elegance and mystique, you will be taken to a private room and served traditional Japanese cuisine presented with precision and most importantly, impeccable taste.
I was approached by a hair stylist on the street so I decided to give them a shot. When I had my hair extensions removed (put in by another salon), it was a very painful experience. The Japanese male stylist wasn't compassionate at all and frequently rolled his eyes. It was very unprofessional on his part.
I returned on a different date to get my hair highlighted. The same hair stylist (who is very confident in his training from London), completely missed a chunk of hair on the fringe. I will not be returning.
The owner of the salon has gone back to Australia (I was told) after the earthquake. Only Japanese stylists remain (at least on the two occasions I went there).
Unfortunately, I have had to downgrade my review. The owner of this salon is not professional. She made a comment about the other Australian run salon's owner and called her previous past profession into question which I don't care about. What I do care about is work ethics and professionalism and it isn't found here.
That and it is VERY dirty. The mirrors need a cleaning and the bathrooms are filthy. Do not use the hand towels, they are not being washed.
The dentist has been trained overseas and he is familiar with the latest techniques. His office is clean and he has the latest equipment. However, he will try to sell you things such as whitening products. Also, his original secretary just retired and the new one cannot speak English well. She has a tendency to mix up appointments so beware
I really don't have anything positive to say about most towers: Seattle, Auckland, Vancouver and the Tokyo Tower is no exception. Even worse, they don't even have a proper restaurant on the top floor. Perhaps this is a good thing, however, since most tower restaurants have mediocre food b/c you are paying for the view. The restaurants at the Tokyo Tower are fast food only such as Baskin Robbins and burger chains. The majority of tourists are high school kids on an outing. But see for yourself, you should experience it at least once, for the view.
Overpriced for what is on offer. A $25.00 hamburger that is mediocre in not my idea of a good place to eat. Especially when I can cook much better tasting food at home. Perhaps it is surviving because it is frequented by non-Japanese who do not cook and crave some home-style meals? Whatever the case, it is a crime what they charge here.
Having lived in Tokyo for 11 years, I am familiar with authentic sushi. This place isn't about authentic sushi, it is about Californian sushi. It is a trendy place and as a Dominic mentioned, a great place to take a nervous eater.
Good food, satisfactory service, and a comfortable atmosphere. They have a huge TV screen behind the bar as well which was playing a movie when we visited. Not a bad place to visit for lunch or a casual dinner.
I have been going to this supermarket for over 8 years. It has the largest selection of import food and liquor in Tokyo. Overall, the staff are friendly as well. Unlike National Azabu in Hiro-o, you don't have to fight crowds in a small space to do your weekly 'big shop' because the place is huge.
The majority of doctors are congenial and efficient with some exceptions. My husband and I visited a female eye doctor(I won't use names)and she was EXTREMELY RUDE. I was also put on some medication by a gynecologist who neglected to tell me what ALL of the side effects were.
The front desk staff? Terrible. Yes, they are efficient but they are extremely surly.
