There is nothing worse than an instructor barking out directions in an aggressive manner. At Basi Pilates in Roppongi, you will be gently directed and encouraged in a positive and comfortable environment by english speaking staff.
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 find the food here to be average. The service is satisfactory and the atmosphere is cozy and casual. It is located on the 2nd floor, not far from the Hiro-o station. I wouldn't frequent this place often, only if I am really craving Mexican food and I don't want to cook it at home myself.
I am not overly impressed by the quality of the food at this location or at the one in Azabu Juban. As mentioned by another poster, the burgers lack seasoning. The portions are decent and it is nice to be able to get a beer but other than that, it is really no different than a fast food joint.
The Japanese version of Walmart with the exception of a floor selling luxury goods under lock and key...even then, I wouldn't purchase anything designer here because I have heard that they are sometimes fake. It is a loud place, very busy, and dirty. If you don't want to make the trek to Tokyu Hands, then you may chose to settle for D.Q.
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.
A good place to go with the girls or as Dominic mentioned, the Desperate-housewive-types LOL...you will however see other demographics. It is a stylish place that offers delicious tapas. I wouldn't go here for a special occasion but it is suitable for upscale, casual dining.
This is the type of place that you visit once because of the atrocious entry fee. It is fun to do just to experience it or if you are entertaining out-of-town visitors.
I especially enjoyed the fruity flavored vodka. Who knew absolute came in so many flavors?
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.
I do all my shopping at Nissen with one exception: the 2nd floor at National Azabu. This floor offers the best selection of new(not used), English literature anywhere in Tokyo. It also offers an array of greeting cards, cooking books, and kitchenware. The first floor not only offers processed goods: they have a fresh fish deli, a meat deli, and wonderful, French gourmet cheeses. However, it is just too small to shop comfortably not to mention the tourists who frequent this store to window shop (Japanese people from the surrounding Tokyo areas).
Quaint and well-appointed, this museum offers many different exhibits . When I visited, there was a glass exhibit being displayed.
It is smaller than the Mori Art museum and doesn't offer the Panoramic view but it makes a nice diversion if you are shopping at Midtown.
It has a comfy setting with dim lighting and warm decor. Many people come here to unwind with colleagues. The restaurant part offers good eats, nice char-broiled steaks and the like. The bar is encircled by stools and it will get very crowded on Friday nights so get there early if you want a place to sit down.
