Halloween and awesome Sushi (Tokyo 2014, #7)

 Because of the party at Womb last night, we woke up late.

Sushi restaurant Midori Sohonten Umegaoka Honkan

For brunch we went to a brilliant sushi restaurant: Midori Sohonten Umegaoka Honkan. We had two sushi set menus, one sashimi salad and a few sushi rolls. The dishes were prepared in front of our noses at the bar (we had bar seats). This was the first time we had to queue for a restaurant (30 min.). It’s not a touristic area, so we were the only non-locals. It all tasted great! We think this is a special place and we rate it with a 9 out of 10. And the place is not expensive at all!

Coffee bar Caraway

That afternoon, we searched for coffee bar: Tocoro. Even after some locals helped us, we couldn’t find it, or perhaps it was closed. We walked a bit further and then we found a small coffee place called: Caraway. We could choose from different single origin beans. I am not a fan of dark roasted coffee, but I wanted to try it again. It was not bad, but still it’s not my favourite. I rate Caraway with an 8 out of 10.

Halloween costume competition

Later that evening, we met with Saki, a friend of our Japanese friends in the Netherlands. We went to a Halloween competition party in the Shinjuku area. This neighbourhood is insanely busy with party people and so-called ‘salary men’. It’s also known as the red light district of Tokyo. We met some great people and had fun. At 23:30, the party was over and we went back to our apartment for a good night sleep, before we would go to Hakuba on the next day.
