By lunchtime we’d met up with traveling partners Tanya, Dan and James.

Sanna and I visited this restaurant when we first came to Japan years ago.

I got very drunk with the owner and some guests and they took our photo and stuck it on the wall to this day.

The food was just as good this time as last.

We had a huge night out with Tokyo shots. Very late night and too much sake.
