The other day, Satoshi and I tried Gyosai for lunch.

During lunchtime, they were offering a glass of beer for free...whoo!

Satoshi ordered their kaisen-don (assorted seafood bowl)...1000 yen.

This came with a couple of pieces of tai (snapper) and some sesame dressing. After eating your donburi, fill it up with some rice, and some fish stock, then top it with the snapper and have a chazuke (rice with tea) of sorts.

I went with their 7 pieces of sushi...1000 yen.

This actually came with 2 handrolls and some soup too.

One thing about shopping in Japan is that most places have point cards. The point card at Breeze Breeze lets you accumulate points then when you get 1000 points, you can print out a shopping coupon worth 1000 yen. The coupon can be used at any store or restaurant in the Breeze Breeze complex.

Since we had a 1000 yen coupon, we used it for our lunch. So our bill only came out to 1000 yen! (Deal!)

The food was good, so we'll be back.

Nice score with the free beer, and I do love places with point cards or loyalty cards where you get points for every euro spent. Our fave supermarket puts out a new catalog each year and we've traded in points for everything from jugs of olive oil to a small wine cabinet.

ooh that sounds like fun, Rowena!

Take care.

Looks delicious, and what a great deal! My grandmother in Japan is obsessed with point cards, haha. I love them too!

I think I have more point cards than anything in my wallet, K :)

Take care.
