Saturday, I had some free time, so I went to check out Takeya.

After V showed me where it was, I wanted to go back to check it all out.

Well...Takeya has 8 buildings!

I went to the packaged food building and the ladies building...picking up some food items (coffee, chocolate almonds, arare, corned beef) and some nail polish remover.

I only went through 2 of the buildings and will definitely go back to check out the other buildings...

For lunch, I ate at Yushokuya Boo, which is located under the train tracks near Okachimachi station.

The roast beef in their donburi was super tender with no gristle...830 yen (tax included)...and topped with their housemade ponzu (citrus soy sauce), shiso (perilla), myoga (Japanese ginger) and green onions.

The rice was kind of on the hard side...I think it might have been reheated in the micro.

My meal came with some salad and some soup....I didn't care much for the soup though it was creamy but super tasteless.

I'm glad I tried this place though I don't know that I will be back (they allow smoking).

So much more to explore in this area...I'll be back.

I think the general food place will get tiring pretty fast with all the "you know who" tourist. But fun, yah

There's nothing like a little retail therapy to brighten the day. I received my Amazon order of ruby chocolate chips just quick!

Rowena, ooh...exciting!

Take care everyone.

Smoking and eating just do not get along Kat....too bad it's still allowed.

Kirk, they are trying to "clean up" for the Olympics but I don't think they'll ever be "smoke free".

Take care!

Made it to Takeya last week! Also we went to the Daiso Giga-Funabashi and the Daiso Arakit Kinshicho and the Arakit one is much nicer and I think they actually have more stuff.

Thanks for the timely post!
