Tsunahachi Souhonten, Shinjuku, Tokyo

A trip to Japan end of Feb with one my best mates. Snowboarding for him, restaurants for me, drinking & arcades for both.

I love this country – beautiful, hospitable, the fact it’s impenetrable to foreigners. It’s ok to look perfectly clueless. Liberating.

Off the plane. Hotel check-in. Lunch. Round the corner and a recommended Tempura bar. Like many places in Japan, a restaurant that sticks to doing one thing perfectly.

Buzzing at lunchtime, round the kitchen seating, cold beer. Good selection of vegetables & seafood (shrimp, white fish, clam etc). Batter light & crunchy. I couldn’t really ask for more except what was in the shot glass….little fishes I hope…
