Dole Vending Machine

You don't come across these very often, but in the underground passage between Hibiya and Yūrakuchō Station there's a Dole branded fruit vending machine. One can purchase a small bunch of bananas, a single banana, banana chips or dried mangoes. Nice healthy snacks for the Tokyo commuter!

Delicious Udon at Tsurotantan (つるとんたん)BIS TOKYO

I don't usually do reviews, but this is my third or perhaps fourth visit to Tsurotantan in the Bis Tokyo building in the Marunochi just west of Tokyo Station and north of Ginza, and I have enjoyed the food and atmosphere each time. For this visit I started with the vinegarated eggplant and followed with a large bowl of the seafood and vegetable white curry udon.

Godzilla looks scary in the daylight, too!

Not completely sure, but without the darkness and colored lights Godzilla is still quite impressive! Anyway, now that September is here, I am sure that he is being dismantled this morning. I wonder what I will find when I return?
