Dinner at Ginza Six

Darumakiwami

The restaurant is elegantly decorated in a distinctly Japanese way, with pictures of cranes and daruma good luck dolls. Just looking at the perfectly crafted skewers will start your mouth watering—these culinary works of art are perfect for an Instagram post. The ginkgo nut and mushroom skewers are a really original flavor combination.

VR Park Shibuya

I had a great time at VR Park Shibuya. There are ten different experiences including the single-player Jungle Bungee and two-player T4R Simulator. I was too scared to try the ultra scary Dead Prison. If you have been wandering the streets of Shibuya and need a rest, I really recommend this place. I had such a great time, even though I'd felt like I had run a marathon by the time I left the building. I probably lost weight by going there—ha ha ha.
