Day 9 - Part II - Don’t go out to dinner on a Friday on the Ginza...

Without a reservation –

Especially if all you speak is polite greetings, counting & Japanglish food.

Luckily, there are ways around this dilemma.
We fell back on eating at the hotel restaurant, which was quite fancy.  So we didn’t get the whole Ginza experience, but we did get our first shabu-shabu meal with wafer-thin slices of marbled beef, tiny, exquisite rolled appetizers, and the delicious broth to go with the noodles. 

And after our palatial Chinese room, our perfectly adequate room with clever lighting seemed almost cramped. 
Fortunately we had a heated toilet seat with a full suite of button-operated options.  Sadly no lights or music – that must have been extra.

(I didn’t get a picture, but was amazed to see this show up at our local Costco this summer).
