After visiting an exhibit at Roppongi Hills in the morning, we met up with Hubby’s cousins for lunch. We had a chance to stroll the Mohri Japanese garden, a beautiful oasis in the middle of the urban architecture. Lucky for us, the cherry blossoms were in full bloom!
Then they took us to a popular Italian restaurant at Roppongi Hills called Mohri Salvatore Cuomo. Delicious salads, pasta, pizza buffet with a drink for only ¥1380 on weekdays! It used to be that everything was more expensive in Japan, but with the high cost of living in Hawaii these days, I think many things are actually a better value in Japan. Tokyo’s dining out scene is so great – reasonably priced, high quality, and with an endless number of options.
Spaghetti with bacon and vegetables, penne with tomato sauce, pizza margherita, potato wedges.
Chocolate cake and cassis blueberry jello for dessert.
It was such a lovely day, reconnecting with faraway family. Next month we’ll get to see them in Hawaii again.
