I know it’s not tasteful to post about going out right now but sorry I’m gonna do it 😋.

Today I went to Jojoen for 焼肉 (Yakiniku) lunch. It’s a fancy lunch for sure but it’s such a good lunch deal. Dinner here is ¥20,000+ but lunch is only about ¥4,000. The quality of the food is the same and it’s so delicious. This is generally a good tip for traveling in Japan. Look up the pricy famous restaurants and then go there for lunch instead of dinner; Usually a super good deal.

Also during the コロナ (Corona) situation, they’re taking super care. They fill the private rooms first, before the regular seats. I was going to say everything is spotless, but I’m sure that’s the same all the time, it’s Japan 😂. But yeah. It was as safe as could be. An almost empty, super clean, high end restaurant for lunch.

Slightly related, Shinjuku was a ghost town (photo below). I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s the busiest train station in the world. It’s always packed.
