Our Anniversary!

We had our tenth anniversary (over a month ago *cough*) and decided to do some super fun stuff. We accomplished that goal!

For lunch we went to a nearby standing udon place which we recently saw was ranked as one of the top 100 restaurants on Timeout Tokyo.

Here are my cold noodles with some shaved daikon, negi (green onion), some citrus, a tempura’d fish cake stick, and two tempura’d chicken thighs. I would recommend that, unless you’re really craving tempura, just get a larger size bowl of noodles. Also, add the fresh ginger they offer at the bar as well as some sauce. Fantastic.

This udon was eaten by Sam. While we were there, we talked about how we were worried we wouldn’t be able to taste the difference between these supposedly amazing noodles and everything else. In the end, the difference was stunningly clear. It’s worth the no question, it’s worth the 300¥.

Next we went to the Round 1 in Odaiba, which has a free play area if you purchase a special bracelet; we’ve only been to the one in Odaiba and Ikebukuro, but Ikebukuro didn’t have this section so it might be special to Odaiba. I have no idea! That being said, I love it.

This is a game we played through called, Buraku Kingu ("Block King"). In this game you through those balls at ascreen to take out little lego guys, walls, treasures, or giant robots. Everything in the game is made of legos. It was fantastic and I loved it.

After played at Round 1 for three hours, we headed back to Oimachi (on the way to our apartment from Odaiba), where we went out for dinner at a nice yakiniku (grilled meat) restaurant. We were there pretty late (we left at 22:00/23:00) so much of the menu was sold out, but they did have the Kobe Beef Calbi, which we made sure to order repeatedly. We also ordered some other tasty stuff:

Some mountain yams with chopped karikari ume, moyashi, and some sort of cooked greens.

It was a fantastic day and the best way to celebrate ten amazing years together! I’m not exactly sure what the next ten years will bring, but I’m pretty sure we’ll celebrate our twentieth in a similar fashion.
