Fun Inside A Restaurant

I often find restaurants as places that are intriguing. The restaurant owners usually want their places to have personality and delightful. I guess this probably holds true for any restaurants – expensive or ordinary (for everyone) ones. It can make you feel excited as taking a trip to a different place when you first step into one.

This is a local Japanese restaurant. It is rather small but the place makes me feel as if I am in Japan, in a Japanese people house (this is just my imagination as I have not been into a Japanese people house in Japan). I could not help to sneak few pictures as I am a tourist. It was fun.

Β I think is for more private or for you to really feel more at home. I really like the shoe rack and the coat hanger at the front.

The paper lantern style is used for light figure. A nice touch for the ordinary table.

    I’m agree with you, the architecture more than private. I think may be more for business lunch or dinner. But I like Japanese style especially garden. Thanks for share.

      I think you are correct that is more than private. I also like the Japanese style garden. Thank you.

    Love the Japanese decor, and sign to take off your shoes. I went to a Japanese restaurant and we had to sit on cushions on the floor. Hope your food was delicious. πŸ™‚

      Thank you Cindy. I am all for eating too πŸ™‚

    You enjoy a Japanese restaurant, and I am very glad


    • YellowCable June 7, 2014 / 7:56 pm

      I certainly enjoy Japanese restaurant and Japanese food.

    Beautiful pics, YellowCable

    It looks a lovely place and very authentic. But I was hoping to see some of the delicious food. πŸ˜‰


    • YellowCable June 8, 2014 / 7:03 am

      LoL, I am sorry when food arrived it took priority over everything else. My mind shifted the focus automatically to eating. Camera was put away immediately πŸ™‚

    Usual Japanese house nowadays is generally quite westernized, I’m afraid. If you have a chance to come to Japan, why don’t you find a home-stay style place to stay. I heard there’re some in Tokyo. I guess you’ll be dissapointed somehow. (^^;;


    • YellowCable June 8, 2014 / 10:04 am

      I can completely understand how things are. That probably holds true every where. That is a good suggestion about the home-stay. Thank you πŸ™‚

    One must make their place special if they want returning customers πŸ™‚ Loved the visit with you but you forgot to SHARE your dish πŸ™‚

    Love the interior of this place… it’s so simple, yet elegant. basic yet so inviting! love it!


    • YellowCable June 10, 2014 / 7:00 am

      I do too. Sometimes simple means more. Thank you πŸ™‚

    Was the food good? I’ve only had YoSushi and I tend to choose safe chicken on skewers :). I’d love to experience a proper Japanese restaurant like this too.


    • YellowCable June 10, 2014 / 6:38 pm

      The food was good or I think I like the food. If you do not like raw fish sushi then there should be non raw fish option. I also like the Japanese hot noodle soup or cold noodle which do not have any raw fish in. Please try them some time πŸ™‚


  11. AmyRose June 12, 2014 / 7:25 pm

    You clearly got the “feel” of this restaurant across in every photo. I really enjoyed this article. Thank you! Love, Amy


    • YellowCable June 12, 2014 / 7:27 pm

      Thank you very much Amy, I am glad you like them πŸ™‚


      • AmyRose June 12, 2014 / 7:29 pm

        I thank YOU. I felt like I was right there. Love, Amy

    That was an interesting restaurant – certainly very different!! πŸ™‚ It’s making me smile that you posted this, because I asked my brother what he would like to do for his birthday, maybe a place to eat, and he said a Japanese restaurant would be nice! I agreed, but I said to him “but what am I going to eat?” I have a problem eating certain spices, I really like them, but they don’t seem to do me a lot of good. And I would imagine the food would be very exotic, and possibly quite spicy – a bit of a problem there for me! So what was the food like in that cosy restaurant, and did you have to kneel on the floor to eat your meal?


    • YellowCable June 16, 2014 / 7:00 am

      I think you do not have to concern about the food is spicy. I think Japanese foods are not generally spicy although there might be few spicy dishes. Even so, I think they are not considered strong at all and I think they are rather mild if anything.

      In term of exotic, I think they are exotic but I think that is just because they are from different culture. The base ingredients should be quite common – fish, chicken, pork, shrimp, vegetable, seaweed, noodle.. etc. The well known exotic should be raw fish which you can avoid or find alternative if you do not like them raw or raw taste.

      For this particular place, I did not have to kneel. I sat at a normal table. Looking closely at the picture, I think the table in side the room there does not require you to kneel. I saw that you can hang your feet under the table. However, to get in and out might need you to bend a bit.

      I hope you and your brother find a good restaurant (or try a Japanese one) for his birthday and have a good time πŸ™‚


      • SuzyHazelwood June 16, 2014 / 4:27 pm

        I did wonder if some of the food might milder compared to Chinese or Indian, so I shall look into it a bit more. I think there is only one Japanese restaurant in my city, popularity is not as high as Chinese yet, but that will probably change. Lots of people like the sushi these days, not sure if I’d like raw fish!! Thanks for the information, I shall look some more up about Japanese food! πŸ™‚


        • YellowCable June 16, 2014 / 7:22 pm

          I would say that the food is milder compared to Chinese and definitely compared to Indian. Perhaps, share your experience if you try out the place πŸ™‚

    You are right in your observations of restaurants, but I believe more so exactly for Japanese restaurants. They are always very stylish and with an aura of Japan. And then the food is equally great – in my opinion at least. You certainly captured this restaurant’s atmosphere in a very nice way.


  14. Dilip June 28, 2014 / 7:44 am

    These pictures show the inimitable Japanese culture. Beautiful and many thanks.


    • YellowCable June 28, 2014 / 1:02 pm

      Thank you Dilip. I think this restaurant did well with their setting.


  15. Miss Lou July 4, 2014 / 8:50 am

    I’ve never been to japan either, though this particular restaurant certainly captures a very tradition type feel.. doesn’t it?

    Well at least (and credit goes to you) the pictures surely portray that!




    • YellowCable July 4, 2014 / 9:03 am

      That place me feels like I am in the country too. Things can be different than in the home country, I assume.

      Thank you Miss Lou!


      • Miss Lou July 4, 2014 / 9:04 am

        Perhaps! I guess we just wont know until we make it there!!

    We used to have a local Japanese restaurant but now it is converted to Chinese. So sad:(

    Visited a Japanese restaurant last night and remembered your post πŸ™‚
