Our plan that day was to go to Asakusa, the place where you will see that big red lantern hanging. I remembered the weather was brutal that day; we were all wet after taking the subway. So before we continued our journey, we decided to find a place to restore our energy first. The one restaurant that we were facing was Marukan, an old-style soba restaurant.

My dad was already so full that he could not stuff anything more into his stomach. So the rest of us each ordered a dessert...
- Decorated with a cracker.
- I didn't try this though...
- It also came with some red bean paste with sesame seeds sprinkled on top.
- If you look clearly, there are also mochi and some fruits with the ice-cream.
- Again, I didn't try this but my sister did enjoy this a lot (She loves desserts anyway).
- The pudding was smooth and yummy. I enjoyed it a lot.
- It actually reminded me of their Soften Tofu I just had for dinner.

We went there on the first night we arrived. It was about 8:30pm and this restaurant was already full; we had to wait for 20-30mins at least. We went to somewhere else of course, but before we left, we made a reservation for next day's dinner. There we go: this fancy, busy restaurant.

Underground restaurants are very common in Japan, almost every department store has a basement where you can find small shops, restaurants, bakeries, etc.
Since we lived near Shinjuku, the basement of Odakyu (one of the big department stores in Tokyo Japan) was the most familier to us. Most restaurants there are cafes. So when we decided to have breakfast one morning, the first coffee shop that appeared to us immediately became our first choice.

The same case happened when we were in Shibuya (Omotesando to be precise) one day. A cafe caught out sight immediately when we looked up a random building :D
