Japan, Day Three, Roppongi to Sapporo

After a morning in Ginza picking up business cards and being impossibly late to a meeting due to getting rather lost, a mishap that causes me still feelings of shame, no joke, I met up with Y for Nagoya style unagi at Bincho.  It was my third visit, and Y said it was the best Nagoya style unagi she had ever had.  Crispy skin, well sauced, moist interior, accompanied by perfect steamed rice and pickles and soup.

Later a superb interview with Sato-san, manager at Maduro.  I learned a great deal more about Japanese whiskies and later returned to hear live jazz at this first rate whisky bar in Roppongi Hills.

But first it was a terrific dinner of small plates of vegetables, egg, tempura, duck, and fish followed by delicious cold soba in a remote and extremely inviting place away from the hubbub of downtown.  Friends T, K, and R all were lively as we ate and drank warm and ten hot sake with the tasty food.

And today it’s Sapporo for dinner.
