Ginza, Tsukiji, YurakuchoPage: 1/7
Pierre Marcolini is a luxury chocolatier from Belgium.
They have now opened 7 shops in Japan, with locations ranging from Ginza to Haneda Airport and Tokyo Station.
“Tokyo Midtown Hibiya” is a storefront complex that opened in March of 2018.
“LEXUS MEETS…” is a brand-experience facility on the 1st floor of that very building which features boutiques, cafés, vehicle exhibitions, and test drives.
This time, I stopped by that facility’s café, THE SPINDLE, for lunch.
“Ginza Uchiyama” is a famous Japanese restaurant in east Ginza.
As Uchiyama is a hugely popular restaurant that has held one Michelin star for multiple years, you absolutely need a reservation. This time, I visited for lunch.
Hibiya is a neighborhood in Tokyo known for its cinemas and theaters. In March of 2018, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya opened and I visited a Shanghaiese restaurant called Raika in this building. There are also Raika branches in Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen and Aoyama. All three locations are so popular that it's hard to get in without a reservation.
