Well, I am not really into molecular cuisine, that this was really fun! An experience full of surprises, starting from the tool box instead of silverware. Everything will be explained, including the measuring tape that contains the menu. Super entertaining. Food was very good, but...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

I can't quite recall exactly, but in GBP, it's a few hundred (depending on what you choose to drink as well).
