Fujisoba (名代 富士) At Akihabara, Tokyo

We had long day out for "Day 5" starting with Tsukiji Fish Market (築地市場), lunch at Tsukiji Sushi Kiyoshi (築地寿司清本店), more shopping trip at Ginza and sightseeing over at Kaminarimon (雷門) plus getting the famous Dorayaki (銅鑼焼き) from Kamejyu (亀十). In the evening, we took the train over to Akihabara (秋葉原) which is a district in central Tokyo, that is famous for its many electronics shops because cousin wanted to find some Anime figurines.

In addition to shops there are also various other cosplay restaurants in that area such as the well-known "maid cafes" where waitresses dress up and act like maids or anime characters, and manga kissaten (comics cafes) which is a type of internet cafe where customers can read comics and watch DVDs in addition to having access to the internet.

Before exploring more around Akihabara area, we decided to settle our dinner at Fujisoba (名代 富士) which was on the first floor building of Takarada central street that is near the Akihabara Station. This 24 hours eatery has two ordering vending machines outside the shop which enable customers to purchase "meal ticket(s)" base on what they want and later on collects the dish over at the serving counter after making the payment. (At that point of time, my kid was fascinated by this food ordering machine which we don't get to see in Singapore.)

Tempura Udon @ ¥360 (SG$4.50)

Curry Rice @ ¥420 (SG$5.20)

Katsudon @ ¥460 (SG$5.70)
Even though the capacity of the shop can only cater less than 20 diners but one thing we learn from their culture, they don't usually spend more than 15 minutes eating at the shop. So whenever they finished they would vacant the seat(s) for the next waiting customer which in a way you don't even need to wait long during lunch/dinner crowds.

Fujisoba (名代 富士) is also one of those food chain outlets in Japan serving economic and decent Japanese food which are less than ¥550 (SG$6.80). And we also feel at least the quality are still much better than those Japanese food that we have in Singapore foodcourt if comparing the price that we are paying. So perhaps if for a quick bite or budget food, you could give it a try if you happen to walk past the shop
