Sony Building Ginza

From the Ginza station we went last time. We left the station at Sony Building exit to go to Sony Store Ginza.

We saw the Sony Street when exit the station. We turned right and see the gate to Sony Building.

Sony Building is 8 stories building opened in 1966. It features the flower petal structure that is very unique at its time.

First we walked to Sony Store Ginza Tax Free Floor on 4th floor to redeem the souvenir using web coupon we got from Tokyo tourist website. Then I went to buy the accessories which aren’t sold in my country.

While walked in the store. We saw the special edition Cyber-shot sold here with 50% discount. It’s cheaper than the one’s sold in my country. So my sister bought the pink one.

The Sony Showroom and Sony Store are on 1st – 4th floor only. Other floors are the place for other shops, restatuants and Sony Life consult center.

OPUS features SRX-T110 which is a high end 220″ 4K projector.

Today screening is 4K Kabuki. Sony used 4K CineAlta camera recording the Kabuki performance for showing the capabilities of 4K technology.  There are many Kabuki fan watching with us. Most of them is elder.

There is the internet service corner at OPUS. Although they use the old VAIO to service but it’s good.

Fujiya Ginza

We left Sony Building for finding the place to have lunch. We passed Fujiya that is the famous bakery shop on our way.

Rengatei

We had lunch at Rengatei that is the one of the oldest western restaurant in Japan since 1895.

Rengatei

The decoration inside is retro style. It’s very suitable place for girl meeting.

Rengatei

First dish is omelet rice or omu-rice. One of the restaurant famous dishes. It believes that this restaurant invent this dish.

Rengatei

The omelet wrap each grains of fried rice. The ketchup is made by the restaurant itself. It’s very fresh.

Next is the Hamburger in demi-glace sauce. It served with spaghetti fried egg and fried potatoes.

Rengatei

The beef is soft but not breaking easily.

Rengatei

Shrimp macaroni gratin is very delicious.

Rengatei

We asked them for more ketchup. They served it in the pot. That’s right it’s the same one use on omu-rice. The breads behind is OK. The french toast is quite hard but the bun is very soft.

Rengatei

They still use very old cash register. It can still print the receipt too,

After we finished our lunch. We went back to the Ginza station. Got the train to Shimbashi station for getting on the Yurikamome line.

Rainbow Bridge

Fuji TV

We got off the train at Daiba station where Fuji TV HQ is nearby. There is the observation deck in it too.

DiverCity Tokyo Plaza

We walked to DiverCity Tokyo Plaza where is our destination.

1:1 RX78-2 Gundam

Because this is the place of 1:1 RX-78-2 Gundam. I believed that the seagull that is in front of Gundam is the odaiba mascot.

1:1 RX78-2 Gundam

It has an insane of detail. Look like very realistic weapon.

1:1 RX78-2 Gundam

Some parts of it can be moved such as the thruster. RX-78-2 light and effect show is usually shown in the evening.

It’s the guard protecting DiverCity Tokyo Plaza in case of emergency. Just kidding.
