My plan of the 5th day is hunting AKB48’s Suzukake Nanchara singles that are sold one day earlier in Japan.
This is another day that I can wake up normally. Before hunting I planed to go to Asakusa first. However it’s rain on that day and I fell at the train platform. Not a good day for me.
Exit from Tokyo Metro station at Kannon Dori street.
Just turned right and found Kaminarimon.
There weren’t many people because of raining.
I saw more people while walking to the temple.
Finally I was in temple ground.
It wasn’t crowd so I could take my time here.
Then I walked back to the opposite side of Kaminarimon to Unagi Irokawa that is very famous for unaju. The grilled eel on the rice. Luckily I didn’t have to queue because there weren’t many people waiting on that day.
The English menu was given to me. I order the large size of Unaju. There is the Unaju restaurant called Obana near my hotel but the price is more expensive than this.
Irokawa opens for more than 100 years. This is the latest generation owner.
He grills eels by switching between pasting the sauce and controling the heat by fan until they are well done.
Here’s my Unaju with soup and pickles.
Although this is my first Unaju. It’s very delicious. The grilled eels are very soft. You can feel the sweet of the sauce from them.
If you can’t stand it’s fishy. There is the herb that can help reducing it but I prefer not to use it.
After finished my meal. I searched for CD store around this area and found Shinseido on ROX Asakusa.
When I visited the store, they hadn’t put the single on the shelf yet. So I asked for them at the counter and bought type A version.
With the help from information in ROX Asakusa. I could walk back to Shin Nakamise street to go to Tokyo Metro station here.
I use the same path as the last time and took the train to Ginza.
Next time I will write about the planetarium event at Sony Building, my quest of hunting AKB48 single in Shinjuku and having dinner at AKB48 Cafe. Please look forward to it.
