This is a place for cheap sushi, ranging from 100 yen to 600 yen per plate. I have tasted more premium sushi, where they are softer and melt in your mouth. Sushi here are good, probably better than the ones in Malaysia, quite a few fish options, so definitely value for money.
We ordered about 17 plates, ordered only plates which are less than 300 yen and we ended up with 2500 yen for 2 person.
A pretty good fruit pie French dessert restaurant for about 700 yen a piece. We went for pear and potato, each with different crust and taste delicious. Thought of getting another one, but having too much spoilt the appetite.
Sitting space is limited, but no much crowded at 7pm (dinner time, the shop closed at 8pm). Many came for takeaway until the last minute.
It is peak autumn at Mount Takao, just an hour out from Tokyo. This is a pretty touristy place, means good transport, plenty of food and restaurant.
There are some marvelous red leaves just in front of the station. We took the tram up, where the path are covered by red autumn trees. You could walk as well, but we are short on time.
It is another 30-60 minutes walk up the peak depending on which path you take. We took no 3.
The weather is perfect today, and we can see all the mountains. Fuji is slightly hidden with clouds at its top. Unpack our lunch from a bakery and enjoy the view. There is a restaurant up there as well.
We went back on route no 1 and pass by a temple. Just in time for the last chair lift decent at 4.30pm and the sky starts to get dark.
The museum is not a big place, mainly 3 floors and a rooftop. The ground floor is exhibition, which is pretty interesting. Second floor is exhibition of work area and how animation are made. Third floor is a Cat Bus play area for little children (why can't adult have fun too) and a small shop. Roof top is a garden with Giant Robot from Laputa. And there is an outdoor restaurant with quite a long queue.
We are lucky to booked an online ticket for 1000 yen per person, which is quite a challenge.
The is a dedicated yellow Ghibli bus at Mitika Station south exit, and get down from the left stairs.
