    ... of wine and ate plenty in two hours. We were there at opening and not another person came. All that food wasted (or in tomorrow's soup?) we left when the two lads serving us had packed up and were desperate to leave. We were now on the hunt for a typical Japanese bar. This would be a very small venue. It was a pub that was centred around the bar - only chairs at the bar.

    ... saw us traipsing zombie-like from platform to subway to the Keihan line, another change then a 750 metre walk and we made it.
