Hi, Mefites! I'm visiting Tokyo soon and will be there Oct 29 to Nov 2. I'd love to meet up and grab some food basically anywhere in the city. My evenings are essentially free and apart from Wednesday when I've got the Ghibli museum I'm down to get lunch as well.

I'm terrible at suggesting food ideas so I'll defer to others, but I finish work at 6 on weekday nights and I'd definitely be up to going somewhere! I'm free evenings for that whole week, but Friday night (11/2) might be early for me since I have an early train the next morning.

I have a bunch of places I've been wanting to check out! Maybe Photo Book Dining Megutama in Ebisu? Apparently the rooftop food court at SOGO in Ikebukuro is supposed to be really pretty as well.

Weekdays definitely work for me. Wednesday night maybe?

Wednesday night is good for me personally, and at either of those places. I work on the Yamanote line so easy access.

Sogo on Wednesday at 7pm, then! (Oh wow I just noticed that Wednesday is literally Halloween. Ha!)

Have fun, all! Wish I could join in. Next time.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, but have a great time!

Excited for the Meetup tomorrow! I'll have light aqua pants on and a big teal and green backpack. There will probably be more than one Asian girl with a bob and round hipster glasses there, but that might help you find me too!

Also excited for tonight! I should get there right around 7 or a little after depending on trains and finding the place.

I will be there around 7pm. Maybe we should have a MeFi flag or something in the future when we're meeting in big spaces like this!

Anyway, I will be on the lookout for aqua, teal and green, or for me, green, green and green, since I am somewhat colorblind.

Ok I guess I don't know what SOGO is. We're meeting at Seibu, no?

Sorry! I got lost! I had no wifi! Yes it is Seibu and I am coming to the rooftop asap.

Thanks for coming! It was really cool meeting you all, and that fry-your-own restaurant is awesome.
