Happy thanks to Yes in Japan: Japanese lunch and “Japanese paintings” shopping

A couple of French-speaking tourists in Tokyo e-mailed our Yes in Japan French manager (always glad to help people in trouble) to thank him for helping them order their lunch at a Japanese restaurant without English menu and without English-speaking staff then recommending Ebisudo Gallery near Jimbocho station (Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) to buy beautiful “Japanese paintings” (ukiyo-e woodblock prints in fact) at a reasonable price. They found the art shop with our Get Japan map of Jimbocho area, loved the gallery and its shopkeeper, and bought 2 ukiyo-e 🙂
