[delayed] Keikarou (Aiba restaurant) report. 
15th-Jan-2010 09:26 am
cute
About a month ago, I got a request to post a guide/pictures of Aiba's restaurant Keikarou. And I could finally post it!X'D Since we (me and yama_shin) were the last customers, we got the whole restaurant for us (and more than that *harhar*)




Keikarou




We went there on December 23th, yes, one day before Aiba's birthday!
That may have been the reason for him to come back haha

How to get there

First you need to arrive in Chiba.


The restaurant is located about a 5min. walk from Makuharihongo station!

If you want to know how to get there by train, I recommend this site:
http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/

Here is the restaurant's website:
http://www.keikarou.com/

So if you're going from Shinjuku:

Take the Chuo Line to Ochanomizu and change there to the Sobu Line(Local)! Make sure that the train really stops at Makuharihongo, because there's a train which stops right the station before Makuharihongo! We nearly took that train- so better ask the friendly Japanese!<3

Just a recommendation in passing:
You can spent the whole day in Disney Sea and then eat dinner at Keikarou, it's nearer from there haha!♥


Once you get there, go straight out of the station (as far as I remember, there was a diversion and you have to go left! When you get out, you should be on a bridge. Then you go LEFT and have this view:



As you can see (red arrow), you have to turn right at the crossing! Just walk along the narrow road and after 2min. you'll see this:


You can't miss it, don't worry!X'D

We arrived there around 8.30pm, which is pretty late actually! And the restaurant was FULL HOUSE!


See? We thought we wouldn't be able to make it into the restaurant anymore, but a very friendly waitress came out and took the last orders [They take orders until 9pm, but the restaurant is open until the last customers leave, I think]. She said that the 'main room' is occupied and if we're okay with the 'Japanese side room' (-->sitting on the floor). Of course we agreed, since the main point is to get in and eat something. But this turned out to be a very wise idea later on....♥

At the restaurant

This is the group of the last customers:


That's what I ordered:


IT WAS SUPER DELICIOUS. REALLY YUMMY!♥ And it costed 1600Yen, which is very cheap for what I got!o.O" Definitely want to go there again!

When we finished eating, it was around 22pm! There were two obasans sitting on the same table and we started to talk as we both got ready to leave. They were so surprised to hear that there are fans in Switzerland and Australia!X'D But they were both hilarious, really! When I said that my ichiban is Aiba, one of them kept on saying 'Yappari Aiba-chan deshouuu, kawaiindamon!'!<3 And they wondered how I got my ticket for Tokyo Dome, but I had to lie and said I got it from my Japanese friend [Actually I got it @ the Shibuya ticket store haha]. Anyway, it was a very nice atmosphere in there, and actually I was glad we got into the 'Japanese' room...I felt more special that way!X'D

Oh ya, before we left I went to the toilet and since my camera is alway in my jacket's pocket, I just took a picture of it because it was SO clean!LOOL


Ya...I'm weird I know.XD

So we got out of the Japanese room and surprise surprise, NOT a single customer in the main restaurant. We asked if we can look around and if it's allowed to take pictures. They said it's okay and here are a few pictures:


Empty restaurant!XD


Cashier and the stairs up to Aiba's room muahaha!XDD





Japanese fans are so awesome!*_*




This was simply AMAZING!! This must have been a lot of work!o.O


And because this was so pretty:

:D

Well known picture, but oh ye::


I'm not sure when the restaurant closes. But I think they close after the last customers left! Because the two of us wrote something in the message-book for Aiba and in the one for Arashi (yes, there are 2 different notebooks) and it took quite a while, so we were the last customers!^^" But Shin, I still think this was destiny!X'D

♥-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------♥

'Useful?' Tip: Maybe you should try to get there barely before they close and stay as long as possible and be the last customers to leave. This way you may be able to bump into a certain person on (his) way home like it happened to us, ne yama_shin?!;D

15th-Jan-2010 02:40 pm (UTC)
LOL, you really felt it?
Then you have to read my post I wrote a few hours after I saw him...I couldn't think clearly!XDDDD
15th-Jan-2010 01:52 pm (UTC)

15th-Jan-2010 02:41 pm (UTC)
Really? I thought there would have been a couple of posts already...o.O

But Koyama restaurant is also very nice ♥ and it was emty as well LOL.

I have no idea about the signatures actually; but I guess it from every member?:D

15th-Jan-2010 02:21 pm (UTC)

15th-Jan-2010 02:42 pm (UTC)
Hehe, yeeees you should really go! Not only because of Aiba, the food is REALLY delicious! And I'm not being baised at all!♥
15th-Jan-2010 02:23 pm (UTC)
I want to go! It's closer than I thought.

But I don't like Chinese and I strictly boycott any restaurant selling shark fin. >.> (Poor sharkies.)

Thanks for the lovely pics though!

PSSST Aiba lives in his own apartment in Tokyo I believe. ^^;;; Oh well...can't hurt to hope.
15th-Jan-2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
Yes, it's really not that far away from Tokyo!^^V

Ohh I see...But I don't think Keikarou was selling any shark fin! I wouldn't want to eat that either - _ - °

...Hehe, yes I know! But he still got his own room I think- otherwise I don't think we would've bumped into him at such an hour!;))
15th-Jan-2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
You don't know how happy I am to see this.
(And also staring at the picture with the stairs that leads to someone's room~~ )
15th-Jan-2010 02:28 pm (UTC)
