    Thanks for posting about this. I have been living in Japan for the past few years but I'm here in Tampa for the time being and dearly miss Tokyo. I think I will head out tomorrow to check this out :)

        This is so freaking awesome. I'm packing up to head out to orlando for the next couple days, pop on CH to see whats up real quick, and I see this. You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.

          Ran-Getsu will be missed this year as they had some great octopus tako yaki balls :( and some other stuff , i hope the other restaurants pick it up and do some nice street food rather than just sushi lol

            Hey I can only go for like an hour or so, would it be better to go in the beginning or at the end? we have a thing at around 1pm, so we can go maybe from 11:45 to 12:45 or 4-5.

              I was thinking the same thing, that we probably won't stay the entire duation. I think we were just going to wing it. but on their website their is a schedule. That may help you in deciding.

            going around the beginning is better cause later in the day they start to run out of food

              This is true. I showed up at 4:50 (didn't have a choice) and was pretty pissed I missed all the awesome grub. I consoled my sorrows with a tasty craft beer at the House-Of-Beer in the complex though, really dulled the pain :)
