  1. 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 :)

    1. This is awesome. I love Mikado and Wa is amazing as well. Hope to get out there and check it out.

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

            1. re: askdrtodd

              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.

          2. 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 :)
