anything worthwhile in kobe? i plan on going to kyoto, osaka and hiroshima
Honestly I'm not sure. There's a shul and mikvah there, but I don't recall anything amazing there. Kyoto is amazing as is Tokyo.

Worth noting that Costco has kosher products from the US. And it's pronounced Cost-O-Co, ask for Costco and nobody will know what you're talking about.

Going to Japan next week- will post a TR during and after my stay.

Flying on JL, JFK-NRT route with the new JAL sky suites.
SO EXCITED- 50k AA for business is a fantastic value.
How long is your stay? I am taking JAL the "other way" around. JFK-LAX-SFO (AA F) and SFO-HND in F for 62.5k. I'll be landing the 8th.

That's a ton of stops. I'm going nonstop JFK-NRT
I'm leaving the 4th and Returning the 13th.
pretty sure there is no "F" class on my flight since it's a a dreamliner

Akihabara, Shibuya, Tokyo Tower, just wandering around and getting loss in the sheer madness of the massive city...

Lol, I get your email.
Good thing about your email is that it's not dead by the time it arrives ;)

So there's the first kosher restaurant opening up in Tokyo. Chana's place in the chabad house.

Are you saying Chana's Place is being opened by the "other" chabad?

As far as I can tell, Chana's Place is being run by R' Mendy Sudakevich (Who I consider a friend and happens to be a great guy) the official chabad shliach in Japan.

IIRC, Chana is Mendi's wifes name.

P.S. King Falafel was closed every time I visited.
