They came to our hotel lobby. Since we were staying at Shinjuku, we were having a lot of choices of restaurants. Depsite the fact, we should have made a better choice. The restaurant we chose (later I gathered) was a 居酒屋. So, customers were in pretty high spirits, talking loudly. Food served was mostly light food. But it is always good to meet friends. They gave us some tips on touring in Tokyo since it was their 4th day there.
