June Ambrose Says

Takashimaya is my ultimate favorite. If you want to go for lunch and just have some tea, no one can reach you because it's underneath the ground—no phone service, no blackberry—you can kind of hide out there. You could even have an affair, though you didn't hear that from me. And just experience great teas, freshly brewed teas and great Japanese bento boxes, so it's awesome. I also get my flowers for my home there as well, they do amazing arrangements. Great place for gifts—if you want to find a gift for under $100, they are great little thank you gifts and appreciation things. Great place to go.
