Senpai Zenkai: Doing the Ginza Aster! Over twenty-five Deep Japan senpai gathered at Tokyo's Ginza Aster
last Monday to enjoy an evening of sampling several amazing Chinese
dishes while learning about the history of not only the
restaurant but also Ginza (did you know there was once also a "Kinza"?).
In addition to the handful of regular participants, we also welcomed a
record number of first timers. Thanks to everyone who showed up and made
the night special - and our best Senpai Zenkai to date. You can read Ruth's post and senpai comments here.
A special thanks to Ginza Aster for making the night possible. All of us appreciate your exquisite food and warm hospitality!
