In this volume we welcome Ms. Yoshimi Hayashi, who runs MUCCINI ITALIA, specializing in Italian truffles. After thirteen years of living in Europe, she opened her store six years ago in Ginza, a place where she feels at home and endeavors to communicate to the world what a fascinating town it is.
Our first stop was Latin Bar Ginza Las Risas, where you can dance the Salsa.
Located in Ginza 8-chome, the bar offers not only cocktails but also opportunities to enjoy the Salsa. Their popular dance lessons are very casual and welcome beginners and those who have never danced the Salsa before.
Participants can learn basic steps and easy pair work. Lessons are held every day from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm for 2,500 yen per lesson, including one drink. Each day of the week, Las Risas offers lessons on different styles of dancing as well as lessons given by professional dancers.
After joining the lesson, you can continue dancing to lively Latin music, or enjoy a Mojito and other Latin cocktails at the bar. Enjoy a Latin atmosphere different from your average day, in conversation over a glass of rum or dancing on the dancing floor. Las Risas offers a wide variety of rum, selected by the owner, who possesses a Rum Concierge license. A bunch of glass markers hung from the wall, with names written out so that no one would miss their glass.
Las Risas is the perfect place to casually stop by after work, alone or with a friend, to join a dance lesson and get some refreshing exercise dancing the Salsa. Furthermore, a Girls’ Night Out party plan offers female groups of four arriving at the same time a complimentary bottle of wine on weekdays and Saturdays.
Please refer to the website for details about the dance lesson schedule ad party plans.

Our last destination was PLUSTOKYO, which opened at the end of November 2018. PLUSTOKYO is located on the twelfth floor and rooftop of KIRARITO-GINZA, a commercial establishment in Ginza 1-chome. With an entrance decorated with many artwork and murals, the spacious lobby is indeed a “chic spot for social interaction.”

During the daytime, it can be used as a café or for lunch, and at nighttime it opens as a nightclub, as well as a bar and dining spot. Customers are also welcome to go out on the rooftop, which is open for barbeques or beer gardens, depending on the season.
