If it's those small ramen joints (say, only 10 seats and pple are queueing right behind you while you eat), if I'm with a companion and he finishes faster than me, how ah? Can he sit there wait for me or its better for him to vacate his seat and wait for me outside the shop so that the next customer can be seated?
Ask ur companion eat slower to match ur pace

Hi guys,
Need recomendation, which has the best overall Foliage viewing experience:
Okutama or Lake Kawaguchi or Oshino Hakkai ? Or any other place? I intend to join a day tour

Thank you!
If it's just foliage viewing, Okutama will look very nice but Kawaguchiko and its surrounding areas with Fuji in the background is hard to beat.

Some very popular ramen shops like Fuunji and the one in Ikebukuro (cant remember the name) have people queuing behind you. To avoid stares, best is to wait outside or ask your friend to match your speed lah.

Jingisukan places like Daruma in Sapporo are like this too. Aji no Sanpei for miso ramen in Sapporo likewise. But thankful that they let the customers sit down and wait, because waiting time is at least one hour.

Ya ya, I'm going Fuunji lor, that's why asked here first. I also think it's not very nice if he is to sit there to wait for me. As what AHSS and evilerniex had advised, I've told my friend either his eating pace matches mine or if he finishes earlier he should go out wait. He's ok with waiting for me outside la, so it's settled.

I’ve been to Fuunji, as long as your pacing is not so far apart it’s ok to sit there for a little bit. They generally like to seat customers in orde anyway so if the next customers are in pairs they’ll still wait for you to finish then seat the pairs anyway. Just pay attention around you and observe others — should be fine.

Keio Plaza Tokyo? Or you can take a look at Google Maps for smaller business hotels around there.

From Shinjuku Busta. Buses are not covered by JR Pass. If you are holding JR Pass (nationwide), take the train to Gotemba. Thereís free shuttle buses to the premium outlets. Itís going to be a long ride, close to 2.5hrs one way.
