My junior high, high-school, and university (freshman and sophomore years) were on Tokyu Toyoko Line and that made Yokohama an afterschool playground for me and my school buddies. Back then Minato Mirai area was not fully developed, so the places like Hotel New Grand (before the tower was added), China Town (before becoming too touristy), and this restaurant opened in 1963 were the icons of Yokohama for us. Restaurant Scandia located at the most Yokohama-esque street corner has a very Yokohama-esque setting with a bit over-the-top interior. And it offers my most favorite cuisines along with Chinese—Scandinavian. No place in Tokyo has this atmosphere.
