Aloha, I'm Kelly. I live in Japan and I'm on a quest for rum, tiki, and nautical/island-themed dining experiences in the greater Tokyo area and beyond. Prior to moving to Japan, I lived in San Francisco for twenty years and frequented many Bay Area tiki joints, mainly Tonga Room (it was three blocks from my house!) and Smuggler's Cove (Rumbustion Society for life!)I dearly miss the vibrant tiki community thriving there. If you're planning to visit the Tokyo/Kanto area and want to meet up, need a guide/fixer, or would like any assistance with Japanese-English tiki translations, please feel free to contact me.
