Rilasse in Tokyo Dome HotelRilassa

Usually when I go to Kourakuen or as its most commonly called Tokyo Dome, I eat in the city and as yet I have not had the pleasure of dining in the Tokyo Dome Hotel. I first read of this Buffet in Rilassa, in Tokyo Dome Hotel, in a popular Japanese magazine.  I have since seen it mentioned in many (Japanese) “guides” to Tokyo with children.  You can get full information in English on their website here.
