This adorable place is tucked behind a temple in a residential area far far away from the tourist belt but well worth searching for as the total experience was awesome! The Chef and his staff were outstanding in their service and attention to details. The...More

I visited my daughter who lives in Tokyo. I wanted an exceptional dinner to celebrate, and this was it. This subtle, quiet, but magnificent restaurant made this very anticipated experience the cornerstone of my trip. No need to say more.

Had the best rice dish - so simple, clean but cooked to perfection. I grew up eating rice but didn't realize a vegetarian rice dish could be so sublime. I was so full after that 10+ course meal and sad about not being able to...More

Three Michelin Star restaurant located in an a side alley. The facade does not stand out, and it blends in so well that it is rather difficult to find. The interior is basically a long, bending hallway that has a small counter, several private rooms...More

During a recent Tokyo visit I tried to secure a seat at Ishikawa, which unfortunately was closed for Golden Week in Japan. So I tried again for my next visit 6 weeks later and was successful. I highly recommend the Japanese sparkling wine for either...More

This restaurant is what should come to your mind when you think of culinary excellence. I have never experienced such impeccable service and doubt any restaurant could mesmerize me the way Ishikawa did during my stay in Tokyo.

This was my first 3 star Michelin meal, so I had high but uncertain expectations. I was fortunate enough to sit up at the bar with a few other guests and the chef along with another staff member served us. I was immediately seated as...More

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around
the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in
Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a
photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old
Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this
day, and there are long-standing restaurants with
geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
