This is some something extraordinary. Food and service is just fantastic. Simple as that. It’s more than a restaurant, is a memory for life, hard to find the entrance, sex seats in front of the chef and the rest is history. Absolutely brilliant!

All the dishes of "Ishikawa" are really great. There are many fine Japanese restaurants in the Japan, but there are few opportunities to meet these great dishes. All of the dishes are simply refined, deep and delicate. There are a lot of dishes finished up...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

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.
