Japanese kaiseki meal, lacking the wow factor. I would expect more surprises and creativity if i spend over 26000 yen on dinner. Multiple dishes are cooked on the charcoal grill (beef, ise ebi, conger eel). I thought I was eating at a yakitori restaurant. Chef...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
