This is the perfect restaurant for anyone visiting Japan who: a) likes vegetables, b) wants to experience the kaiseke form, and c) doesn't mind being the only foreigner in a restaurant.

My sister was lucky enough to get elusive reservation in this restaurant. They have one counter and one room upstairs. We ate lunch,and everybody at the counter was served at the same time, and the chef explained each dish. Our kaseki meals, theme was " Hervest." We also ordered additional Matsutake rice which was Devine. The price was very reasonable... More
