This restaurant has been around for over 50 years in Yushima in Tokyo’s Shitamachi area. A restaurant loved by great Showa era writer Shotaro ikenami was “Oryori Hanabusa.” With its long establishment and style, and its familiar downtown feel, the thing to enjoy is their simple Japanese dishes using plenty of fresh fish and seasonal vegetables. When you want to be closer to the guests, there is the counter, and when you want to entertain more people, their ornate parlor can accomodate up to 30 people.

In Tokyo’s Yotsuya Araki-Cho, there is “Washoku Kondo,” which has been introduced in the Michelin Guide in the past. This isn’t a stiff Japanese place, but rather a place where you can enjoy it’s reasonable prices and charm. The strength of flavor of the ayu sweetfish from Gifu, the birthplace of the owner, the deep sweetness of Gifu’s specialty Hida beef… The Japanese approach to bring out the characteristics in a simple manner shines here. As they also have a rich supply of sake, we recommend it on a night when you want to have a good drink.
