Taste “the essence of Japan” in Ginza by a chef who is representative of Japan.

Ginza Koju is Japanese cuisine restaurant located in Ginza -known as an expensive restaurant town which is representative of Japan- has won world gourmet guide award for seven consecutive years. The restaurant owner is Toru Okuda, a Japanese cuisine chef representative of Japan. Ginza Koju is a reputable restaurant loved by food lovers for its dishes which allows guests to experience the four seasons and the essence of Japan with their five senses.

Chef Okuda, born in Shizuoka prefecture in 1969, began his training in local Japanese cuisine restaurant Kikuya after graduating from high school. In 1999, after further training in Kyoto’s Ayu No Yado Tsutaya and Tokushima’s famous Aoyagi, he opened Shunkashuto Hanamikoji in Shizuoka. In 2003, he successfully opened Ginza Koju in Ginza. Word spread, and Ginza Koju has won world gourmet guide award for seven consecutive years. Chef Okuda has since opened Ginza Okuda, also in Ginza, and Paris Okuda in France. He is now working as the first runner to spread the world cultural heritage Japanese cuisine to the world. To honor great achievement, he has been commissioned by the head of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries and Food as Goodwill Ambassador for popularizing Japanese cuisine.

Ginza Koju is a Chef Okuda's base. The restaurant was named after close friend and late master craftsman of Karatsu ware, Koju Nishioka, who crafted the dishware used in the restaurant. The elegant atmosphere of the restaurant brings out Okuda’s “dignified” dishes, made with the desire to allow guests to experience the “Hashiri, Sakari, Nagori” (totality) of the four seasons. Though there is nothing unconventional about the restaurant, there is something “new” about the world it creates – you can experience it through your eyes, tongue, the atmosphere of the restaurant; one can truly experience “Japan” with the five senses. Time spent here with friends or colleagues will undoubtedly be a relaxed and enjoyable one that makes you forget your surroundings.

    まだそれほどの回数は訪れていないのですが、大将(奥田氏)が穏やかに出迎えてくれ、”帰ってきた”という錯覚を抱かせるような居心地の良さがあります。毎月変わるというメニューで、まさに旬の食材が提供されており、驚くほどの美味しさはもちろんのこと、食材そのものの意外性、調理法の斬新さなど、素晴らしいアイディアの数々は五感を飽きさせません。大将やスタッフの方々との会話も楽しく、妻と一緒に素敵なひと時を過ごさせて頂きました。また今回は、食べ残りを持ち帰り可能なものがあり(珍しいことなのかもしれません)、外出できない高齢の母に「小十」の味を初めて体験させてあげることができたことは大変嬉しかったです。どうもありがとうございました。季節が移り変わりましたら、またぜひ訪れたいと思います。
