Popular amongst foreign chefs and sake connoisseur, the finest pairing options

Futaaji opened in January 2017 in Shibuya, Tokyo where there are only a few authentic Japanese restaurants. The restaurant’s name can be translated as two flavors. The name has 2 meanings to the head chef Michiyasu Nishiyama. The first is a lesson taught to him by his teacher while he was training, about the essential points of cooking, which is to find the flavor within the flavor. The other meaning is the flavor of the meal and the flavor of sake. By combining the 2 flavors, the taste can be enhanced. This is the type of experience customers can enjoy at Futaaji.

Nishiyama entered the culinary world at the age of 18 and started his training in Ginza, at a Japanese-style restaurant called Kacyo. After training in several restaurants in Tokyo, he traveled to Switzerland and achieved a Michelin star rating at the famous hot spring Kappo Ryokan Usagiyama, in Zurich. After returning to Japan, he continued his career by working as head chef at the Nishiazabu Ichino restaurant for 4 years, and achieved a Michelin 1-star rating.

In addition to Tsukiji, where he procures his daily ingredients, customers can find dishes that are made using a variety of ingredients sourced directly from the producing area, such as fugu from the Genkainada Sea, and duck from Aomori and Kyoto. Customers can feel the breadth of Nishiyama’s experience in his dishes, such as in the Grilled Eel and Shark Fin Tempura. Another appeal of Futaaji is the option to pair carefully selected Japanese sake with the meals. Keita Akaboshi, who worked as a sake sommelier for 16 years in New York, supervises Nishiyama and helps to further complements his dishes.

There are 6 counter seats, and 2 private rooms with table seats for 4-6 guests. The counter, tables and chairs are lavished with Japanese cypress wood from Nishiyama’s hometown in Ehime prefecture. With a clean, fresh atmosphere, the chairs come equipped with arm rests, so customers can relax and enjoy their meal. Since there is a private entrance for guests, it is possible to enter the restaurant without any trouble. The restaurant is especially suited for entertaining. This is certainly an exquisite Japanese restaurant to keep in mind when searching for a restaurant in Shibuya.
