Experience tempura with “Ichiza Konryu” spirits

A mere 2-minute walk from Ginza-Itchome Station in the heart of the Ginza/Kyobashi area, you will find a quiet building standing just off the main drag. Find your way to the ground floor inside, and you find yourself inside "Ginza Tenharu," established in 2017. Its minimalist atmosphere calls to mind that of a tea house, while the smell of hinoki cypress gently wafts from the counter, and fretwork bearing the motif of a cherry blossom branch casts indirect light down upon its guests.

Now with storefronts in Singapore and Bangkok, "Ginza Tenharu" is helmed by Chef Naoki Eguchi, who honed his skills at establishments such as “Gion Maruyama” in Kyoto and “Kisen,” his family’s Kaiseki restaurant. The omakase(chef’s choice) tempura course features around 14 different items that are swapped out monthly and the dishes he presents with every course demonstrate a flawless combination of Kaiseki sensibilities and tempura fundamentals with every plate. His dishes, made with only the finest and freshest seasonal ingredients, spin a dynamic tale of strengths and weaknesses, as exemplified by the crust he varies on a battered shrimp from beginning to end. He employs sunflower oil in all of his cuisines for the light crunch it provides, pairing it with wine, hand-selected based on importer and qualities, to create a combination of elements that can only be described as perfect. Diners are also treated to a feast for the eyes with every visit, as the implements Chef uses to ply his craft are swapped out for brand-new pieces at regular intervals, featuring tools such as those used in the latter years of the Edo period and those created by artisans.

The L-shaped counter seats 6 people, allowing guests to reserve the entire restaurant with parties of 4 or more. His bearing, with which he earnestly faces each guest in turn, conveys the same spirit of “Ichiza Konryu” present in tea ceremonies, where each exchange is treated as a once-in-a-lifetime interaction. Once you experience the depth of his consideration to detail and the sense of unity it engenders between guests and hosts, you will leave with a fullness of another sort: of spirit. Whether entertaining an important guest or going out on an anniversary date, a visit to "Ginza Tenharu" is a greater joy than you might ever expect. Travelers from abroad may rest assured as well: having worked as the official chef of government establishments overseas in addition to international 5-star resort hotels, Mr. Eguchi speaks perfect English and is happy to accommodate visitors from abroad.

    天婦羅を初めて本格的なお店でいただきましたが、どれも美味しく満足できました。 たまたま他にお客さんがいなくて貸し切り状態であったため、ご主人ともいろいろとお話をできたのも良かったです。楽しい時間を過ごすことができました。

    個人店は店主のお人柄が、店内の雰囲気やスタッフの対応から感じ取れるものですが、とても素晴らしいおもてなしを受け、大変感謝しております。もちろん、お料理も美味しくいただきました。ランチ料金に比して原価が高く、もうけがないのではと勝手に心配しておりました。次回は夜に伺いたいと思っております。 いろいろとお世話になり、ありがとうございました。
