This well-known Gaienmae restaurant serves up Kaga cuisine, which is brimming with a sense of the seasons, in a refined space.
Aoyama Asada is located only a minute walk from the Gaienmae subway station, yet it features a sukiya building style, that is very rare in the heart of Tokyo. Inside, it features a traditional Japanese ryotei style, with its tatami-matted hallway and seasonal flower arrangements. However, it is also furnished with private Western-style rooms and counter seating, so it possesses a modern feel as well. This makes it known as an optimum spot for bringing foreign guests who are not used to Japanese-style rooms.
Kanazawa grew to prominence as the headquarters of the Kaga clan. Kaga cuisine is an elegant style of Washoku (Japanese cuisine) that sees ingredients taken from the sacred Mt. Haku and the Sea of Japan, and prepared in a showy, skillful manner. Aoyama Asada has inherited these skills and beautiful arrangements, and uses them to serve up ingredients that have been delivered directly from Kanazawa, here in Tokyo. For receptions and important meetings, they have various choices available, including the Kaiseki course, which serves up traditional flavors with a fresh essence, the specialty Kaga cuisine course, and the limited seasonal course that is fully loaded with seasonal tastes. Combined with sake prepared using water from the famous springs of Mt. Haku, your party is sure to be a bustling one.
Aoyama Asada is a place where you can savor some historic, well-known flavors, right in Gaienmae. You will want to spend an evening experiencing the hospitality of this restaurant, which interweaves the traditionality of Kaga cuisine with the modernity of Tokyo.
