Kappo Sanoya Description

Located in the serene neighborhood of Kamiizumi, away from the hustle and bustle of Shibuya, Kappo Sanoya is a hidden gem of a Japanese restaurant. This intimate establishment offers a unique dining experience that combines exquisite flavors, seasonal ingredients, and a touch of creativity.

Led by the talented chef Masayuki Sano, Kappo Sanoya specializes in kaiseki cuisine, a traditional multi-course meal that showcases the essence of Japanese culinary art. Each dish is meticulously prepared, with a focus on the delicate and complex flavors of the ingredients. The menu features a variety of dishes, including the signature tea-steamed rice with a frothy broth, as well as expertly crafted meat and seafood dishes. One of the highlights of the dining experience is the presentation, which goes beyond the boundaries of traditional Japanese cuisine. For example, the chef uses liquid nitrogen to transform fresh fruits into refreshing sorbets, adding a modern twist to the meal.

In addition to the exceptional food, Kappo Sanoya offers an extensive selection of carefully curated Japanese sake, which pairs perfectly with the flavors of the dishes. The combination of the exquisite cuisine, the serene ambiance, and the attentive service creates a truly memorable dining experience. Whether you are a connoisseur of Japanese cuisine or simply looking for a unique culinary adventure, Kappo Sanoya is a must-visit destination in Tokyo.

Highly recommend. The food was absolutely delicious - the chef’s approach to each dish was incredible and the plating was beautiful. The service was very helpful and thoughtful throughout the meal. One of the highlights from our trip to Tokyo!


If there is a place I was dreaming of to eat one day, it was Kappo Sanoya in Tokyo. My dream came through and more than I could even dream of. Master Sano and his Staff (or family?) offered to my daughter and me an unforgettable moment, who will last forever in our hearts. His cuisine is so far off the best I ever tasted. Coming myself from a gastronomic environment and from a cooking family, I am still under shock. I admire deeply, not only the cooking skills and philosophy but also the beautiful people behind it. Thank you so much from my daughter and me. Thank you for existing and sharing your passion. The world needs more of you.


A harmony of flavours based on the season. We had a great evening and enjoyed everything. The chef decides the menu and the matching sake. He explained clearly how to best taste tyhe dishes, in clear English. All is very relaxed, no need to fear any mistakes. We got a mix of around 10 dishes with many different fish prepations, fantastic vegetables, great tomato's, really good meat and nice dessert. Seven different sakes for perfect tasting. Good value for money. Easy access next to subway. Very recommended.


Translated from Japanese:

This is Sanoie. It's the usual course, but it changes every month. It comes with salmon roe rice, sashimi, and hassun with chestnuts and ginger that are typical of autumn. There's also persimmons, crab with sesame sauce, matsutake mushroom soup, and rice. Get your rice plain...


Translated from Japanese:

Sanoya for the first time in 6 years after the coronavirus. We provide explanations in English for people from overseas. The sea urchin, eel, and Saga beef sukiyaki were all delicious. The white rice at the end was also good. The Japanese pairing involves famous names such as Juyondai, Hiroki, and Jikon...


Translated from Japanese:

On this day, we ate at Shinsen. I wanted to eat Japanese food and after doing a lot of research, I ended up here. It's near Shinsen Station, but I walked there from Shibuya. It's not that far away and totally within range (゚Д゚) The food is generally nice...
