A customer took me there. All the dishes were delicious. However, it was nice that the waiter in a kimono who served the food served the food according to the time it would be served, but since it looked like he would be out by 12:15, I kept asking for more food. Unfortunately, after I heard the voice on the wireless phone saying "Masu", I was in a rush to get the food out and put it down. I appreciate your promptness, but I think the delicious food would have been even more delicious if you had allowed a little more time.


Used for a small party of 6 people. Banquet course 7000 yen 2 hours 30 minutes all-you-can-drink plan. We have a set budget for bottled beer, sake, shochu, etc., so you can drink with confidence. You can enjoy Japanese Kaiseki cuisine in a completely private room with a luxurious feel. However, the amount is small. The location is the basement 1st floor of the Imperial Theater.


Visited in June 2022.
A kaiseki restaurant located in a corner of the retro underground shopping mall of the Imperial Theater.
A completely private room is very convenient.
◆Four seasons kaiseki course 11,000 yen
7 appetizers, 4 sashimi, sweetfish, wagyu beef sukiyaki (forgot to take a photo), hairy crab, squirrel fin chawanmushi rice, assorted water sweets
All the plates are neatly arranged, showing the careful work of the chefs.
Our spirit of hospitality takes into consideration not only the taste, but also the beauty of the appearance, the texture, and the ease of eating. I think the Japanese culinary culture is truly wonderful.
The wait staff dressed in kimono were friendly and welcoming, so I felt relaxed and at ease.
It's a completely private room, so it's recommended for entertaining.
