This is one of Japan's most famous restaurants where you can enjoy extremely rare tempura.
Although he was a strict owner typical of a tempura restaurant, he was also a friendly person who was willing to chat with me even during the tense cooking process.
Above all, this is probably the only place in Japan where you can get tempura of this quality at this price.
This is definitely the best place in Japan for its taste, atmosphere, and value for money, so be sure to invite your girlfriend who loves delicious food to try it.

I have visited several times before, but every time I go, I am impressed.
Shrimp, kiss, and conger eel, which are also standard tempura, are delicious every time you go.
You can also get other seasonal items, and it makes me want to come back in a different season.
The price may be high for some people, but I think it's cheap for this quality and service.
General, thank you very much for the store.

It was delicious!
The second shrimp was my favorite because it was medium-soft.
It was also fresh to sprinkle truffle salt on grated daikon radish for oyster tempura.

Reservations seem to be irregular, so be sure to check the reservation start date before making a reservation! !
My first visit to Mikasa, a tempura restaurant I've always wanted to try.
I took the unfamiliar Denentoshi Line to Miyazakidai Station. About 4 minutes walk from the station!!
When I arrived about 10 minutes before my reservation, I was shown to a waiting area. And a lot of wonderful tempura.
The first thing that impressed me was the soba gaki and shiitake mushroom tempura! The shrimp and conger eel were naturally delicious and very satisfying. This tempura is truly impressive.
Thank you for the meal.

I am grateful for the invitation and decided to visit!
I arrived within a 5 minute walk from the station.

I had never eaten tempura with lemon, nuts, figs, etc., so I was surprised, but it was absolutely delicious.

I was really impressed because I don't often get to eat Ginhikari✨

All the ingredients are deep-fried at a high temperature so it's not oily at all and the coating is thin.

Conger eel melts in your mouth. It's unforgettable.

By the time I finished all the courses, I was overwhelmed with emotion.
