My daughter and I traveled from Hawaii to Japan and was looking forward to eating an authentic Kaiseki Dinner. Since we were staying at the Yokohama Royal Park Hotel, the Japanese restaurant Shikitei on the 68th floor in the hotel was a perfect location since it also featured a stunning view of the waterfront.

My daughter and I arrived at the restaurant at 5:30 PM as their earliest dinner reservation. We wanted to enjoyed the food and sunset during our dining experience even though sunset was about 7:00 PM. We definitely enjoyed both the food and sunset.

We were quickly seated at a nice window table and our order was taken for drinks, which my daughter had Oolong Tea and I had their Sauvignon Blanc Juice (white grape juice) and their Hisui drink (Macha flavor non-alcoholic drink). The Hisui was a beautiful jade color Macha drink topped with edible gold flakes. Beautiful and full flavored.

Our server confirmed that we ordered the Minato Kaiseki and that we had a choice of the Japanese Beef Sirloin or the Sukiyaki Hot Pot. We picked this specific Kaiseki beforehand because we wanted the Japanese Beef Sirloin (Wagyu).

Our dinner started with the first dish which was Mozuku Seaweed, Shrimp, Yam, and Cucumber. That was a terrific refreshing combination of ingredients to get us started.
Next was the Egg Tofu, Steamed fish and Shrimp soup. It was nicely presented, tasteful, and the steamed fish was perfect.
We were then served a nice plate of assorted sashimi. Nicely presented and flavorful.
Soba noodles with mushrooms were next and that had a rich unique flavor.
A grilled fish with miso paste was nicely presented and the grilled fish was terrific! Both my daughter and I agreed as we ate it.
A subtle dish of eggplant, herring, and Bean refreshed our palate.
Then the Japanese Beef Sirloin was beautifully served and the beef was perfectly cooked, full of flavor, and as tender as should be expected.
We then had nigiri sushi and miso soup to finish up the main courses.
We ended with another beautifully presented dish of watermelon, mango, and cherry.

Overall, the Kaiseki dinner was terrific! The combination of ingredients and flavors were perfect! But what made the individual dishes stand out was the sequence of the dishes. It was well thought out in the order that they were served!

Thanks very much to the Chef and Staff at Shikitei for a well-presented, terrific dinner and also a beautiful view! Aloha!

This restaurant is in the Yokohama Landmark Tower (the one that looks like the tower of Mordor) in the 68th floor having absolutely fantastic views! The restaurant is beautiful, full of little room for price dining. Kaiseki style food dishes are beautiful. They allowed child to order a separate dish with teppanyaki meat that made others drool. Fast and kind service. The restaurant closes about at 11pm and they make sure you will leave by that time.
