Ginza Kojyu is one of those ultra high-end Tokyo Michelin-starred omakase kaiseki restaurants that will cost between $200-$300 per person. Where the Japanese cuisine will knock your socks off — and hopefully you can find a friend to foot the bill.
But it’s also a restaurant where the chef speaks English! And explains each step of the course he’s skillfully crafting for you.
We need to get this shop added to our “best restaurants in Tokyo” guide.
“Since it was just my friend and I, we were seated at the counter, which ended up being the best possible outcome since we were able to chat with the chef and watch him prepare our food in front of our eyes.” (JapanTravel)
