Kaiseki Ryori is a traditional Japanese multi-course cuisine. Its begins as the simple meals served at the tea ceremony, but later started to become a delicate dining style. Nowadays, Kaiseki is served in specialized restaurants or ryokans (Japanese-style inn).

Kaiseki dishes are prepared by using one of the common techniques of Japanese cooking. However, Kaiseki chefs have considerable freedom to add, omit or substitute courses in order to emphasize the seasonal specialties as well as the chef’s personal style.

If you cannot treat yourself a stay in ryokan, then these restaurants below serve the best Kaiseki course in Tokyo.

1. Akasaka Eigetsu (赤坂 詠月)

#赤坂詠月

Akasaka Eigetsu

The best meal has fourteen courses or so, served by the chef and his wife. Their dish is based on Kyoto taste, very light and delicate.

Specialties here differs depending on which season you go, but some of the best are snapping turtle (Suppon) soup, served with a cocktail of the turtle’s blood, which goes pretty well with syochu, snow crab with a citrus flavor dipping sauce, and a simply smoked shiitake. Simply stunning meal executed with precision, delicacy, expertise, and no small amount of passion. Well worth the effort to dig out this hidden treasure.

They have three kinds of course; 12,000 yen course, 15,000 yen course, and 20,000 course. The seats are limited to 10, so a reservation is a must.
