3 Michelin Stars

Ryugin is a small Japanese restaurant located in Roppongi operating for over 14 years.

The chefs prepare and present Japanese cuisine to diners with amazing ingredients from all over Japan. In part, they like to share Japanese harmony and provide an atmosphere that you won't forget.
The name RyuGin means “dragon's voice,” and is derived from a teaching in Zen Buddhism. The owner of the restaurant came across a book about Zen with an interesting story about a heroic person and his comrades. It was from this he was inspired to name his restaurant Ryugin.

Why RyuGin is so special?

It has three Michelin stars to its name and plenty of awards to match. The chef and owner Seiji Yamamoto is all about showcasing exclusive Japanese ingredients that are hard to find anywhere else in the world. He's about treasuring Japanese tradition and priming typical Japanese cuisine in a new light.
RyuGin's menu changes seasonally as they try to use all the best and finest ingredients available at peak of their seasons. The Chef's course is an 8-course affair that combines Japan's richness on a plate. Yamamoto strives to take his diners on a journey through every single dish and every ingredient. This course costs 27,000 yen plus service tax. Worth every penny if you want to taste real Japan!


Dinner runs from 6 pm to 1 am with last orders taken at around 9:30 pm. Reservations for the following month are available from the 1st of every month. They do ask that you book through your hotel concierge if you are overseas and want to make a reservation during your stay.

As a side note, they do charge a service charge ranging from 10-15% depending on whether you get a private room or table seating.

Getting there

Getting here is fairly simple with a couple of options. It's just a short walk from downtown Roppongi.

- 2 minutes walk from Exit 2, Roppongi station (Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line)
- 5 minutes walk from Exit 7, Roppongi station (Tokyo Metro Oedo Line)
