Akasaka Kikunoi: Kyoto's Kaiseki Cuisine in Tokyo

This 2-Michelin star kaiseki restaurant serves exquisite traditional Kyoto flavors in the middle of Tokyo.

Feel free to follow favy!
Akasaka Kikunoi is hidden down a Tokyo backstreet; to get to the restaurant you will go through a narrow path lined with bamboo and maples curves that will transport you to Kyoto.

The restaurant was originally established in 1912 in Kyoto and is currently headed by the third-generation owner-chef Yoshihiro Murata. He is one of the most acknowledged masters of kaiseki, the intricate, multicourse style of dining that is the pinnacle of Japan’s cuisine.
He owns two restaurants in Kyoto, each one has a different style: a formal traditional restaurant known as ryotei, and counter seating overlooking the kitchen known as kappo.
Here in Tokyo, the Akasaka branch combines those two separate elements under the same roof. Upstairs you dine in secluded privacy at low tables in exquisite teahouse-style rooms. The main ground-floor dining room has a more open and relaxed feel, with seating either at tables, in tatami alcoves or at the two counters, where you can watch the chefs at work preparing your dinner.
As kaiseki meals are traditionally prepared, the menu changes to reflect the seasons.
Each month you'll be able to taste incredible seasonal ingredients in a degustation menu, following the pattern of a traditional Kaiseki meal.
Being a 2-Michelin star restaurant, expect to spend from 29,000 to 43,000 yen for dinner.
And don't forget to make a reservation!
