Yakitori 焼き鳥 (grilled skewered chicken) is a must-try in terms of Japanese cuisine.

In a convivial setting, sharing a few laughs with your neighbours, and having a few beers, yakitori is really a fun experience.
Renoir Coffee Shop is the place to try if you would like to try a 喫茶店 "kissaten" (a Japanese style cafe). It has sort of a vintage atmosphere, all the while being upscale. It is a great place to stop by for cafe and sweets, or even for a business meeting.
You will absolutely love these authentic cafes if you want to experience the retro Showa vibe of the Japanese "kissaten" -a type of European-influenced cafe that was particularly popular up until the 1980s).
