Japanese in Kōrakuen & Akihabara

Set in an old wooden house with a white lantern out front, Kado specialises in katei-ryōri (home-cooking). Dinner is a set course of seasonal dishes (such as grilled quail or fresh tofu). At lunch there's no English menu, so your best bet is the カド定食 (kado teishoku; ¥850), the daily house special. Bookings are required for the dinner course.

In the entrance is a tachinomi-ya (standing bar), where you can order small dishes (around ¥300) à la carte, paired with sake in the evenings.
