Top choice kaiseki in Roppongi, Akasaka & Around

Exquisitely prepared seasonal dishes are as beautiful as they are delicious at this Tokyo outpost of one of Kyoto's most acclaimed kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine) restaurants. Kikunoi’s third-generation chef, Murata Yoshihiro, has written a book translated into English on kaiseki that the staff helpfully use to explain the dishes you are served, if you don't speak Japanese.

Reservations are necessary. There are two seatings at lunch (noon or 12.30pm) and last sitting in the evening is 7.30pm.
