Restaurants in Tokyo

The modern, red-and-black-walled restaurant has the freshest sushi in Tokyo.

One of the last vestiges of pre-war architecture in Shinjuku, the building housing the flagship Tsunahachi tempura restaurant (there are now dozens of them all over Japan) stands out amid the nearby skyscrapers.

Open, airy, and contemporary (floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick, wooden floors, and ulphostered banquettes), Union Square brings the success of New York chef Danny Meyer's cafe of the same name to Tokyo, where it's reinterpreted by chefs Michael Romano and Yoshichika Matsuda.

Impressive views of the Tokyo skyline are the backdrop for Japanese fine dining at Kozue, located on the 40th floor of the Park Hyatt Hotel.

Come here for the beautifully textured chilled udon noodles. The ginjo-style sake called Koku-Ryu has the fragrance of pears and the mellow freshness of springwater.
