Tofu-ya Ukai

4-4-13 Shiba Koen
Tokyo, 105-0011, Japan
TEL: 81-3-3436-1028

Housed in a 19th-century sake brewery that was relocated from the countryside, Tofuya Ukai sits at the base of Tokyo Tower amidst zen gardens (complete with a stream and water wheel) visible from each of the restaurant's 55 private tatami dining rooms. Each is outfitted with low, dark wooden tables and chairs with leg wells beneath. Kimono-clad waitresses serve traditional kaiseki (multi-course) meals featuring the house-made tofu, which is deep fried, smooth, floating in soy milk, or simmered in ginger, along with selections such as sashimi, grilled fish, seasonable vegetables, rice, and miso.

Insider Tip:

A trip up to one of Tokyo Tower's observation decks affords views over the city and, depending on the weather, a distant Mount Fuji.
