Hidden about 1/2 down the charming path behind the Golden Gai neighborhood sits Cha Cha Hana. A charming restaurant that soon became our ‘local’ while staying in Shinjuku. One of a series of restaurants across tokyo, sporting the same menu – a mix of thraditional , such as Yuba from Kyushu, and modern japanese foods (like lovely shrubs).
Close to Shibuya Crossing, one finds Washoku Nada, a gem of a neighborhood restaurant, Washoku Nada with artfully displayed dishes to the carefully paired ceramics and with a wholesome deliciousness that you feel in your soul.
Ginro – or Silver Furnace – a Robota-Yaki opened October 2015 and offered a parade of lovely dishes in an ambiance combining the modern and ancient; a feeling one gets often traveling around the wonderful nation of Japan
