Takazawa, Tokyo, Japan

May 26th 2014

Amazing Kaiseki dining at Takazawa. Chef Takazawa deliberately shuns Michelin ratings. I have no doubt if he let them rate him he would be a 2 or 3 star. His wife manages the front of the house alone. Max seating is 10. We likes this restaurant much better than Narisawa. Some modern elements but mostly classic Japanese flavors with a twist. Each dish was very intricate and unique. Most are pictured here. Chef gave us a personalized menu in broken english with the title “Enjoy your imagination.” Worth noting – this is literally the first time we ran into americans the entire trip. And of course they were loud, overbearing, and inappropriate. They literally made me cringe.
