Exquisite, graceful service. Delicious food. Beautiful surroundings, with traditional Japanese gardens. We went mid summer and saw fireflies in the gardens.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who lived in Tokyo for a few years. It takes around one hour from Tokyo center to reach the restaurant but it's absolutely worth it. You are greeted by very friendly staff and escorted to the Privat little room. You have a few set menus to choose from ( average 8500Yen) and have... More

This is a restaurant that one must try once if you have the time and budget to spare, We asked our hotel concierge to book even before we arrived at the hotel. The journey to the restaurant is a bit tricky but well worth the trouble once you get there. Restaurant shuttle picked us up at the train station, upon... More

late July-2014 Have been back a few times since my last review some, 4 years ago. (The lunch time is just as recommended as well if you decided to go to Takao-san in the morning. You may find a simple change of clothes n body-clean wet tissue, very helpful during warmer months, though.) Went again, n thought it is worth... More

We were on Mount Takao, and decided to take the shuttle from the station to this restaurant. We felt underdressed, but were put into a private room in a lovely garden setting with a stream coming through. We had the grilled chicken course - the did offer an English menu. The service was great. Worth a day trip from Tokyo.

From the moment we arrived until we entered the car to drive back to Tokyo, the service was absolutely impeccable. The entire staff provided a remarkable level of service. We were escorted to our private dining area through a scenic path right out of a storybook. The food was incredible. My friends chose the traditional beef dinner which was delectable... More

Being located in Hachioji, it takes at least an hour or more from the buz of central tokyo, however this place is worth the visit for special occasion, a relaxed lunch perhaps. The restaurant ground is composed of numbers of small traditional houses/huts in the mist of a highly curated garden and streams.The service is impeccable and the food is... More

A beautiful Japanese restaurant where everyone gets their own little traditional hut to have an amazing dinner. I usually hate taking the kids menu because it's always the same thing but here I don't hesitate. It's probably the best kids menu ever!

This old traditional place is best for special occasion. We went with 11 family members to celebrate New Year in an individual villa. Each room is made in a traditional tea house. Our room was one of the largest for 12 people and it was located at the end of river in the garden and close to outside toilet. You... More

I don't think that too many visiting gaijins know about this superb place right in the outer suburbs of Tokyo. You need to book but there are no set meal times so you can go anytime after 11 am when the restaurant opens. A free shuttle bus takes you from Takaosanguchi Station into a little valley away from all the... More
