Great experience and a beautiful setting

We went here, post Mt. Takao walk, to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was great (we had the chicken set menu) and the service was good too (although, I should say that, whilst very helpful and knowledgeable, our server was a little too familiar for our liking - she was obviously listening... read more

The food was fantastic for certain. The staff were friendly and helpful. The best part was the setting in the centre of the woods. It's spectacular.

Two hours by train from downtown Tokyo but a world apart. Set in the trees of Mount Takao, the series of small huts where you eat your meal in privacy are an oasis of peace. Staff brought in a brazier of red hot charcoal and we cooked our own chicken and vegetables while we chatted and relaxed. We left our... More

22 years ago when we lived in Tokyo for 2 years we used to visit this restaurant often and took all our visitors there. Thankfully it hasn't changed a bit and its still an incredible experience. The food is really good, but it's the whole package that is so amazing. It is quintessentially Japan for me. For a really special... More

A magical place for an authentic Japanese meal. Lots of small huts and some larger ones scattered around streams, bridges and gardens with lights (electric and flames) to set the mood. Delightful setting ... Wish we had arrived before sundown to appreciate it in daylight (when photography is easier!) as well as the evening. As part of a large group,... More

Amazing place. All separate dining rooms (we were in our own room) along the valley. Great scenery, staff brilliant and good the best we have had in Japan. Worth the trip but plan ahead.

I went to this restaurant a few days ago and just loved it! It is a beautiful Japanese restaurant in the middle of the woodlands! The concept is very interesting. I have never seen such a restaurant before. It is ideal for families, and friends who want to enjoy good food and nature as well. I would definitely go back... More

If you have never been to Japan before this is an experience that you will want to have. It will not be cheap but it will be worth every penny you spend so if you plan on having one meal that is so different that you will remember forever this is where you go. one of the suburbs of Hachioji,...

After a long travel and tour day, we headed here for dinner as my friend really missed this restaurant and wanted her niece to experience this special restaurant. It was a long one-hour train ride from Yokohama station to Hachioji city on the JR Yokohama line. From here, the 4 of us caught a cab and arrived at the restaurant... More

A friend who lives in Tokyo brought us to UKAI TORIYAMA in Takao for our last evening in Japan and we had a magic dinner in this wonderful traditional Japanese restaurant ( made of a cluster of traditional houses and tea rooms), out of time and set in beautiful hills on the border of Tokyo. The poetry of the location... More
