Small, hidden place near Shinjuku station.
Seat at the counter and see the chef and his assistants prepare the best tempura you have ever eaten: they are fresh (the eel and clam ware alive before being prepared in front of you) and they serve you portion by portion, so it’s always hot.
Other traditional dishes – rice, soup, small appetizers – are also served and the house sake is good and decently priced.
There is another branch at Takashimaya store, also near Shinjuku station, but the food is a little bit inferior.
