After struggling through the throngs of locals doing their New Years pilgrimage to nearby Sensoji shrine my daughter and I found our way to this little oasis. Once you cross the threshold of this centuries old farmhouse,which was relocated from Gifu prefecture, you are quickly transported back to a Japan of the pre-Meiji restoration.The warm welcome from the owner and his staff, the wonderful presentation of what Lisa called the " Mother of all bento boxes", and the phenomenal shamisen performance all combined for a very memorable experience. Go at lunch when it is a relative bargain at around $35. Similar kaiseki meals in the city will cost twice as much and won't make you feel like you visited a close friend's home. Direction's can be found in the Frommer's Tokyo edition.
