We went with my in-laws for dinner and had a wonderful, memorable evening. The restaurant boasts stunning surroundings and the food was absolutely delicious. This is one of those places you know you need to go back and visit again one day.

We were told about this by some friends who recommended that we go. On the way there we questioned whether it was going to be the effort to travel there. What an amazing restaurant, we had a party of 4, so we were able to book a private room. The gardens, atmosphere, service and food was impeccable. To answer the... More

If you are in the Mt. Takao area, you have to go here...period. That is, if you can get in! We were blessed, as they had an opening. It was late, and dark, when we called, but they had a bus come pick us up at the train station...no charge. As we approached the restaurant, there were firing torches along... More

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 to our conversation and laughing at certain...

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.
