Although this restaurant is far from Tokyo it is a must go restaurant. My recommendation is to spend a day in Mount Takao, go to Onsen near the station and then take the restaurant bus to the restaurant and take back the train to Tokyo. The place is amazing and looks like his "sister" restaurant in Tokyo (Tofuya Ukai -... More

This restaurant is a great experience starting at your arrival, you get greeted at the entrance by some of the staff, they even carry your briefcase or bag all the way to the entrance...this is through a beautiful garden that has a great view of the tokyo tower Once inside the building everything is magical, the wooden walls and celling,...

Unbelievable experience a must do when in Tokyo, 45 Kim's from Tokyo centre yet well worth the effort. Hidden away in the forests of mount takao with its wonderful views. The lunch was well timed and amazingly yummy!

Ukai Toriyama is an absolute must visit. It's not the easiest place to get to; there's a long train ride out to Mt. Takao involved - but at least the restaurant provides free bus service to-and-from the station. The restaurant is very much like a Kyoto kaiseki-ryori (multi-course Japanese meal), and the food and service are outstanding. Just make a... More

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.
