First day in Tokyo & it started raining, so we ducked into Ginza Aster. It is expensive to begin with - 9,504 yen or about $94 US for 1 small bowl of Hot & Sour soup without shrimp & 1 stuffed crab claw for starters...More

As recommended by our family friends, we cautiously made a reservation and reserved their signature Shark's fin dish. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity. They have Shark's fin farm which makes the price more affordable. We tried two types of Shark's Fin...More

Food was good and the ambience was nice and elegant, but pricey. With the right address in google maps it sent us to the wrong location, our guest had the same problem. The online pricing was lower than the price at the restaurant.More

I visited this restaurant in their Kamakura location for lunch. My main dish was the Hiyashi-chuka with sesame sauce. Very deep, well-flavored sesame sauce with chewy noodles and lots of fresh vegetables. Most surprising, though was the gyoza. Perfectly cooked and very juicy. Not your...More

Ginza Aster is unique in several ways. Americans like myself are spoiled by very good Chinese food, especially if we know the Chinatowns in San Francisco, Honolulu or New York. If one happens to have eaten in Hong Kong or Shanghai, as I have, it...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
