Tonkasu was good but not the best for sure. Seems like one of tourist places. Service was quiet rude and hard to get a seat. The sirloins we tried had too much fat on it. Miso soup was just okay. I liked the cabbage salad...More

As the title says, wow those tomatoes! Seriously, I'm still thinking about them roughly a month after eating at Butagumi. I'm pretty sure they were simmered in pork fat or something like that; whatever it was, they were the best tomatoes I had in Japan,...More

Before my recent trip to Tokyo we were watching various YouTube videos about Tokyo and Butagumi was featured multiple times. The hype was real, tonkatsu is now my favorite Japanese dish. Butagumi’s chef is a true artist and his masterpieces are these amazing fried, moist...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
