I don't want to give away too many details here since I think it's better to be surprised by the show but Kagaya is 100% worth it for a night out in Tokyo. It's technically an Izakaya run by Mark but you're really here for Mark's unique brand of show not for dinner (although that was good too). The entertainment... More

This restaurant will make you laugh. The owner is a one man show that interacts with all the costumers and will make you laugh a lot with all his jokes, costumes and surprises. The food is also nice, but you don't go to Kagaya for the food. Remeber to go to the toilet.

Let's be honest, you're here for the show and it's well worth eating a mediocre meal for the shenanigans the owner pulls off. One of the most unique and memorable experiences I've had.

Dining with home style Japanese cousine cooked by the mother of owner. The most important - its a one actor show. And show is hilariously funny. Not kids friendly because of smoking and vulgar jokes... but its something;) You will smile and laugh all the time. Great mood guaranteed. Choose English style or French;)

I didn't know what to expect but was VERY pleasantly surprised! Great Humor and Very Fun environment on top of the great food! You won't be disappointed! Reservations must be made ahead of time and well worth it.

Kagaya is the sort of place Where you'd find the best host, working a wondrous pace. He'll bring you loads of food and drink, more if you're keener. Not saying it's a bad thing, but he kept gesturing at my weiner. Frog/10

I read about this place before I visited Tokyo and was also told about it. Nothing could have prepared me for the experience however. Too much information about what occurs would spoil the experience so all I will say is go if you can....you won't be sorry :)

Just go! The experience is unforgettable. An early visit or reservation is recommended. The Master is a true artist. P.S. Pick Bulbasaur, and order Oolong tea.

Neighborhood Profile
Odaiba / Shiodome / Shinbashi
Odaiba is an entertainment hotspot with a giant ferris wheel, concert halls, amusement arcades and lots of shopping. It also boasts Oedo-onsen-monogatari, a hotspring that recreates old Edo-era ambiance and is very popular with foreign visitors. Shiodome has ultra-modern office buildings where you can often find restaurants with a great high-rise view of Tokyo. The neighboring area of Shinbashi is a district of much older commercial buildings and it's a great place to join 'salary men' enjoying a drink and snacks at street stalls under the railway bridges after work.
