Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
It's taken a surprisingly long time for word to spread about the 13th floor restaurant at Asakusa's The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon – maybe because everybody who's been there was hoping to keep the place to themselves. The menu of bistro-style French food – including dishes like Burgundy-style sauteed scallops and onion gratin soup – is well executed and surprisingly good value, while you can have a proper gin & tonic for a not-unreasonable ¥1,070 a pop. But it's the scenery that really ought to be luring the crowds here: whether you're gazing from behind the floor-to-ceiling windows or sat out on the terrace, you can enjoy one of the best vistas that eastern Tokyo has to offer, crowned by an uninterrupted view of Tokyo Skytree.
