Kyo Aji

Restaurants, Japanese Shinbashi

Time Out says

Kyo Aji is known as one of the best kaiseki restaurants in Tokyo, and the owner, Kenichiro Nishi, has even had his name appear in the gourmet-focused 'Oishinbo' manga series. The restaurant offers delicate dishes using unique Japanese ingredients such as hamo (conger), konowata (salted sea cucumber intestines), zuiki and soft roe of sea bream. A popular way to finish off a meal is with harasu gohan (rice with fish belly). Reservations fill up as far as one or two months ahead, but if you're lucky enough to get one for a counter seat, you might get a chance to have a nice chat with Nishi himself.
