This Japanese restaurant is inside Ueno Park. Lovely view! Must be amazing during Hanami season.
Sat on the second floor. So comfortable~
Hana-kago-zen: translated to “flower basket meal”. It is often said that “Japanese eat with their eyes”. So right on! Taste is secondary, celebrating Japanese aesethics comes first. Most of the pretty things in the basket are veggy and tofu, all cold. Chawanmushi and rice with beans(this is so good) and miso soup are of course hot. Rice and soup are refillable. Will come back for tea and sweets!
