Very good washoku place on the 4th floor of an uncharacteristic building at Kagurazaka. Small restaurant with only one semi-private zashiki, and about 6 counter seats. The chef is still quite young I think. Even though he was so busy cooking everything by himself, he still managed to throw a joke or two at us – funny guy! The food is nice and the atmosphere is casual and relaxing.

I got to Kagurazaka a bit early and had a nice ice-cream at Gelateria Theobroma. 630yen for two flavours. I had Marron and bitter chocolate. The price is for take-out. There are a few chairs and a small table next to the door where you can sit and eat the take-out ice-cream, but if you want to sit inside at the cafe space, you need to pay 100yen more.
