Where to eat 


Tokyo is a food paradise and its culinary offerings are one of the main tourist attractions. Take eight-seat Sushi Saito, which continues to astound guests (those who can get in) with its flawless morsels or try Kaiseki ryori, an elaborate multi-course meal that showcases Japanese cooking methods. You can dine at Michelin-starred restaurant Ryu Gin and try its most popular ‘Ryu Gin curry’ or enjoy chef Yamamoto’s Roppongi Pudding and take some of it as a souvenir.


At Sushi Yoshitake, dine on its delectable three-star sushi crafted by chef Yoshitake. Yoshitake’s entrée includes a variety of nigiri sushi and tsunami, as well as other ocean-inspired dishes. Here, tender braised octopus is full of flavour, and oysters are paired with shiso and oyster dashi jelly for delicious briny mouthfuls.


Tokyo is home to many exotic cuisines with a plethora of chefs who have perfected contemporary French cuisine. Shuzo Kishida has been recognised for his degustation dinners since establishing Quintessence in 2006, with three Michelin stars. Kishida’s creations–goat’s milk bavarois and meringue ice cream, are must try dishes among other specialties.


What to do


A day shopping at Ginza SIX is what you need to catch-up on all fashion trends. The luxurious shopping district is a hub of high-end brands from international giants like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci to renowned Japanese labels such as Mikimoto and Tasaki. Cruise in the neighbourhood of Shimokitazawa and shop at Haight & Ashbury, a high-end vintage shop for unique Japanese clothing.
