Akasaka Kikunoi
赤坂 菊乃井

Tokyo Japanese Cuisine

"A Kyoto of the East" nestled in the hubbub of Tokyo.
A proud 2 Michelin Starred establishment which represents Kyoto and Japanese cuisine located in Tokyo.

“A small stone-paved path, lined by bamboo trees which suddenly appears in the middle of Akasaka’s skyscrapers and Tokyo’s metropolis. Most can hardly believe their eyes when they see the serene traditional Kyo-Sukiya-zukuri architecture building which is a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the modern city that surrounds it.

Akasaka Kikunoi continues to deliver the true spirit of Kyoto’s hospitality through its cuisine, plateware and atmosphere within Tokyo. It combines the formality and tradition of Kyoto Kaiseki together with comfort, which can be felt in its relaxing horigotatsu and conventional chair seating. The liveliness of the chefs can be enjoyed at the counter, while a more leisurely time can be spent in the private rooms, and countless refined dishes full of the feel of the seasons can be experienced to the full in both.

Experience the world-class cuisine which represents Kyoto and its traditions at Kikunoi in Tokyo. “
