Ishikawa is building a gastronomic empire, all of it in Kagurazaka. He himself has already 3 stars, his first spin off has also 3 stars, the newest one Hatou has 1 and the latest Kaiseki spin-off will get one soon.
He seems to find those Chefs which have great potential and fosters them to stay in the group in launching them in their own restaurant but part of the group.
He takes great pride in designing those places and does not shy away from spending a lot of money to make them just perfect.
Guchokuni, the lates one, is a Kaiseiki/Kappo place. 8 counter seats, 4 on a table, five Chefs on the fourth floor.
The Daisho is very talented. The ingredients are of course very good, some of them group sourced and some of them directly sourced. However, what makes him different (and maybe gave him his own places) is his ability to come up with stunning twists to familiar dishes. May it be a different texture or an interesting combination of flavors, combined with his impeccable technique theses dishes become really tasty.
A wonderful addition to the Kagurazaka dining scene.
And a big shout out to Ishigawa Sensei for finding this raw diamonds and fostering them to perfection.
