Ginza Komon in Tokyo epitomizes the quintessence of Japanese dining with its meticulous attention to detail and a sublime blend of tradition and innovation. Led by the skilled Chef Kotaro Asakura, this restaurant presents a culinary journey through kaiseki cuisine, focusing on the nuanced flavors of seasonal ingredients sourced from across Japan.

From the moment you step inside Ginza Komon, the ambiance reflects the sophistication of Ginza itself—understated yet elegant. The décor, with its... More

Fast forward to Dec 2023, when Ginza Komon was the venue of choice for a reunion with my Hong Kong ‘family’🥰. We paired our matsubagani & black truffle course with some Juyondai classics (naturally 😉) and the newly released Jikon Kioke (cedar tanked brewed) Kimoto Tojo Akitsu Yamada Nishiki🤩🍶. A deliciously decadent way to kick off the festive season🦀🎄! As always, my sincere thanks to chef 浅倉鼓太郎 and Keiko Asakura for their warm hospitality and generous service🙏🏻.... More

The long overdue catch up on a year of dining experiences continues with the stunning Matsubagani course at Ginza Komon—the kaiseki evolution of the much loved, and now relocated, kappo/izakaya Kirakutei. 🥰🦀❤️🍶

It’s been amazing to watch the evolution of Kirakutei. From a high end but still casual restaurant quite a way out of central Tokyo, to a refined kappo experience in the heart of Ginza. Chef keeps pushing, trying new things, and isn’t afraid to let go of past favorites.

As part of their recent move, they’ve renamed the restaurant to Ginza Komon (銀座鼓門), signaling a more dramatic shift from their past. The new space is absolutely gorgeous, and the quality really shines through.

They’re... More

Ginza Kirakutei 銀座器楽亭 1st visit — on the 8th floor of a humble, unassuming building in Ginza, very warm atmospheric, both chef and his wife were super friendly. Matsuba crab was the star of the show but there was also a good variety of other high quality ingredients the Moroko tempura was fried to perfection. Good sake selection too. •

Kirakutei. Always delicious, always creative, always a lot of saké.

Another visit to this casual fine dining Kaiseki restaurant. New dishes, new flavour, same great execution and hospitality.

New location in the middle of Ginza. Slightly more refined and also more expensive. Good selection of sakes, but also at a price. The food is fantastic.
The starting dish, a chawanmushi with a plum sauce on top of it, was maybe my favourite closely followed by asparagus dish.

One of those amazing restaurants that could only be in Japan — Kirakutei (器楽亭) is a gem. Particularly if you love great seafood and saké, you must go. And good news if the current location is a bit far — they’re moving to Ginza next month.

Some highlights from a ridiculously good meal at Kirakutei last night with @be53_beauchamp. Outstanding saké selections as well, super friendly staff. Worth the trek.
