In 2013, traditional Japanese cuisine, or washoku, was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. At Tokitarazu, a Japanese restaurant that opened in 2017 in Hiroo, you can enjoy kaiseki, traditional course menus featuring seasonal washoku ingredients that are specially selected and sourced directly from the producers. The kaiseki-inspired authentic cuisine at Tokitarazu is made from fresh ingredients from all over Japan. The seafood is delivered every day from Tsukiji Market and local fishermen in the Sagami Bay area. The dashi (broth), serving as the base for most of the dishes, is delicately prepared every day from Hidaka kombu kelp, which is considered one of the finest ingredients for making dashi.

In addition, Tokitarazu baosts a rare, global prize-winning Japanese sake collection, as well as a wide selection of Japanese shochu, wine and liquor that go well with all kinds of dishes. English menu and service available.
