Ginza Shimogamo Saryo Higashi no Hanare

By Weekender Editor

Steeped in the rich tradition of Kyoto, Shimogamo Saryo’s satellite shop in Ginza offers a unique opportunity to savor the old capital’s cuisine in Tokyo. The restaurant’s name Higashi no Hanare means “the eastern detachment,” indicating Shimogamo Saryo’s dedication to its roots in the ancient capital while making room for some modern Tokyo flair.

The Kyoto-based executive chef arranges the menus for both Kyoto and Ginza locations to ensure the spirit of Shimogamo Saryo holds true even in the east, and features seasonal options and ample Kyoto-sourced vegetables. A great believer in maintaining tradition when needed and innovating when it’s not, the Ginza outfit serves Kyoto classics with an innovative twist in an intimate environment, perfect for dates nights or casual business dinners.

Address: 11F Tokyu Plaza Ginza, 5-2-1 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo
