“We couldn't cancel”
My husband became ill so I called 29 hours before our reservation time and the restaurant would not allow us to cancel without a fee. They said it was their policy. We had to pay 50%,10,900 yen for the privilege of not eating at the restaurant. I understand cancellation on the same day but more t...han 24 hours in advance? For illness? Unfair and rigid.

“The high point of my visit”
You dine in a room with a view of a Japanese garden served by two kimono clad waitresses that kneel next to you as they serve an explain each dish (you are seated in a low table). The food is entirely vegetarian, creative and delicious. The street in front of the restaurant was lined up with cherrie...s in bloom and the restaurant was part of a temple complex. It was a very special experience.

“Great vegetarian experience”
First of all, the food is not simple (as some reviewers wrote in their comments ), so much work is hidden behind every single dish, just to make it look simple. It is pure art ,complimented with fantastic interior and superb service. Shojin ryori is little different from your *medium rare steak wit...h extra fries*. Highly recommended for unique experience!

“Food too simple for a 2-star Michelin restaurant”
Nice atmosphere and friendly reception from the staff, with a private room and a nice view on a private garden. We selected the 10-course menu and were disapointed by too many soups versus elaborated cuisine, in fact only 2 which were indeed very good. Overall, we had much better vegetarian diner fo...r cheaper.

“Unique, exclusive experience in tradional Japan”
This restaurant is one of the top and exclusive restaurants in Tokyo. It is steeped in the deepest and most eclectic Japanse traditions. You follow a set menu according to their strict protocols. The food is amazlng and almost unrecognizable for Westerners. Each dish is like a work of art. You ...typically get 15 or 19 courses. The prices of their set menus are just as exclusive but worth every yen. We can obly be deeply humbled by the amazing craftmanship of the artist-cooks and their amazing staff. This is one of the top things to do across the world.
