This Ganko japanese restaurant was located in a mansion originally built by a wealthy merchant Tsujimoto in the early Edo era. It was later renovated to become a Japanese restaurant which offers great dining experience.
It has a beautiful Japanese garden inside the mansion, which allows customers to enjoy the well manicured garden scenery while enjoying the Kaiseki cuisine.

I was intrigued by the lockers used to put our shoes when we changed into the slippers provided. The “key” is a wooden tag which had different slots designed and you can only open the locker when it matches the lock.
As this is a post-dated post, I can’t really remember exactly what I had. But the Kaiseki cuisine were presented in their natural taste, dishes were beautifully arranged but not quite suit my taste…
