Kado/
Kagurazaka: Japanese
₯3268-2410
€Data
The hostess at Kado
greets customers
with a polite, "Dou-
zo, agate kudasai."
As when visiting any
Japanese home,
guests are requested
to leave their shoes
in the genkan. Lo-
cated in a Showa-era
house built in 1950
near Kagurazaka's
Akagi Shrine, this
quaint cafe and
restaurant offers a
glimpse of what life
was like in pre-high
rise Tokyo.

The main dining area
is a tatami room
that opens onto a
narrow veranda with
just enough space to
accommodate four
very slim people.
Table seating with
sofas and chairs can
be found in the
small back room.

The food, with its
emphasis on fresh
ingredients, is
simple but not with-
out little sur-
prises. Densely
satisfying taro root
croquettes open to
reveal a single
golden ginko nut
nestled in the cen-
ter. Wooden ear
mushrooms peek out
of the fluffy omu-
rice. The lunch sets
are available from
11:30-2:30 for about
Y1000. Go for an
early lunch to beat
the crowds, or stop
in during cafe time
(from 2:30-5pm) for
a coffee or a nice
cup of Chinese or
Japanese tea. Dinner
is served from 5-
11pm.
