If your kids are into trains and construction, D47 Shokudo is a great place to enjoy lunch or an afternoon tea. D47 is a great place to try food from different prefectures in Japan. From the 8th-floor-restaurant, you have a great view of Shibuya and Shibuya station which is presently under construction. My daughter loved watching the Ginza and Yamanote line trains go in and out of the station. Like its sister Japanese crafts and food store D47 on the same 8th floor, the Shokudo’s goal is to offer food from the 47 prefectures in Japan. For lunch, you can choose from a choice of six-seven set menus from different prefectures. One set menu was enough for my four-year-old daughter and me to share. The restaurant has highchairs and provides child-size dishes and utensils.

The lunch menu offers six to seven set meals – usually two types of meat, two fish and two vegetarian for 1,200 – 1,780 JPY per set. The sets include a main dish, side dish of vegetables, soup, rice, pickles, and tea. The ingredients are mostly organic and come from all over Japan. Each set menu notes the origin prefecture. Menus are available in English. We enjoyed the fried Aji and the Soba meals, as well as, a side of the cold tofu. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented. My daughter was thrilled D47 Shokudo had a chair and eating utensils “just right” for her. D47 is a great place to enjoy some new Japanese meals that one may not have had a chance to enjoy before.
If you plan to have lunch at D47 arrive before 11:30 or you will need to wait 10-20 mins. For dinner best to make reservations. Also note: the restaurant does not have a bathroom so best to visit the 8th-floor bathrooms (far corner fo the same floor) before ordering your meal.
