Ukai Tofuya (Shiba koen, Tokyo) – Culinary Lunch Oasis

Ukai Tofuya at the base of Tokyo Tower in Shibakoen is one of my most favorite Tokyo culinary lunch destination. Ukai specializes in tofu cuisine, which compliments the seasonal fish and vegetables they also serve.  The restaurant is located in a lovely Japanese garden which adds to the excitement of one’s meal as you approach you special room to eUkai Tofuya Gardennjoy lunch or dinner. I highly recommend lunch at the Ukai Tofuya because the garden views from all the private rooms are just lovely. Reservations are necessary so call a few weeks ahead.

UKAI.CO., LTD has 14 restaurants in the Tokyo and Kanagawa area that specialize in Tofu, Teppanyaki, and seasonal Japanese cooking. I have been to quite a few of the restaurants but by far my two favorite are the one in Shibakoen and also at Ukai Toriyama at Mt. Takao which specializes in seasonal grilled food. A great location for a late lunch or early dinner after climbing Mt. Takao this autumn.
