Fusion food is common in Japan, and Ukyo is one of the best places for it in Tokyo. Ukyo combines Japanese flavors with French bistro cooking - but it’s not as rich and buttery as traditional French food (because that would be too aggressive for most people in Japan). Expect to eat things like crab-cream croquettes, uni shumai dumplings, and their specialty: egg rice (raw egg mixed with Japanese rice) with shaved truffles on top. Ukyo is upscale but still casual, which makes it a great spot for a nicer dinner during the week without having to get too fancy. Regardless of when you go, be prepared to drink sake - Ukyo has more than 250 kinds.

Yamachou is a perfect spot for a casual udon lunch. The noodles are great, and the smooth jazz soundtrack doesn't hurt either.
Katsu (fried chicken or pork) is a traditional Japanese dish, but Ima Katsu is one of few places to get it perfectly right.

Uoshin is a traditional izakaya and a great introduction to Japanese cuisine. Go heavy on the fish.
Sushi Ishii is one of our favorite spots for a nicer meal that’s still reasonable. Bonus points for the chef being entertaining and very accommodating.
