Fantastic Kaiseki in Tokyo

I'm in Tokyo for two weeks, and I've got enough budgeted for one more really nice meal before I go home on Friday.

I'd prefer it to be a traditional Japanese kaiseki type meal, and was wondering if someone could recommend a good place to go for it. I'm staying at the ANA Hotel in Tameike/Akasaka, but I'm willing to travel a bit. Must be able to start as late as 7:30 or so since I'm working days.

Price range preferably 15000-20000 yen, although I can go a little higher if need be (or lower if something good can be had for less!)

Looking forward to some great suggestions. Thanks!

  1. Kozue in the Park Hyatt has excellent food and nice pottery, and they're very accessible to English-speaking diners.

          You need to stop this work nonsense for a moment and move on to more important stuff like letting us know about your Kaiseki experience.

          1. A Japanese friend recently had kaiseki for LUNCH at Ichimatsu near Asakusa. It was 3,500 yen for lunch, and they also had a 5,000 yen lunch. Apparently it is much more expensive at dinner for the same thing. Reservations are highly recommended.
            Surprisingly, they have a Web site.
            More surprisingly, there is an English version.

            Prices listed on the English web site are higher than what my friend paid, so maybe they have a "tourist rate." In any case, confirm prices when you reserve.
