Traditional Tokyo-style kaiseki? Is there such a thing?
I will soon be traveling to Tokyo and Kyoto.
We will have some traditional Kyoto-style Kaiseki in while in Kyoto.
And in Tokyo, for modern-style kaiseki, we have a reservation at Ryugin.
Can you suggest a restaurant in Tokyo that is wonderful, more traditional than Ryugin, but not Kyoto style? Something perhaps more of a Tokyo style, or at least representative of a different part of Japan?
The restaurant does not need to be strictly Kaiseki, but I do love a long meal with surprises. :-)
Gomangoku in Sendagaya (http://www.bento.com/rev/1881.html ) does a nice Tohoku-style kaiseki menu.
And Nagamine in Ginza (http://www.bento.com/rev/3041.html ) prepares an interesting vegetable-centered kaiseki.
Note that none of the above are as elaborate or expensive as Ryugin or the fancier places in Kyoto, but they should have some interesting dishes.
