Ishikawa Kagurazaka attire

Hi everyone,

What is typical summer attire at Ishikawa Kagurazaka or similar traditional Japanese fancy restaurants? Haven't quite figured out what's acceptable yet in Japan.

  1. There's no dress code as such, but at least during the week most patrons will probably be in some sort of business/formal attire. I've seen people wearing anything and everything there, though.

      Thanks! Glad I don't need to buy a jacket while I'm here.

        No need for that at all. Mind you, you are supposed to magically appear as if you do not sweat at all, so get yourself one of those small face towels and use it before you enter.

          Luckily our res is quite late at night, so I'm hoping it might be tolerable weather.
