The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon Restaurant & Bar


Bars, Restaurants & Cafés


It's taken a surprisingly long time for word to spread about the 13th floor restaurant at Asakusa's The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon – maybe because everybody who's been there so far was hoping to keep the place to themselves. The menu of bistro-style French food – including dishes like braised beef cheek in red wine sauce, onion gratin soup and spicy goose liver terrine – is well executed and surprisingly good value, while you can have a proper gin & tonic for a not-unreasonable ¥1,000 a pop. But it's the scenery that really ought to be luring the crowds here: whether you're gazing from behind the floor-to-ceiling windows or sat out on the terrace, you can enjoy one of the best vistas that eastern Tokyo has to offer, crowned by an uninterrupted view of Tokyo Skytree.
