Restaurants & Cafés


Jubako is a high-class eel restaurant which has been in business for 220 years. In 1955, the restaurant was moved from Asakusa to a traditional Japanese-style house in Akasaka. It only offers a set menu - for lunch it serves seasonal otohshi (a small appetiser), roasted eel liver, koi koku (stewed carp), broiled eel, rice and dessert. Shirayaki (eel cooked without sauce) is added to the dinner menu. You can also order uzaku (eel and vegetable with vinegar sauce) or abalone cooked in salt crust on the side. The restaurant only has private rooms and guests can enjoy views of the Japanese garden. Because of its location, the restaurant is often used for business dinners and can be pricey. When making reservations, you can ask for either the Japanese room with its hori-gotatsu (Japanese-style table built into the floor) or Western-style tables. Note there is a service charge of 15 per cent.
