Kyo Aji


Restaurants & Cafés


Kyo Aji is known as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Tokyo. The owner, Kenichiro Nishi, is a major figure in the restaurant industry, as his name appeared in comic books called ‘Oishinbo’, which started the gourmet boom in Japan. The restaurant offers delicate dishes using unique Japanese ingredients such as hamo (conger), konowata (salted sea-cucumber intestines), zuiki and soft roe of sea bream. A popular way to finish off a meal is with harasu gohan (rice with fish belly). Reservations fill up as far as one or two months ahead. If you are lucky enough to get one for a counter seat, you might get a chance to have a nice chat with Mr Nishi himself.
