Restaurants & Cafés


Rengatei sits quietly on gas-lit Ginza Street, and has served traditional fare since 1895. At lunchtime, the place is packed with customers spilling out on to the street. This restaurant is believed to be one of the first in Japan to serve a Western-style menu; rice was first served on a plate here in the early Meiji era, when people preferred rice to bread. Popular dishes include pork cutlets, egg rice, fried oysters, fried lobster and hashed beef with rice.
