Just trying to find this place is half the experience. Once you find it you will feel like you stumbled into a magical world hidden away in another reality. Haha. The interior is like an old homely cabin filled with history and stories. The vegan...More

We were recommended this place by a friend who had been earlier in the year (also on the advice of a friend). It took a little bit of finding, but was well worth the effort we went to in locating it. Situated in an alleyway...More

My husband and I went to have dinner at Mikoan. for 1000 yen you can't go wrong. She gave us each a different set so we got to try 10 different dishes, plus miso soup and a generous bowl of brown rice. Everything was delicious!...More

I've eaten at this tiny hole-in-the-wall with funky peace-poster and cat decoration several times. The food is prepared to order, served perfectly cooked, and is always fascinating. (Don't go if untidiness disturbs you!) You sit at the counter, she cooks right in front of your...More
