Wow! This place was an amazing find. The food was mouth wateringly delicious. The personal service was amazing. Friendly chefs and the owners were simply gorgeous and super friendly. If you want to splash out on a special dinner I can't recommend Mikaku highly enough.

gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
