Is anyone overseas still making reservations for restaurants? Even with the uncertainty of Japan opening up their borders anytime soon.

Hi Saito-San, first of all wanted to let you know this is a great website. I am looking forward to visiting Japan again soon.

I have been looking at this restaurant called Haramasa in Tokyo. It reminds me a little of Kadowaki (truffle rice and other dishes), is there any link between these two restaurants?

Would you recommend me to visit Haramasa? If I make the reservation for lunch, will it be possible to order their most special dinner course?

Thank you very much.

Haramasa gives you the impression that they are a kappo restaurant that serves trendy "Tokyo-style" cuisine, which is clearly different from the traditional kaiseki cuisine of Kyoto.
You could even say that Haramasa resembles Kadowaki because they both serve clay pot rice with truffles. However, I personally prefer Haramasa over Kadowaki.
(They were one of the few Kaiseki restaurants in Tokyo that I liked the most. But the prices for their full-course meals went up substantially after they relocated, and their cost performance deteriorated, so I haven't been going there these days.)
Well, nevertheless, there is no change to my assessment that they are an establishment for which there is no harm in trying once as a Tokyo-style kaiseki restaurant.
If you are going out of your way to get there, I'd like you to definitely enjoy their sashimi in season, to be savored with shoyu mixed with the innards of a monkfish; "gout" somen noodles with dried mullet roe and caviar; and "clay pot rice" sprinkled with truffles.
(If you tell me the name under which you will make a reservation) I can communicate with them in advance so that they will definitely offer these signature dishes to you even for lunch. Thus, please definitely think this over.

Hello Saito San and everyone, wanted to ask if anyone has been or know about a restaurant called Yukimoto in Nagano? How is it? Seems the Tabelog rating is very high. Is it possible for first time customer to make a reservation through hotel concierge?

Thank you

The chef is from the same famous restaurant, Shoufukurou as chef Matsukawa of Tokyo. I heard rumors that the Kaiseki dishes utilizing wild game (bear, boar,duck) is exquisite and I have been thinking of visiting it for many years as well.
It's just that it takes 2 hours from Nagoya, which is much farther than going to Kyoto from Tokyo so I've not been able to fulfill it yet.
It seems to be a flexible shop so I think it is possible to make a reservation through the hotel concierge.

Hi Saito san & all,
Do you know if either Saika or Nishibuchi Hanten in Kyoto take reservations from first time visitors or are they introduction only?

I have heard that it is difficult to make reservations at the Nishibuchi Chinese restaurant unless you do so more than half a year in advance.
Sushi Sakai seems to only accepts reservations up to three months in advance, so please use that as a reference.

@Leo Saito
Thanks for your reply, although I was referring to Saika, the Chinese restaurant near Tofukuji, not Sushi Sakai
