Hibiya is a neighborhood in Tokyo known for its cinemas and theaters. In March of 2018, Tokyo Midtown Hibiya opened and I visited a Shanghaiese restaurant called Raika in this building. There are also Raika branches in Tokyo's Shinjuku Gyoen and Aoyama. All three locations are so popular that it's hard to get in without a reservation.

In business for over 120 years, “Tsukiji Miyagawa Honten” is famous for its historic unagi (eel). This is the main location for the “Miyagawa” restaurants scattered across Japan. This is where I decided to enjoy a somewhat luxurious unagi lunch.
“Zenshutoku” is a Chinese restaurant that serves up authentic Peking duck. Their Peking duck is carefully prepared in the same process, made up of over 50 steps, as that at the famous restaurant “Quanjude.” Zenshutoku’s Ginza location closed over 3 years ago due to a fire, but it was finally able to reopen in November of 2018. I decided to stop by for lunch right away.
“Tomato no Sato Shinanoji” in Osaka is an unusual tomato ramen specialty restaurant.
The prices are a bit high, but the ingredients used are of great quality thanks to the craftsman-spirited owner. Other restaurants sell tomato ramen as well, but this restaurant is known as the pioneer of the dish and has many fans.
I’ve visited here before, but I remembered how much I loved the taste and came back!
