Tokyo Dining at Uchiyama – うち山


Yesterday was my 60th birthday, and we my wife and myself had a celbration dine-out. I chose Uchiyama in Ginza as it is one of the best and most relaxing restaurants for me. I usually go there to have red snapper “ochazuke” lunch. In front of the counter seats is sand wall and dark-red laquer shelf to structure the modern and simple Japanese interior space, and we can see the chefs slicing some fish for preparation across the counter, but the real kitchen is hidden behind the wall. Here I can enjoy the authentic Kansai-quality even in Tokyo, and it is essential. After a pleasing dinner like this, I need nothing but hotsprings, so there we go to Kusatsu next morning!
