“Tokuchiyama”, which is a 3-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Higashi-Ginza Station, is located on the 1st floor of the building behind the Kabuki-za Theater. It is here that the second generation owner, Keisuke Kimura, showcases his skills.
Owner Kimura is from Hakodate, Hokkaido. He aspired to be a chef and studied at a Japanese restaurant, before entering Tokyo “Ginza Uchiyama”. Junya Kudo, who trained together with Kimura-san, was allowed to open a branch of Uchiyama and became the owner of “Tokuchiyama” in 2011. The restaurant quickly became prosperous and in 2017, he opened “Ginza Kudou”, which was named after him. Because of this, Mr. Kimura, who was also from “Ginza Uchiyama”, was selected as the next owner of the restaurant after “Tokuchiyama” and became the second owner. The traditional Japanese cuisine that has been passed down from “Ginza Uchiyama” will continue to fascinate even more customers with the flavor of the Kudo school.
The signature dish is "Ochazuke” (rice with tea poured over it) which is also a famous dish in “Ginza Uchiyama”. It is a nutritious ochazuke, with red sea bream from Awaji, covered with sesame sauce, and gyokuro tea from Uji poured over it. This is a popular well-loved dish from “Ginza Uchiyama” that they have served for a long time, and can be said to be the representative of the restaurant. The restaurant also serves "Grilled Sesame Tofu", which has an exquisite fluffy texture due to the extensive kneading time during its preparation. It goes well with thick sesame sauce. The course menu consists of various dishes from mukozuke, stewed dishes, grilled dishes and pickles, which you can thoroughly enjoy and experience the true essence of Japanese cuisine. The drinks paired with the dishes are made with sake from famous brewing areas such as "Juyondai" in Yamagata. They also have beer, shochu, and champagne for special occasions such as anniversaries.
The restaurant has a wood-grain counter and tables with black chairs and a calm atmosphere that is typical of a Japanese restaurant. There are only 8 seats at the counter. It is recommended for those who want to enjoy the special experience of being able to see the chef's work in front of them and enjoy conversation. There are 2 tables for 2 -6 people, and if the partition between the tables is removed, it can accommodate up to 12 people sitting together. In addition, there is a complete private room for up to 4 people for those who wish to dine separately.
The delicious flavors of its dishes (that Kimura-san is so proud of) and its perfect location in Ginza mean that this restaurant can be enjoyed during every season for any occasion, from dining or dating with family and friends, to business receptions or providing hospitality for overseas guests.
