The whale meat is sooo good. I went during lunch time and the menu was really limited so I recommend going for dinner. The only food available are whale dishes so don't go if you're a vegan. Decent prices as well. I got a whale...More

My partner and I met our long time friends here for dinner. It is a short walk from the Shibuya station. We all shared the sashimi platter, grilled whale meat, hot pot, and whale sashimi and bacon. The sashimi platter had a bit of everything...More

A childish, romantic whim... A desire, a curiosity. I've eaten every kind of food, the whale was missing... A very japanese-style restaurant, sober and woody, quiet and relaxing, a real island surrounded by the noisy waves of Shibuya, a ghost ship with the legendary "Pequod"...More

Good whale meat. First time. Small place, may miss it amongst all the tall buildings but the owner refused to sell out his restaurant.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
