Tsukiji Jisaku is a traditional Japanese restaurant, opened in 1931. The house was originally built in 1899 as a second house for the Iwasaki family, founders of the Mitsubishi conglomerate. The chef, Jisaku Honda, from Hakata Fukuoka, opened the restaurant and it has since been visited and enjoyed by many people of high renown.
You can view the spacious Japanese garden, its beauty changing with each season, with a large pond where beautiful colored carp swim, as you enter the traditional Japanese structure, taking off your shoes as you would do in a Japanese home.
The restaurant is located a 5 minute walk from the Tsukiji market, the heart of the Tokyo kitchen, where fresh seasonal foods selected from all parts of Japan are readily available. In addition to kaiseki-ryori, a traditional multi-course Japanese meal prepared from these fresh materials, tori-no-mizutaki, chicken and vegetables cooked in a special broth, is the specialty of Tsukiji Jisaku, the recipe handed down from Jisaku Honda through the generations.
