Kisoji Uehommachi

This was a Shabu Shabu place that was recommended by our hotel. We had to make a reservation up front since they did not allow walk-ins. I imagine this had something to do with table availabilty and just having enough food on hand to serve everyone.

We spoke almost no useful Japanese but the staff was helpful and we just relied on our ability to point at the menu and see what it must be like to be a foreigner in another country as we so often see in the US.

It was not cheap, but the food was amazing. The staff gave us a little demo of what to do, although my wife had some experience with how to cook the food. Oh, and the entire staff wore Kimonos which was a nice touch to the experience.
