Shimbashi is an actual district in Tokyo where the first train rail was built in Japan in 1872. It’s also famous for Izakaya-style bars and restaurants for businessmen for after work relaxation and an opportunity to unwind after a busy day.
Japan’s traditional culture is often described as a seasonal culture, for so much revolves around the changing of the seasons, and the “sense” of season is highly valued. As the seasons change, so will the menu offerings, with a premium placed upon freshness and flavor to deliver the best of ingredients for the “shun” or, in English, now-in-season.
Our restaurant theme is based on the Izakaya, or Japanese “pub” – a unique and vital cornerstone of Japanese food culture.
