If you’ve been wanting to indulge in a classic kaiseki-style feast—but have been put off by the sky-high prices—then head to Totojin (3-2-6 Kanda-Surugadai, Chiyoda-ku; www.totojin.net). This newly opened restaurant is offering a full seasonal course dinner for just ¥3,675. Diners can enjoy a succession of raw, steamed and grilled dishes, plus rice, soup and dessert. The sashimi assortment features seven types of fish, and there’s also grilled sanma, seafood gratin, seiro-style steamed pork, and Kashiwa-meshi (chicken rice). Totojin uses only grade-A koshihikari white rice from Kita-Shinshu, and the lunchtime deal includes unlimited refills.
