Bars and Restaurants

Long before latte art and aeropresses arrived in Tokyo, there was a thriving culture of kissaten, cozy and smoke-filled coffee shops. Most have disappeared, but l'Ambre (founded 1948) shows no sign of fading away. That's thanks to centenarian owner Ichiro Sekiguchi and his devotion to his premium coffee beans, some of which he ages for decades.

Joël Robuchon is the eponymous restaurant from world-renowned chef Joël Robuchon, who owns numerous successful ventures around the world. Robuchon offers an outstanding take on modern french cuisine. The restaurant offers several set menus, along with an excellent selection of à la carte options. Be sure to save room for the delicious Kyoho grape mochi with fresh almond ice cream, soya milk and honey coulis.

Things to do in Tokyo in September

Vogue magazine holds their annual event 'Fashion's Night Out' in Tokyo in and around the Omotesando/Aoyama/Harajuku area iFestivities kick off with an opening ceremony at Omotesando Hills at 4pm. Entrance is free (although they may block entrance if it gets too crowded – which it will) and there will be an array of beautiful people talking, walking and singing.

Does the prospect of free fish get you excited? If the answer is yes, head down to Meguro Station on the JR Yamanote Line and the Mita and Namboku Subway Lines for the annual Meguro Sanma Festival from 10am on the first Sunday of September. About 6,000 grilled Sanma (pacific saury) will be given away to mark the beginning of the season.

Although it's not one of the major festivals, the Akasaka Hikawa Matsuri is an easily accessible community festival with lots of activities and events. It also features restored 'dashi' which are traditional wheeled floats. One of the floats features a not very traditional but quite impressive hydraulic lift which raises it up to about 5 metres in height.

Festival

Daradara Matsuri

10th September 2018 to 20th September 2018

Owing to the period of which it is held (11-days), as well as its timing in the middle of September—Japan’s wettest month with seemingly continual rains—the festival goes by the name of the “Never-ending Festival” in Japanese.
