Gohanya ISSHIN


~  Japanese Restaurant in Daikanyama

As the name of the restaurant suggests, “Gohanya” means “rice restaurant” and offers great quality of rice.

The rice is cooked by “hagama” which is a broad-brimmed cooking pot for rice and is cooked on a cooking stove.  Hagama is set in the center of the restaurant and the original hagama perfectly fits into the elegant atmosphere.

The rice served in a wooden container (ohitsu) is specially blended to match the season.

 At lunch time, they offer reasonable plates ranging from ¥1,000 – 2,000.

All plates come with the rice in ohitsu and you can choose meals from fish, pork, chicken, tempura, sashimi and so on… .

With this quality and the location, I would say this is a very reasonable and must-go restaurant.

When I left the shop around 13:30, there was still a long queue in front of the entrance. The restaurant does not accept reservation at lunch time, so we have to wait in a queue but I think it’s worth waiting.

This is located in a charming town Daikanyama so taking a stroll around Daikanayama area and having lunch at Gohanya Isshin is a perfect course for a lazy day.
