While a little off the tourist tracks, the Opera City building in Hatsudai (just 1 station on the Keio line from Shinjuku, and a couple of hundreds meters from the Park Hyatt, offers a beautiful view on the town from its top floors (53F and 54F). There are several restaurants there, including Hakkakuan, a restaurant specialised in home-made tofu.

I only tried it for lunch, but was really impressed! For 1500 yen, you get a nice teshoku set (typically different types of tofu, tempura, fish, rice, miso soup and pickles), plus a big bowl of home-made tofu which will be refilled at will; this tofu is to be eaten with dashi soup and some salt.

While I am not really a fan of tofu, I was impressed by the quality of the food served there. This is a place I will be going back...
