"Tokyo is the most populous metropolitan area in the world. It is also a major destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. When it comes to dining, the abundance of places to eat cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. The scale of eateries come in all sizes, from shops that can only seat a few at the counter, like yatai's (portable food stalls) to huge restaurants where you can enjoy a party with friends. As for the actual cooking, there are chefs that have made it their life's goal to pursue and elevate their skill in certain cuisines and there are other chefs that continue a tradition passed down through generations of family business. This book is a collection of restaurants that I would like to introduce to my close friends. This is a list of places that have personal signifance. Some of the places listed I have been going to since I was a child with my parents. Some of these shops I only discovered recently, through relationships made after opening my own restaurant in Harajuku. All in all, these are the ones that are special to me."
