Akasaka: Restaurants and Geishas

The Akasaka district, which is in the vicinity of the hotel, flourished in former times as Tokyo’s restaurant zone. It was home to exclusive restaurants, called ryotei, that were intimately connected with the region’s business and political sectors, providing places to be used for politicians to talk in private or for high-class business entertainment. The ryotei restaurants have offered Japanese cuisine in settings that exemplified Japanese culture in its various forms — food and tableware, sukiya-style architecture, Japanese gardens, works of fine art, furniture, geishas, traditional music, and other aspects of orthodox Japanese culture in general. With such their formality and pride, they have remained dedicated to their policies that only private rooms are provided and “no first-time customers are welcomed” while having also come to be established as places of celebratory entertainment and traditional dance performances that were continuously provided by geishas. Four ryotei restaurants are still in business in Akasaka today, including Asadaya. Joining forces with the Akasaka geisha district, this aspect of Japanese culture has been introduced to the wider world. We invite you to take the opportunity to enjoy the authentic Japanese cuisine and remarkable hospitality of these high-status, dignified establishments.
