Review: We really wanted to go to a vegetarian restaurant featuring traditional (veg'n style!) Japanese cuisine here, and this was just that. A buffet full of many great options. We thought it was easy to find, although in the main directions it says to go 2-3 blocks on the last street -- it is NOT that far. Maybe a block, just watch for a sign and the buddha in the courtyard. The food was all excellent with a great variety of dishes - miso soup, hot dishes, cold dishes, rices, appetizers, etc. Good mix of fake meats and other veggies etc. Best to go at a peak hour when other people will be there, as they make more dishes when more people are there. The food otherwise sits out and gets cold (they are not on heated dishes) - but not a huge deal, as once we came in (and we were the only ones at first, til several more people came after), they immediately started making more hot dishes for just us too. We had more than enough to eat. They give you a 90 minute time limit, which we found amusing -- but certainly more than enough time to have more than an adequate amount of wonderful food! The price (2000 yen for dinner) was more than we're used to paying, but probably fair for the Tokyo area and a buffet. We would go back if we're back in Tokyo!
