Kenjiroo Okada/岡田憲次郎さん is quite a personage! At a very young 50 (he barely looks 40!) with a strong body built with plenty of biking, he finds somehow the way to open his restaurant day and night non stop seven days a week!
Try and catch a seat on the terrace in the warmer seasons!

Shizuoka oranges white Sangria!

Located in a very quiet back street of Ebisu, it makes use of lot of of vegetables from Shizuoka Prefecture and Niigata Prefecture and also fruit from Shizuoka Prefecture delivered directly from the producers thanks to M2 labo Inc.’s network in Shizuoka Prefecture!
