Among the antiques stores and kimono shops on Shinmonzen-dori, Tozentei emphasizes to-the-letter traditional Japanese cooking. Meals here, made with only local produce, are old-school enough to please a shogun. Grumpy gray windows frame this intimate hideaway that fits only 14. The ¥3000 lunch specials run much cheaper than dinner.
