Fodor's Review

Billing itself as "one of the most important historical restaurants of Japan," this quiet hilltop retreat is Nagasaki's most prestigious dining room. Dishes are served as kaiseki (multicourse meals) or shippoku (an elaborate course blending Asian and European elements). A weekday lunchtime bento box costs ¥5,400; full dinners start at about ¥14,250 and head skyward. The interior wooden beams date to 1618. Meiji Restoration leader Ryoma Sakamoto once took a chunk out of a wooden pillar with his sword during a brawl; you can still see the gashes in the main dining room. The area around Kagetsu has historically been home to many geisha, and to this day they can be booked to perform during your meal (¥27,000 per geisha for three hours). With notice ahead of your visit, Kagetsu can provide special meals including vegetarian, nut-free, and halal.
