Fodor's Review

Ryoma no Sora Bettei Tokyoites love unique dining experiences and are also fascinated by their own history—they can revel in both in this eatery which is a tribute to Ryoma Sakamoto, a hero who helped overthrow the feudal Tokugawa Shogunate in the 1860s. When you enter from the ultramodern streets of Shinjuku, slide off your shoes, stash them in a wooden locker, and walk by a statute of the sword-wielding Sakamoto as you step into the Japan of the past. You can sit in

the main dining hall, which resembles a bustling historic inn, or you can phone ahead to reserve a private tatami-mat dining room. The cuisine also harkens back to the traditional rural cooking, popular before Japan opened up to the West. The house specialty is seiro-mushi, a bamboo box filled with carefully arranged seafood, poultry, or meat, steamed over a pot, served piping hot, and quickly shared with everyone at the table.
