Let me talk about a Japanese restaurant/izakaya Gonpach in Nish-Azabu, Roppongi.
Well, I guess many of you may already have heard about this place as it has been quite famous already. The former Prime Minister, Mr. Koizumi took President Bush here, and it was used as a movie-set, which Uma Thurman played the action scenes of “Kill Bill”.
I’ve just been there for the first time and was surprised to see there were more foreigners than local customers. Some of their staff can speak English and the price is reasonable, it would be good place for a traveler. It seems that many business men transferred from overseas frequent here.
You can enjoy a good dinner of a la carte including yakitori, sashimi or donburi together with some sake, and it would only cost about 5,000 yen (about $50 US. ) per person.
To me as a Japanese person, the caricatured Japanese-style interior was very interesting!
It is about 10 min. walk from Roppongi subway station, located at the Nish-Azabu intersection.
