High-end Tempura in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka

One of my food mantras is "anything fried is good", so it only follows that I should love tempura. I'm curious about people's experiences with the following high-end tempura places:

In Tokyo:
Tempura Mikawa
Tempura Kondo
Asagi

In Kyoto:
Ten-you
Tempura Yoshikawa
Tempura Ozawa
Tempura Endo (which I think is more mid-range than high-end, but I'll include it, anyway)

In Osaka:
Ippoh

Does anyone have comments or experiences to share about any of the above, or any other high-end places that I could add to my list? I don't go to Tokyo very often, but I'm close enough to Kyoto and Osaka to be able to make the rounds. I've been to Ten-you in Kyoto, but none of the others. I am looking primarly at high-end places, but very good mid-range restaurants are fine, too (I've been to Tsunahachi in Tokyo, for example, I would place it in the good mid-range category).
