Affordable Tokyo Kaiseki

ryatho09 | Sep 10, 201703:04 PM     3

I really want to go to Tokyo and try a decent Kaiseki in February. Unfortunately, the friends I'm going with are opposed to expensive restaurants, so I'm attempting to compromise - please spare the lectures, I am aware that the best Kaiseki is expensive.

Is lunch service the solution? The following options are what I found so far:

1) Akasaka Kien
- Kichi Kaiseki (5,800 yen)
- Mini-Kaiseki Prefixe (4,200 yen)
- 1,700 yen bento option for my friends
(http://www.akasaka-kien.com/introduct...)

2) Kudanshita Juhaku
- Taicha Kaiseki - (3,990 yen)
- Minu-suki Kaiseki - (3,990 yen)
- Irodori Kaiseki (Hon-Kaiseki) - (6,300 yen)
- 1,890 yen Taichai zen or Mibu-suki nabe option for friends

If you have any further suggestions I'm willing to hear them, but Akasaka Kien looked best and had the Michelin rating to back it up. Kaiseki is just the one Japanese cuisines that's so far out of my realm of knowledge that I'd really like some pointers.
