Various Japanese cuisine under one roof in Kayabacho

Fujiro (不二楼) is a mid-range izakaya in Kayabacho with a twist. The unique wooden exterior belies a multi-floor interior dedicated to different palates.

Downstairs is exclusively aimed at yakitori, the second floor serves teppanyaki and tempura, third floor is a dedicated sushi bar, whilst the fourth floor is a members-only bar lounge.

The brainchild of Wakyo Holdings, which runs almost 30 eateries across Japan, Fujiro's name reveals the thinking behind this brand – just like Mount 'Fuji' (富士), there isn't another one quite like it (不二).

Floor breakdown

Of course, guests are invited to move between floors and would be recommended to do so, with each one heralding a different menu and experience:

  1. Grilled yakitori – Serving brand chicken from across Japan and a special tare sauce with 30 years history, alongside a general menu common to all floors including seasonal vegetables, sashimi, and squid shiokara (fermented guts)
  2. Teppanyaki & Tempura – As well as organic Nukazuke (fermented vegetables in rice bran), a range of ingredients grilled to perfection as well as a vegetarian menu aimed at foreign customers.
  3. Sushi & Nihonshoku – A combination of Edomae sushi, Hakatamae sushi and cured sushi, prepared dexterously by Daisuke Fujinaga (owner of a famous Nishi-Azabu sushi shop) – focus being on the cured sushi with its extra flavour and refined texture. Tables as well as a reservation-only counter are available, with course options.
  4. Members Bar Lounge – A place to enjoy cigars, gin and Nihonshu.

Getting there

Fujiro is a 1 minute walk west of Kayabacho station on the Hibiya and Tozai Line – take Exit 2.
