Hantei

Much of Hantei's claim to fame rests on the wonderful old building in which it is housed. Quite simply, it's a classic -- an immaculately preserved three-storied, turn-of-the-last-century town house, all jutting wooden beams and balconies. Its proud frontage is remarkable, even for the back streets of Nezu, where the echoes of prewar shitamachi still resonate as in few other areas of the metropolis.
