Ohmatsuya

Ohmatsuya serves the cuisine (and sake) of far-off Yamagata Prefecture -- but this is kyodo ryori refracted through a prism of urbane sophistication. It is quite feasible to order in ippin (a la carte) mode. But the English-language menu (quite understandably) steers those unfamiliar with the genre toward the set courses. There are three levels: the "Snow" course (7,000 yen); "Moon" (8,000 yen); and "Flower" (9,500 yen). The difference is not so much the number or volume of dishes, but the quality of the ingredients.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
