You can also eat the same food in Tokyo.
It is located on the 6F of a shopping mall Tokyo Solamachi.
However, there is no traditional residence, and their food prices are more expensive than the restaurant in Kagawa Prefecture.
Tokyo Solamachi - It offers more than 300 stores, and is a commercial complex full of variety that visitors can enjoy, whether for shopping, sightseeing, or daily errands.
Together with Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Solamachi is a commercial facility that links Japan with the world.
