Friday night, I was treated to a fine meal at Ume no Hana: a local chain with about a dozen restaurants in the Tokyo area: Minami Aoyama, Kichijoji, Shin-Yurigaoka, Machida, and elsewhere. This kaiseki tofu restaurant lets you book your own small room for an intimate party.
Listen to the podcast review here: Ume no Hana.
UPDATE: That podcast might only be for those who can resist tweeting burbling noises. It sounded fine over iTunes to the home stereo, but horrible over earphones on my iPod. Sorry. Hara Machida 6-1-11, Lumine Machida 10F. Open: 11am-3 (Lunch); 5-9pm (last dinner order)
