    Chef Ryuji Takemura trained at renowned establishments such as "Funtokuyama" before opening "Wakei" in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture.
     In 2018, the restaurant relocated to Nishi-Azabu in Tokyo and earned 2 Michelin stars in the "Michelin Guide Hiroshima/Ehime 2018 Special Edition.
    " It continues to receive high praise and was awarded 1 Michelin star in the "Michelin Guide Tokyo 2021/2022.
    "The restaurant offers an omakase course, with the dishes varying depending on the season.
     For instance, you can enjoy dishes like lotus root and abalone, a soup with poultry and mochi rice, and straw-grilled flounder and bonito.
     Desserts such as cheesecake and traditional Japanese sweets are also available.
    "Azabu Wakei" provides a peaceful atmosphere, and sitting at the counter allows you to be in close proximity to the chef, who will explain each dish and share interesting stories.
     The overall seasoning tends to be on the stronger side, but the portion sizes are just right, providing a satisfying dining experience.
    While it may not be a casual dining option due to the price range, "Azabu Wakei" is the perfect place for those who want to indulge in a luxurious meal.
     I recommend visiting at least once.
