As we step through the door, we’re struck by the soaring ceilings in this former private home. Above us, the chefs gaze out over the room from their elevated kitchen with its large hanging sake barrels. We find ourselves in Japan, in one of those crowded multi-generational streets where tradition rubs shoulders with modernity. Old, recycled and exotic wood features large and adds a touch of warmth and authenticity to this space, revolving around the central bar at its epicentre. Kampai!
