Inside Aoi Denshin Yamada

The owner, Yukihiro Yamada, was born in Kyoto. After graduating from junior high school, his love of cooking led him to the world of Japanese cuisine, which he was familiar with. He honed his skills at famous restaurants in Kyoto and Ginza for about 33 years before setting up his own restaurant this spring.

I have been following a master with a playful mind for about 20 years, so I have adopted such a style myself. In summer, he uses ayu (sweetfish) and salt to create a scene of ayu fish moving upstream, and grasshoppers made of shuro leaves are used to create grasshoppers. Lunch from 5,000 yen, dinner from 15,000 yen.
