Named for the eponymous moat outside its windows, Wadakura pays tribute to Japan’s cuisine in four distinct areas – tempura at Tatsumi, teppanyaki at GO, sushi at Sushi Kanesaka and kaiseki in its main dining room.

Meticulously designed, the signature restaurant’s interiors are as inspired as its menus, from the textured walls elegantly crafted by master plasterer Naoki Kusumi to the intricate naguri-style woodwork on the floors of the beautifully appointed tatami-style private dining areas.

Please refer to the separate listings for Tatsumi, GO and Sushi Kanesaka for details on Wadakura’s individual outlets.

*Please refrain from casual clothing such as beach sandals and men’s sleeveless shirts. Guests in casual attire may be asked to refrain from entering the restaurant.
