Kogetsu deserves to be respected for its quality, and Chef Taketoshi Minami’s culinary prowess reflects his uncanny devotion to his art. The restaurant is definitely a place where guests will want to revisit, be it great food or just simply to hide away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure whether I’d enjoy the sunrise tour in the first place – I dreaded the idea of hauling myself out of bed in the wee hours, specifically at 2:00 a.m., just to catch the first light of the day.
