Hanagi

Serving traditional fare from Kyushu, Japan's southernmost major island, Hanagi is an elegant restaurant and an excellent place to experience the diversity of Japanese food. Although you can order a la carte, your best way choice is one of the set courses available. These start at JPY4,800 and include sashimi, grilled fish and seafood, pickled and fresh vegetables, and the famous Kyushu basashi--thin slices of raw horse meat, which is eaten with grated ginger and soy sauce.
