Metropolis has the essentials for year-end dining and entertainment in Tokyo. From show clubs and bars to casual dining, our Christmas Dining Special has you covered.
At Osteria Cicchetti, guests can enjoy the Venetian style of an Italian restaurant in Ginza, sipping a wide selection of wines at the cozy bar area and tasting various dishes from the à la carte menu of the finest Italian seafood. The speciality bluefin tuna (sold at market price) comes from the most famous trader in Japan, Yamako, at the Toyosu Fish Market, and the quality of all the seafood is so high it’s worthy of the best sushi toppings. For the December party season, the restaurant can also accommodate up to 35 guests.
