He took us to Tsunahachi, a tempura restaurant in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo. Having a counter seat was the best way to see the tempura being prepared, and having Kubota-san as our guide was the best way to enjoy tempura as the Japanese intended. Upon Kubota-san's recommendation, we ordered a la carte rather than choosing a set menu.

It was a wonderful meal that Marc and I probably wouldn't have had on our own. We thank Kubota-san for introducing us to the beauty of tempura!
