Sembikiya

2-1-2 Nihonbashi Muromachi
Tokyo , Japan http://www.sembikiya.co.jp/en/shop.php
81 (3) 3421-1630

In 1834, a samurai made his claim to fame with his fruit and vegetables shop, introducing the then-isolated Japan to imported produce. More than 150 years later, the fruit parlor and its reputation are still intact. Once a week, the restaurant at the flagship store hosts an all-you-can-eat fruit extravaganza (seatings are limited to two hours). The selection changes seasonally, but expect more than 20 varieties of premium fruit—all impeccable specimens—which could include pineapples, kiwi, durian, and mangoes, some locally grown, like the Miyazaki mango from the mountainous southern island of Kyushu.
Price: $40 per person.
Save Room for: Hokkaido's famous Yubari muskmelon—sold separately, one would cost you $160.
