At Ginza Ibuki, chef Sadahisa Yoshizawa focuses on seafood from Japan's Kochi prefecture, like blackthroat fish that he butterflies, dries overnight and then grills.

Foodies make pilgrimages to Masayuki Okuda's Italian-influenced restaurant in the northern prefecture of Yamagata; now he shows off the area's ingredients, like Yonezawa wagyu, at Yamagata San-Dan-Delo.
