The decor is elegant and understated, and the 42nd-floor views of Tokyo Bay and Ginza are impressive, but we keep coming back to Washoku En for the excellent food. The kitchen turns out creative, seasonal Japanese cuisine, tending towards simply prepared dishes that showcase high-quality ingredients. There's a decent sake list, split between well-known breweries and more unusual labels, and you'll find good selections of wine and shochu as well.

The rather large space is divided up into numerous separate dining areas, ranging from small tables looking out over Tokyo Bay to comfortable counter seating facing the skyscrapers of Shiodome. A series of larger rooms facing Ginza is suitable for parties of anywhere from eight to fifty people. As a pleasant bonus, prices here are on par with ordinary Tokyo izakayas. Budget around Y4000-6000 for ample food and drink at dinnertime.
