In Tokyo you can find the restaurant where they filmed the fight scene between Lucy Liu and Uma Thurman in Kill Bill. Outside looks good, but as soon as you go in you can see the place that you saw in the film. It had a bar downstairs where you can watch the chefs cook from directly in front. But the best place is at the top where you can enjoy, in addition to food, a magnificent panoramic view of the whole place. The waiters shout all at once when someone asks for a special dish or when someone leaves. The atmosphere is second to none, but the prices are a tad more expensive than a traditional izakaya.
