Sushi or kaiseki is probably what comes to mind when you think of fine dining in Japan, but high-end tempura is just as refined. At this Ginza temple to all things fried to wispy perfection, each piece is delicately battered and fried, and served individually in succession. Even President Obama couldn't get a reservation, so be sure to book well in advance.
