The neighborhood is home to many department stores. When I don't have an eating itinerary planned out beforehand, I usually eat at the dining areas of department stores; the food is usually above standard, especially if you're looking for local cuisine.
I frequent the dining area at Odakyu the most. My favorite restaurant there serves traditional seafood gohan (rice) sets. Funny thing is, I've never ever seen a young person in this restaurant. The clientele, at least whenever I've been there, are of the older generation. The waitresses are in kimonos and the atmosphere is rather subdued in a "proper" sort of way, but I've never felt uncomfortable.
The staff are very kind and patient. When I stumble over words while ordering they help me out without making me feel inadequate.
The food is for the tofu-liking palate; i.e. those who don't need deep and heavy seasoning on their food. Very light and subtle.
I had the salmon, ikura (salmon roe) and kani (crab) gohan set this time. The rice comes in a wooden steamer which you move to the porcelain rice bowl with the large wooden spoon. I move the rice little by little so the rice can remain warm in its original container.
