An elegant interior features autumnal colours leading into darker shades on the wooden tables. The circular restaurant has ensured the majority of diners receive a window seat - which would be perfect given the panoramic views. Despite the prospect of viewing Mt Fuji on a clear day, the thousands of lights visible at night provide a whole new experience for diners.
