La Sora Seed Restaurant in Tokyo

A romantic dinner for two overlooking Skytree Tower

By Jessica A Paje    - 3 min read

Romantic. Iconic. Fresh & delicious. The words that immediately come to mind when I think of this fine dining establishment. Located on the 31st floor of the newest commercial complex in Tokyo called Tokyo Solamachi, La Sora Seed (A Food Relation Restaurant) commands magnificent views of the World’s Tallest Tower, Tokyo Skytree Tower, the Sumida River, and the city that surrounds Sky Town.

Our La Sora Seed dinner reservation was made for 6:30pm, but we decided to make our way up the elevator 30 minutes prior since a line started to form. To our surprise, others had the same idea since there’s an open section to relax and enjoy the views without having a dinner reservation. It was definitely a hot spot for viewing the Sumida River Fireworks Festival. Or, to simply share some quiet time in a somewhat hidden, but prime location.

La Sora Seed restaurant embodies natural and crisp through the woodwork design along the entrance and the selection of furniture pieces dubbed as the “Hiroshima” collection by Maruni Wood Industry of Japan. We were seated at a beautifully set oval table for two, which was pressed up against the floor-to-ceiling glass window. The table setting was elegant and the servers were sophisticated. They really made us feel special on our 17th Wedding Anniversary, especially when they were gracious enough to take many pictures of us enjoying our dining experience.

La Sora Seed is an Italian restaurant that offers lunch and dinner with a very simplistic menu selection by chef Masayuki Okuda. When making an online reservation you must decide on one of three sets for Lunch or two sets for Dinner and note your preference in the comments box. There’s a good reason for this: each dish is prepared with only farm fresh ingredients. We decided on the “Sora” menu that was priced at 7,500 yen per person. It was a special occasion, so we didn’t mind spending a little more on a meal that was exquisitely prepared with so much attention to detail and served at a table with a spectacular view. The nine-course menu had us tickled with excitement; each bite offered incredible flavors and we always looked forward to the next dish. A few of my favorites were the sweet corn soup, “Ayu” and eggplant, and the stewed chicken spaghetti with burdock.

To access La Sora Seed, take the train to Oshiage Station. Upon arrival, head towards Oshiage Station Square and take the elevators up to the 1st floor to Tokyo Solamachi. Here you will find another set of elevators to Skytree View Dining on 30F & 31F. I would recommend getting to Sky Town early in order to discover other shops within the Square and at Tokyo Solamachi. Or, just to snap another shot of Tokyo Skytree from the heel up. You won’t regret it!

Originally from San Diego, California, I lived in Japan for 4-1/2 years and now I am currently based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. In December 2010, I arrived in Yokosuka with a new outlook on my future. Mainly, to refocus on family and let my curiosities take us to places we've only dreamt of. Along the way, we'd hopefully develop new friendships and simply collect memories to last a lifetime. Then, there was the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. I will never forget that experience and the devastating effects it had on the entire country. I asked the community, "What can I do to help?" Collecting, sorting, and packing donations, was the least I could do. I also ended up going back to California for one month, raised a small monetary donation for Red Cross, and secured a few phone interviews to help spread the word on how others from the United States could assist. I was determined to show my family, friends, and folks across the world that it would be okay to return to Japan. After all, I wanted them to know that all of the little things that make up this beautiful country still existed. What better way than to use a platform such as JapanTravel.com to share photos and stories full of life, history, and culture. It is a pleasure to say I have contributed more than 150 articles to a database that now collectively holds more than 15,000! This journey has not only allowed me to realize my initial goals, but I'd like to think that it has somehow played a role in sparking an interest locally and across the globe for others to experience all that is published here and more. I invite you to also share your wonderful stories, offer comments, and ask questions right here on Japan Airlines. Feel free to contact me at jessica.paje@japantravel.com. Safe travels! ٩( ๑╹ ꇴ╹)۶
