Ginza Koju is run by chef Toru Okuda together with his wife. The interior is clean and minimal in design, yet the traditional touches endow it with warmth. Ginza Koju's cuisine is shun (旬）, i.e. seasonally based, and Ginza Koju is famous for the freshness of its produce, and the way in which it is prepared, featuring that seasonality both in terms of taste, and in terms of presentation.
Like many such restaurants, and especially with its menu being seasonally based, Ginza Koju's menu is a set menu, the chef determining what dishes are served, according to the season and the produce available.
