Sparta is the oldest Greek restaurant in Japan! In the 1950's, Greek sailor Eriyasu Sukazofu landed on Japanese shores, and has since been turning out sugoi oishi (very yummy), authentic Greek food with ingredients sent over from his homeland. If you want a souvlaki, some moussaka, paidakia, spanikopita or a greek salad with real feta cheese... this is the place for you! With course menus starting at JPY2500, extremely reasonable for any restaurant in the Land of the Rising Sun, as well as many a la carte choices and libations to boot, you might get the itch to break a plate in celebration at the end of the meal. Don't, but do drop by and enjoy some super Greek hospitality the Spartan way! -Stephen Lebovits
