Since I saw some comments based on misunderstanding, I would like to point out one basic fact about Mizutani: We cannot use credit cards at this restaurant. (It is written in several blogs and tweets: for example https://twitter.com/posit1vegamma/status/592625549501018112)

I know it would be helpful if they accept credit cards (so they might charge deposit) or have several options for booking, for example online booking. However, considering its size (it only has 10 seats) and its staffs (they are not digital natives), it is not hard to imagine they simply cannot afford to introduce such system and take time to learn how to use it.

Of course, as a Japanese, I feel sorry for that Chinese guy, and I think Mizutani should do their best to welcome foreign customers, as a restaurant awarded Michelin stars. But at the same time, I can understand Mizutani had to make ends meet (what if four out of ten seats are cancelled without deposit) and I want all of you who are reading my comment to understand the difficult situation such small and not internationalized restaurants are facing.
