As a child, you probably read “The Adventures of Tintin", the series of comics created by the Belgian artist Hergé. Otherwise, you may have watched the recent Tintin movie…
Translated in over 50 languages, the series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. At some point in the story it is described a castle, Le château de Moulinsart, which was inspired by a real-life castle from France, Château de Cheverny from the Loire Valley. The fictive castle from Tintin was also built, not in France but… in Tokyo. Located in Ebisu, this architectural jewel houses one of the best French restaurants, “Chateau Restaurant Joel Robuchon” a Michelin 3-Stars establishment.
