Tokyo (AFP) - A Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant specialising in a refined -- and pricey -- traditional cuisine has been ordered to temporarily close after customers came down with food poisoning, an official said Wednesday.

A total of 14 customers suffered from stomach pain and diarrhoea after eating sea urchin, squid and other seafoods at the Kita Kamakura Saryo Gentoan southwest of Tokyo, a local government official said.
