Learned the place from a few YouTube videos. The crab’s weight about 3 Kg total, perfectly delicious and the chef is great. It’s a little pricey but it’s worth paying for. ☺️


Great place if you want to try different parts of crab cooked in slightly different ways.

The crab is fresh and without any weird taste, even when raw or medium. We were not big fans of raw crab, however, only because of its texture and it doesn't really have that crab taste that we are used to.
The grilled ones are really good though, so are the tempura ones.

The price is of course quite high, and depending on the type of crab that you choose it could be as much as 50000+ yen. The experience and the food are spectacular, however.


The most expensive meal in my life! Those craps were extremely huge….can’t finish half of them !! My favorite part is the claws!
