The food is delicious, we love every single dish. It was such an amazing end of our trip in Tokyo. The service is awesome and we will definitely come back again :)


Looking for a Yakitori place after taking a walk around the beautiful Yanesen area?
This is the one! And it’s also only a 10minute train ride from Tokyo station!
There’s a reason Michelin has been visiting this place in three consecutive years and pretty sure they will continue to do so for more years to come.
They have pre set course so you don’t have to worry about learning different parts of chickens in Japanese and if you find a favorite you can always ask for more with a la carte.


Foreigner friendly restaurant :)
(There is English and French menu, and the owner can speak English 👍🏻)
With delicious food and kind staffs, we had a great night! Highly recommended!
