Lunch is only 2,500 yen, and the customer service and cuisine are amazing!
There are 2 tiers for the small weight, and 3 tiers for the medium weight, so I think it's plenty of volume!


It is used during lunch time. Lunch is only a Japanese Tamatebako lunch, and this time I ordered it with a small pot of soft-shelled turtle. All of the soft-shelled turtles in the small pot were edible except for the bones, the flesh was light and soft, and the skin was gelatinous and jiggley, and the soup with lots of green onions warmed me up and was delicious. When you unfold the main three-tiered dish, you can enjoy each of the colorful dishes with your eyes and mouth. For the rice, you can enjoy freshly cooked rice cooked in a clay pot. All of these items are sure to be one of a kind. I think you will be able to spend your lunch time very satisfied. I think the owner's attentive behavior is wonderful. It's close to Keihan Chushojima Station, so we recommend making a reservation. It was delicious☆


I finally made a reservation! Tamatebako is the best! The host's care is also great! Everything is delicious and has a gentle taste! It also came with Iburigakko, which you can only eat now, and it was my first time to have such delicious Iburigakko! We highly recommend the one that comes with a small bowl of soft-shelled turtle!
