This used to be genuine Japan!

Unfortunately, the ownership of tonkichi has changed fairly recently. Prices have gone up quite a bit, the size of the dishes went down. Basically, you can still order one basic dish only, but service is rather slow and you´d have to be prepared to wait for half an hour.

Compared to other eateries in the area it´s too pricey now. What a pity!!!
