A famous izakaya in the heart of Shinjuku with a decades long history.

The focus here is on yakiton: Grilled skewers of pork meat and organs. You can either order different menus or go with a single item as well. We started with a selection of yakiton, which contained their signature pork liver skewer among others. On top, we ordered some grilled wagyu and vegetable dishes. Drink wise, sake, and beer are the way to go. Recommended!


Very popular yakiton (grilled pork and chicken) restaurant in Shinjuku. You may need to reserve in advance.


A business partner took place farewell party for me in here.
One of the most famous Yakitori restaurant in Shinjuku area.
Generally it`s quite difficult to book this restaurant, it might be better that booking at least one week before.

The atmosphere is lively. Waiters / Waitress have hospitality.
Taste is quite good of course.
Unfortunately, it looks that there is no English menu and no one can speak English. Foreigners should visit here with Japanese friends.

It's been a long time since I last saw Torishige. Depending on the timing, the food may be slow to come out, and to be honest, it's not that warm even in the winter due to the air conditioning, but I still go there because it's simply delicious. Parent and child regularly...


Translated from Japanese:

This is a year-end visit. I chose the general's recommended course for 8,500 yen and the usual course. In conclusion, I realized that I could fully enjoy this restaurant's cuisine with just one course for 8,500 yen. From appetizers to skewers, 2 types of meat sashimi, beef steak...
