Still in Tokyo but a bit far from the hustle and bustle of the city. A long street full of okonokiyaki and monjayaki restaurants left and right. Something to try with friends and family. To choose a good place, look for people patiently queuing outside waiting for their turn to dine in.

We come to this street,because we were going to the Owl Cafe (Fukuro no mise), which its 2 blocks down. We did the appointment in the cafe by 8:00 pm,but in the mean time, we were exploring the neighborhood,and we were really surprised when we discovered this street. We then realize it was a street of almost all little restaurants... More

Street with lots of small restaurants (or bistros) where you can try okonomiyaki, monjayaki and different kinds of dishes prepared on the grill at your table. All foodies will love it!

Monja is one of traditional Japanese food. it tastes very good! but, actually it's too hard to explain. you should make sure by yourself how good it is. however I think you'll get addicted.

There's nothing much to do or see in Tsukishima except eat monja! Monja street is about 2-3 blocks made up of mostly monja restaurants. There were so many monja restaurants we couldn't decide which one to dine. A note, you'd end up smelling of monja by the time you step out of a monja restaurant

Initially, no one wanted to visit Tsukishima (we'd just been to Tsukiji market and everyone wanted a break since we went so early), but i had heard of something called Monjayaki and really wanted to try it (and i had to have it at the place it is famous for). So with much grumbling, we jumped on the subway and,... More

Other than many okonomiyaki eateries that flanked nishinaka dori, I didn't see anything else that interested me here. But I must say the cook it yourself "cabbage pancake" was rather tasty. Opt for a restaurant with buffet if you think u can stomach more than one portion.

Okonomiyaki is a kind of savory crepe-like that you prepare by yourself combining the ingredients that you like the most and cooking the dough on a small teppayaky (iron griddle). Each client is provided with the ingredient and the griddle. It is a very funny experience in which you will be assistend by some gentle Japanese clients. This specialty is... More

A very busy street with a lot of everything going around. Can easily spend a lot of time sitting in the corner sipping tea while watching busy people rush by

Tsukishima is the place to go if you want to have monjayaki, the Tokyo version of the more popular okonomiyaki from Osaka or Hiroshima. There are some monjayaki restaurants scattered around Tokyo but not many specialise in them like those in tsukishima. There are more than 50 shops selling monjayaki on the street just a few steps from Tsukishima station.... More
