Another return visit in Shinjuku. It is located right beside Kabuki-cho. Could not resist the urge for their barbecued Wagyu so went in for Supper on the way back to our hotel. Their free flow of shredded cabbage was still perfect with their sesame dressing. The wagyu was still amazing and tasty as before. Will visit again when I'm back... More

I love yakiniku and this place did not disappoint. If you can make a reservation, that would be ideal, even if it's for the same day. But the wait wasn't too bad.

I can't say enough about this place. It's a hidden gem with fantastic food and welcoming service. Even though I am quite open to trying new things and will eat pretty much anything, this is the perfect place for those who aren't quite as adventurous too. The main reason being you can cook the food to your liking. The reason... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
