Definitely recommended for those who love yakitori

In comparison with b_lizard76, the previous reviewer, we were lucky and we easily found the restaurant, coming from Ikebukuro station of the Yamanote line and then following the plan of our guidebook. Although I normally do not like the cartilage of chicken, I ate yakitori with taste, as my whole... read more

This place is really accessible to tourists, it provides English menus and is really reasonable for prices with 5 yakitori pieces costing around 400 to 500 yen each depending on what you order. Me and my husband spent around £30 on average for a really good meal. The atmosphere in the restaurant is great too, as it is a common... More

I have visited this restaurant many times on trip to Japan, most recently last week at the end of my honeymoon. Every visit has been excellent, with no issues regarding the quality of food or service. If you do not speak Japanese, the staff will provide you with an English menu. Akiyoshi offer a wide range of yakitori options, including... More

I have been in this place three times in one week. It is simply awesome! Fun and genuine ambiance plus good food at an honest price. Make sure you try the Pitoro and enjoy your time there if you are around Ikebukuro!

I came here based on a review in a guidebook. Unfortunately, it's hard to find! I couldn't find a good map of the area and I stopped to ask for directions from some ladies in a department store. They were amazed I knew of it and one of them loves to go there too :-) They gave me some directions... More

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
