This is a shojin ryori (vegan temple food) restaurant but not the best example, the food is fine but a little lacklustre and not very filling and not worth making much of a journey for.

Some antenna shops are dedicated to one area. This one had food and drink from a few, it seemed. Maybe because it's owned by JR. There were plenty of samples to be had including sake. I found and purchased sencha from a couple of different...More

I'd heard that this had artisan and gourmet foods from around Japan. The selection was not as wide as I'd hoped for, although it was still good to browse. If you're going to Akihabara, it's near the station so easy enough to pop in. I...More

I want to review the restaurant attached to Chabara, called Dining Tokushima. They do modern twists on Japanese classics. We got the oyagodon, or egg in rice, topped with yuzumiso chicken and foie gras. Unbelievably tasty, and well priced around ten bucks. Check it out!

Really more of a relatively higher price farmer coop. Lot's of samples to try and certainly if you'd like to try different produce, less fresh and more packaged and bottled, then this makes for a very nice stop whilst in Akiharbira. A little disappointed by...More
