This restaurant is specialized for Crabs. Prices is a bit higher than the others but the quality and taste is very good. All tables are organized to seat without shoes. So, you just take of your shoes and seat to the table. If you want to leave your table, you may either take your shoes or use public sleepers. There are sushi sets or tempura sets in the menu. A wide range of dishes are provided. Waiters are dressed in kimonos. So it is a very good place to feel real Japanese restaurant in the very heart of Osaka.

The grilled King crab which is grilled by yourself is a must try if you are around this area. We also have the boiled snow crab, chawan mushi and warm crab sake which was sweet.

Reservations can only be make on the day itself. The restaurant opens at 11.30 am. Once you have make a reservation, you are given a piece of paper with the time to come back if the restaurant is full.

Highly recommended if you are a crab lover.
No problem if you are non Japanese as there's an English menu and the staffs speaks English too.

Simply choose a set meal to try different kind of cooking. They are all delicious.
The services is good too. Most of the staff can speak a little English for easy communication.
If you love crab, worth to try a set meal.
