Travelled all the way to try the tonkatsu. It was pretty average, felt the fats was too much for my liking. First floor was quite lively (we sat on second floor which was quiet). We arrived early for dinner around 5pm so there was no...More

My expectations were high. After all this is a restaurant that opened in 1939. It remains extremely popular. They only serve tonkatsu, fatty or lean. Soup, salad and rice are served along with your order. I did find the meat bland. It’s a good thing...More

This place has two things only: classic vibe and Japanese fried cutlets that have been perfected over the years. Highly recommended if you’re staying near the Westin hotel or near the Meguro stop.

Very simple and well organized restaurant. Tonkatsu (pork cutlet) is really tasty. There is a long queue, but do not worry, they are well organized and fast. the cutlet filet is around 1900 YEN (around 15 Euro) drink excluded

Located in a quiet street of Meguro, once you open the door of this little restaurant you will find a really crowd place. It is amazing that, in a place so full of people, everything is so under control. The cooks are so focus on...More

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
