First founded in 1889, this retro restaurant serves tempura over rice in three types, all with different toppings: the choices are I (¥1,500), Ro (¥2,000), and Ha (¥2,500). On your first visit, we recommend the Ro or Ha, which include eel and toppings like two jumbo prawns, vegetables and kakiage, cooked with a mixture of sardines, prawns and shellfish. The batter is crispy but fluffy, and the sauce offers a good balance of sweet and salty. Long queues are to be expected during the weekends, so going early on a weekday is recommended.
