Time Out says
This famous sukiyaki (Japanese-style hot pot) restaurant has been in business since 1880. It has been frequented by many great writers and featured in books by novelists such as Kafu Nagai and Bunroku Shishi. Back in the day, sukiyaki was conventionally made with miso, but the restaurant has been cooking their version with a soy-based sauce known as warishita since day one, and it has become their signature dish.
Dinner at Sukiyaki Imaasa is an elaborate affair if you opt for the matsu set meal (¥14,256), which comes with beautifully marbled wagyu beef. The fifth-generation owner, a qualified sommelier, will be on hand to recommend a wine-pairing for your hotpot. Alternatively, the lunch set (¥2,700) comes with an appetiser, rice and dessert.
