Although located in an area that's relatively inconvenient to get to (a good three or four kilometres walk from JR Akabane Station), queues form outside this incredibly popular yakiniku restaurant on a daily basis – even before they open. Once inside, you’ll find a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and a menu with eight kinds of fresh, quality offal – including liver that looks good enough to be eaten reba-sashi (sliced raw liver) style. However, be forewarned: they don’t take bookings and you’ll most likely have to queue for an hour or more to get in.
