This is one of the places I always stop by when visiting Tokyo. They only serve chanko nabe which in fact are fresh ingredients put into a bowl, cooked very slowly. Its pretty healthy and tasty. It is also one of the more expensiver foods in Tokyo (but mainly because I always drink sake with this dish).
The restaurant is a back alley type one but is divided into two seperate buildings oposing each other. There is a reception desk in one of the buildings and the person at the desk will help you further. Last time (march 2016) I noticed they had a menu translated into english.
The athmosphere is great (radio coverage of sumo matches from a forgotten era) and the staff is polite. At the reception they also have nice stuff to buy (bought a sake set there). Pretty decent restaurant to build up some good memories.
