How can you go wrong with the finest, thin sliced marbled beef and a wealth of vegetables and herbs that create the finishing stock used to cooked your final bowl of noodles? At this place, it is impossible to find fault with the presentation, the quality of the ingredients, and the impeccable service.

No cheap but the quality of the food and the extraordinary service makes the price a good deal for you. Staff is super friendly and willing to teach you how to get the most out of your shabu-shabu. Portions are right and the atmosphere is great

Firstly, please don't come here if you're not brave enough to try authentic Japanese cuisine, you'll just have a bad time. Also, most of their offerings are set menus that start at about 80$, so come prepared (they do take cards). However, if you're looking for an authentic experience with food that matches the price tag, you'll be in heaven.... More

Ate here on my last visit to Tokyo and it was so good, I had to go back on my most recent trip. It was just as excellent as my first meal. It's not cheap, but it's worth it to splurge on a nice shabu-shabu dinner. The kimono-clad waitstaff speak English and will guide you through the process and help... More

I visited this restaurant for lunch. The food is really good. We had shabu-shabu style meat. It was delicious. The decoration and ambiance is also very authentic and beautiful. I really recommend this restaurant if you are in the neighbourhood.

Japan has a lot to offer in terms of food and we definitely wanted to try sukiyaki and shabu-shabu. After our visit Sondhi-ji temple, we went lunch for this restaurant. Food was amazing, service was impeccable and presentation helped us to understand the rituals. Their sukiyaki bowls was fulfilling but shabu-shabu was a ritual similar to Swiss fondue but with...

Truth be told, we were not headed for the Imahan. It was only later that we realized what a top notch joint we had come upon. We did like the exterior and the fact that it seemed a little larger so we decided to go in. Staff was dressed in traditional Kimono and we got to eat in a booth... More

My Tokyo Friends took me to this wonderful culinary experience. We sat in the traditional area on tatami mats, but you have a choice. We had the fortune to enjoy both the Yakitori and the Shabu-Shabu. Not only my friends, but the kind woman who served us explained everything in English. This is expensive and the food can be different... More

Trying this imahan branch at Grandroof tokyo. Tried the set of ¥3,000+, it was very good. Their sukiyaki sauce was very tasty. They cooked the meat (surely not the matsuzaka) perfectly so you just dig in! They served them in a small claypot, together with pickles, miso soup, and rice. It was perfectly portioned for one person. You'll get mushrooms,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
