#1 SHINKAWA/Chanko nabe restaurant :
Former Sumo wrestler opened this place to introduce sumo wrestler hot pot. Big pot of meat and vegetables. Good and healthy! The atmosphere is very Japanese, and very friendly. Although there is no English menu, you can order “chanko nabe” and they will understand. There are lots of side dishes you can order too such as sashimi, tofu, noodles, salad etc.
My guests often use this restaurant and always say they had a great time. Also the owner and staff know me and they can ring me anytime if you are having problem ordering etc : )
Please contact me and I can make a reservation for you. For large pot that is cooked at your table costs about Y2,200 per person. It takes about 5min to walk from the house.
