Published: January 13, 2023

This brightly lit storefront is the entrance to a large Showa era restaurant beautifully furnished and decorated in the style of yesteryear. This restaurant has been a fixture on the Kameido dining scene for 70 years. It is a popular place to relax after a visit to the nearby Katori Shrine and Tenjin Shrine.

Dining Room on the 1st floor

 

 

The large rooms on the second and third floors assure privacy for your special parties.

All rooms have an understated elegance that transports one back to a simpler, less stressful time.

 

You can see the traditional big battledore.

 

Kameido Toricho is a landmark of the local community as a place for banquets such as year-end and New Year’s parties, ceremonial occasions such as weaning ceremonies, Shichi Go San, Coming-of-Age ceremonies, family reunions, and longevity celebrations, and for ceremonial occasions including Buddhist memorial services.

 

Course meal for special occasions.

A sumptuous course using carefully selected ingredients, including their famous yakitori (grilled chicken), unaju (eel), 3 appetizers, sashimi, steamed egg custard, etc., is available for 7,600 yen.

 

I respect them for maintaining the traditions and recipes that made them popular back in Showa period. The sauces and techniques are sure to tug the heart strings of their customers who are seeking the  natsukashi nostalgic  flavors of that period.
