Excellent grilled seasonal vegetables share top billing with the grilled meats at this charming neighborhood teppanyaki restaurant. There are pork-stuffed giant mushrooms, asparagus with cheese and basil, nicely charred bamboo shoots with thick slabs of bacon, shiitake shumai dumplings, grilled eggplant with shrimp and sudachi, grilled broccoli with bacon and garlic - over twenty vegetable dishes in total.

If you've still got room, the grilled meats are skillfully prepared and feature regional heirloom breeds of pork and chicken. Note that portions are a bit larger than a typical izakaya, and ordered dishes can arrive en masse. Wines start at under Y3000 and there's also sake, shochu and beer. Budget around Y3000-5000 for dinner with drinks.
