I can finally recommend a yakiniku restaurant for those who zest for beef without being deceived by the seasoning, Kunimoto. It is located a few steps away from Hamamatucho station.


I could not get the reservation for the “honten” (main restaurant) due to no table available, so I went to the “shinkan” (new restaurant) located in the same area.


First we were served with their signature salad and I ordered a corn tea as I find it unusual. The fresh scent and mouthwatering flavor was just nice for a long and tiring day.


So we ordered the course with all parts of the Japanese beef with their recommendation as we were required to order a course when making the reservation. It contains a different parts of the beef with their matching seasoning. For beef enthusiast, they are very careful with the seasoning by not covering the juiciness and taste of the high quality beef itself.


We were kinda hungry that day so as an extra we ordered “kamenoko” as it was not part of the set. Adding this order, the overall amount was just nice for 2 pax.


And so the dessert follows with a cup of tea. It is a Milk Pudding with Brown Cane Sugar syrup.


The reservation was not hard to make since it was on a weekday night. I went home and I could sleep smiling with a happy tummy.

  1. Thanks for this recommendation since I am still debating whether or not I should go to a steakhouse or a Yakiniku place for my next visit in Tokyo. I want to try the Wagyu beef there, and I am usually a fan of steaks, but perhaps I can enjoy a bigger variety of Wagyu with less of the ‘I am too full’ sensation that I suspect I would have with a steak

    There’s too many good Wagyu restaurants, I can’t even tell which is number one! Just to be safe, I suggest asking your hotel to make reservations before you actually land in Japan 🙂

  3. This place looks great. I love that in Japan the quality of the beef is really allowed to shine, and only the most basic of additions are required because the beef alone really is that good.

      Hi Paul, yes I couldn’t agree more! I was not a fan of beef before moving here.

    Hi there. Will be staying at Tokyo Grand Hotel (just two streets down from this restaurant) for a business trip. Yes, the meats do look good. What was the total damage on the wallet?

      Hi there ! It was about 10.000 yen.
