Heirloom-breed Kenmidori chicken from Yamagata Prefecture is the bird of choice at this well-established yakitori shop, the main branch of which dates back to the 1930s. In the evenings your charcoal-grilled chicken is served with an impressive selection of around 100 craft sake from all over Japan. Budget around Y6000 for dinner with drinks, or Y1000 for an excellent donburi-style lunch.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
