We came here for the tonkatsu and was good. There was a line to get in around lunch time but it moved very fast. We had the option to sit at the bar but we wanted to sit inside to see the decor. I had...More

I've had the pleasure of eating here at Tonkatsu Maisen for the first time back in December 2015. I will say that it was the best Tonkatsu I've ever had in my life. Traveling to Japan again in February of 2018, I've went to try...More

I ordered their pork tonkatsu meal and the meat was so soft that the pork just melts in your mouth! What I liked about what I ordered is that it came with unlimited rice and cabbage!

We visited the Restuarant in April during the peak cherry blossom visit after a short walk from yoyogi park. The food was very good easily a great standard for tonkatsu. The pork in the set meal was very tender and had just the right amount...More

We got there just before the restaurant opened - there was a queue forming already. We managed to get a table quickly but was advised that we had 1 hour at the table which was fine by us. The service is prompt, polite and the...More

The pork is flavorful - in the way that only Japanese pork is, and the crust, oh, the crust, is so, *so* light, crunchy, and texturally perfect. The "sets" come w/ unlimited rice and cabbage - something that you might not think you'll need, but...More

Spend a few minutes to read the explanation of the different type of meat available. If you can, go at lunch time to try the very limited supply of special pork from around Japan Come on an empty stomach, leave satisfied and happy!

Growing up in Hawaii, you learn to love all kinds of katsu. Tonkatsu is what I have always thought of as Japanese comfort food. Deep fried and crispy on the outside and juicy and tender pork on the inside. Slathered in a tangy yet sweet...More

The main restaurant is located in a residential neighborhood in Harajuku about a 10 min walk from Takeshita dori. With the help of Google Maps, we found it easily and waited about 10 minutes during lunch. We were seated upstairs in the tatami room. Service...More

Was originally recommended another place by a friend who frequents Japan as much as I do. However, as it was a family trip we instead opted for another place, and this was the result. It is in one of those typically Japanese small streets, which...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

About 10-15min walk from harajuku station. You can take different route to get there, as it's not off the Takeshita dori. I would avoid going that way as it's too crowded- unless you want to tour through Takeshita dori on... More

Hi Ivy, Apologies for late response, didn't get notified! I can't remember exactly but probably no fish, chicken maybe... :) I think they do have prawn or seafood choices, very limited though.
