If you like grilled meat, this is the place you wanna be! As the owner of this restaurant is originally a butcher, they offer tasty meat with reasonable prices. We stayed in JR Narita area which is close to Tokyo International Airport/Narita. We had a variety of meat, beer and some tea. It costed less than 40 dollars. It was very tasty.

This is one of our favorite meat places in Narita. I normally don't like grilling my own meat, but the meat her is really good. A year ago they had an English menu, but this time no one could be found. They gave us an English menu for drinks, but not food. They did stop at our table and say one page was beef and the other was pork. Each plate was approximately 650 yen on up to approx. 1200 yen per plate. We ordered 6 different plates, lettuce, rice and a few drinks. Total came out to $75 usd for a family of 4, but it was a really good meal. They are all very nice, but be prepared to take off your shoes. There is an upstairs where you put your shoes in a box and take the number to your table. It's a fun place to have dinner.

Have you ever been on a strange land, where the language is simply so different that you have to gather your nerve and get things done by sheer force of will? Well, I must confess it was not that bad when I visited Japan -thank God there is enough signage in English pretty much everywhere if look carefully!-, but it was somewhat challenging at first.

Why is this relevant? Well, there are places that make you totally forget about the language barrier and overcome it by talking the great universal language of food. The Tanaka Shoten was one of those places: savory food, service with a smile and the patrons around you seem to be nice too.

I was wondering around Narita on my last night in Japan... at some point I stumbled at this small road full of various restaurants. I was immediately undecided because everything looked great!

Curiously enough, it was thanks to the friendly locals that I managed to decide on a place. While I was walking outside the Tanaka Shoten, a couple gentlemen walked out. They might have had a few drinks and were really happy. One of the guys looked at me and with a broken English told me "This place, very, very good! Try!" I politely thanked him for the recommendation and they stumbled away in the night.

Well, who was I to deny local knowledge? Any place the locals recommend must be good, right? Well, so I walked in. The place is not big, is super cozy and the smells... awesome! It was a mouthwatering prologue to a memorable meal.

I was quickly shown to an empty grill-table and a cold beer had arrived in a couple minutes. They brought me a very interesting menu from which I chose what seemed to be a sampler of various marbled meats. A few minutes later the plate arrived and after a bit of a struggle to get the grill going, I was cooking and eating a great meal.

Alas, I did not stay too long as I had a couple more places to visit, but this is one meal I will remember candidly for many years to come. I definitely regret not finding it earlier on my trip, but on the other hand, I look forward to go back soon and try it again.

This place and this meal will always remind me that food is as universal a language as it gets and that it breaks barriers and create bonds like nothing else can.

Found this place on our last day in Japan before heading to the airport. We were headed back to our hotel coming from Shinshoji temple. Decided to veer off the main road. Glad we did!

Tiny place but the food was awesome. Highly recommended.
