Yakitori Arakiyama is a new izakaya in Shinjuku with a bit of a throw-back appeal to simpler times. It’s modern, but the design also gives a nod to the traditional Japanese hunter.
Besides, it’s a new izakaya with an interesting selection of yakitori. Do you need more info than that? 😉
“In addition to serving up chicken skewers sourced from Kawamata, Yakitori Arakiyama also supports the dwindling community of traditional hunters, and offers up special gibier (game) meat dishes such as wild boar and duck.” (grapeJapan)
