Kurumaya Bekkan: Stunning Wagyu Teppanyaki Restaurant in Shinjuku

Updated October 31, 2019 | by Chad A. Thiele, 23 year veteran of Tokyo.

Kurumaya Bekkan is an amazing teppanyaki restaurant specializing in flat-iron grilling high-grade Japanese wagyu beef in Shinjuku.

Teppanyaki means flat iron (teppan-) grilled (-yaki). But if you’ve ever been to a quality teppanyaki shop in Japan you know — it’s nothing short of breathtaking.

The way the chef slices through the flawlessly seared beef with ease. The sizzle and sounds. It all comes together to create an incredible experience and delicious food.

Kurumaya Bekkan serves more than just teppanyaki, and it’s all tasty. In the video you can see they tried the sea bass and lobster. Both absolutely incredible.

If you’re craving some quality teppanyaki, and top-grade wagyu beef, Kurumaya won’t disappoint.

Is Kurumaya Bekkan English friendly?

You bet. They have English menus available upon request and the meals are set courses. Essentially you decide on your price range the the chef starts grilling it front of your eyes.

The sign outside is in romaji too so it’s easy to spot.

How much does Kurumaya Bekkan cost?

Budget for about ¥5,000 per person, but credit cards are accepted. You can save quite a bit by going for lunch, about ¥2,000 per person for lunch courses.

They don’t have parking so plan for either train fare, or paid parking if you drive — and there is a 10% dinner service fee at this restaurant (not at lunch).
