Popular Restaurants Around Suitengumae Station

(1)Ningyocho IMAHAN
Although this store is closer from Ningyōchō Station, it is still within walking distance from Suitengumae Station. This is a Japanese cuisine restaurant that specializes in beef hot pot dishes such as Sukiyaki and Shabu-shabu. IMAHAN is a famous long-established restaurant, with a history of over 100 years. Families often come to this restaurant after visiting Suitengumae Shrine with their newborns as part of a ritual called Omiyamairi. Lunches cost from 5,000yen, and dinners from 10,000 yen, which isn’t something you could afford every day, but it’s still worth the price if you are in the mood for a luxurious meal.

(2)Sandwich Parlor MATSUMURA
Another long-established restaurant, open since 1921. They have a great variety of breads and pastries to choose from. There is an eat-in area inside the store, where you can enjoy bread with a cup of coffee. My recommendation is the “Nakayoshi (good pals) Combination”, which is a slice of bread smeared with red bean paste and peanut butter. They have good taste in naming! The store opens at 7AM on weekdays, so it’s perfect for breakfast!
