Hiranoya Inside the store

Excellent sweetfish cuisine at Hiranoya, a long-established restaurant in Toriihon

Hiranoya, which has been in business for 400 years, has a sweetfish wholesaler near the first torii gate of Atago Shrine, as well as a teahouse where they served their specialty shinko dumplings to travelers. Later, they began to serve ayu dishes using fresh ayu caught in the clear waters of the Hozu River system, and are known to have been a favorite of Masako Shirasu and others.

Hiranoya Cuisine

Lunch course from 6,000 yen (excluding tax and service charge), including grilled plump and fragrant sweetfish and freshly washed carp from the pond, which can be enjoyed throughout the year.

From May to November, gourmets from all over Japan come to enjoy ayu (sweetfish) courses. The ayu fish is served in a small, quiet restaurant, and the babbling brook that runs along the side of the restaurant is a delight to savor.
