Ajijyo Horikawa's Ajitokoro Ajigen has been a favorite for 30 years for its grilled skewers.

There is a counter and two tables behind it. Both tables are facing the owner, Genchi Sakaguchi, who is grilling kushiyaki skewers, symbolizing the friendly atmosphere of the restaurant. The restaurant has been open for 30 years. The menu has been enhanced with new items such as croquettes, but the chicken dishes that have been familiar to regular customers are still there.


We are proud of our Tsukune, which are made with more than 10 different ingredients to make them fluffy and chewy. The availability of quality ingredients is also the reason why they can offer chicken tataki and other dishes. Now, Mr. Tam, the second generation of the family, is struggling to carry on Mr. Sakaguchi's taste and the restaurant.


Two skewers of tsukune (skewers) are priced at 300 yen. The tsukune contains kuwai from Southeast Asia, which adds a crunchy texture to the tsukune.


Oden platter (5 kinds) 550 yen. In winter, start with a bowl of oden, including eggs and daikon radish, which are well seasoned.


Jidori Chicken Tataki (Chicken Fillet Tataki) 530 yen. The chicken tataki is served with light ponzu (Japanese citrus juice) and spicy yuzu kosho (Japanese citrus pepper).
