Edo Era Restaurants In Tokyo

A friend recently took me to Komagata Dojo restaurant in Asakusa and I had a great time. After eating in the 200 year old restaurant I started to wonder what other historic restaurants are left in Tokyo that I don't know about. Do you 'hounders have a favorite place that's been around for a hundred years or more?

  1. Nice idea for a topic.

    I like the inoshishi nabemono at Momonja in Ryogoku, which has been in business since the early 1700s.

    1. Nodaiwa in Akabanebashi.

      And I quite like Sarahina-Horii. It is an old shop, but obviously changed locations so no old-world-charming building left.

      FYI here is a web site that lists some shops / businesses that have been around in Edo/Tokyo for over 100 years:
