Hand-cut A5 kuroge wagyu sukiyaki prepared to the exacting standards one would expect from Tokyo’s oldest sukiyaki restaurant in Nihonbashi.

Restaurant Details

When Iseju’s first owner, Miyamoto Jubei, closed his antique shop in Honjo to open Iseju in 1869, the plan was to pass along the nutritional benefits of sukiyaki — Japanese-style hotpot — to the folks in Meiji-era Nihonbashi, Tokyo’s former mercantile hub. When his father was facing health challenges, Miyamoto turned to beef for its nourishing properties, laying the foundation for what would become a culinary institution. He reached his mission and went far beyond. Today, dining at Iseju is a once-in-a-lifetime affair backed by a 150-year-old culinary legacy. Under the stewardship of its seventh-generation owner, the restaurant resides in a quaint nook by Kodemmacho and remains steadfast in its dedication to sukiyaki tradition. They select A5-grade Japanese kuroge wagyu for its exceptional quality, prioritizing intrinsic excellence over brand recognition. Skilled craftsmen continue to hand-cut the beef using traditional techniques; even the thinnest tendons are cut in precisions that machines cannot achieve. At the heart of their menu is the traditional sukiyaki iron-kettle hotpot, featuring beautifully marbled beef and fresh vegetables. Cooked over charcoal, they are simmered in the house-secret soy-based warishita sauce, a recipe handed down through generations. Prepared tableside in private rooms by dedicated staff, guests find peace in a setting that has changed little since its inception: tatami-matted floors, low tables and traditional furnishings. It would be a hard push to find a restaurant with more tradition and history flowing through it than Iseju. Reserve one of their highly in-demand tables or opt for the room with sunken kotatsu to enjoy Tokyo’s little pocket of history.
