Tamahide, established in 1760, is the very first restaurant that created and served a Japanese popular dish, "oyakodon". It is located just a minute from Ningyocho station.

Oyakodon is made of chicken and eggs simmered together and then topped over a bowl of rice. Their oyakodon has juicy and tender chicken which goes well with the creamy eggs. There is always a long line but it is totally worth the wait.
