Akabane Station And 5 Of Its Best Yakiniku Restaurants!

Akabane Station, just north of Ikebukuro is perhaps often overlooked by tourists. It has some great restaurants however. Among them are some really popular yakiniku places. Here are 5 of the best located at a short walking distance from the Akabane Station!

Feel free to follow favy!

Jimbocho Shokuniku

Jimbocho is just at a minute walk from the station. This place is for true meat lovers! You want to get absolutely filled with delicious yakiniku? Come here during lunch time and have the all-you-can-eat meat course for 950 yen! Even if there's a time limit of 45 minutes this is still a ridiculously low price for all-you-can-eat yakiniku! Although this is by no means a fancy restaurant, the quality is surprisingly good for the price, which makes it one of the best rated shops in Akabane according to many online sources.


Komien is located at about a 5 minute walk from the Akabane Station. This place has a nice warm, traditional-style ambiance. The meat is cooked by charcoal on roasters right in front of you. The meat plates are about 780 to 1,500 yen, and the quality is of high grade. You can even get some wagyu (Japanese beef). Only open during the dinner hours, expect to pay around 6,000 yen for an amazing meal!


Ikudon is located at a 3 minute walk from the Akabane Station. It has a rough interior decor which is what we like after all when we go out for some yakiniku! This place is very cheap. One meat serving is between 430 and 780 yen. They have many choices that includes tripes, one of their specialty.

Horomonyaki Goten

Horumonyaki Goten is at a 3 mintue walk from the Akabane Station. This is another cheap and rowdy place where you're garanteed to have a good time and good yakiniku. You can eat outiside too, which is nice to feel the atmosphere of the city at night. Horumonyaki specializes in "horumon" or tripes (it's in its name afterall). The restaurant's most popular item is wagyu kokuchan (Japanese beef tripes) which sells for only 590 yen.


En is located at a 2 minute walk from the East Exit of the Akabane Station. It's a branch of the popular restaurant chain. The restaurant is on three floors and has a total of 50 seats. Prices are below average. You can have a very satisfying dinner for 3,000 yen or less. The special thing to try here is the tsubo yakiniku, long pieces of meat marinated in a vase (tsubo). The karubi (korean-style marinate bbq ribs) is the most popular (580 yen).


Akabane has some great yakiniku restaurant among so many other things! The restaurants in this article are all very popular for good reasons. Make sure to try them out when you're in Akabane!
