Yakitori In Yokohama You'll Remember! 5 Stand-Out Restaurants

Yakitori is a traditional Japanese cuisine that most people really love, no matter where they come from. It consists of grilled skewered chicken (many different parts of it), often seasoned with a soy-based sauce. In Yokohama, here are the places you should definitely go to for yakitori!

Noge Suehiro 野毛末広

This is a restaurant of long standing that has been run by the same family for three generations. It's been a flagship restaurant in the Noge district for that reason for a long time. What is so good about the place is the quality of the pieces you get served, the perfect seasoning and the exquisitely juicy meat. What's more, the skewers are way bigger than what you get at most yakitori restaurants! This is the perfect place for drinking and eating lots of quality yakitori for cheap!
Located an 8-minute walk from the Sakuragicho Station.

Shinki 伸喜

This is a local yakitori joint that is really authentic. The place is really small and smokey, and there are only some counter seats from which you can see the skewers being grilled. They have a simple menu (in Japanese) on which most of the things are just ¥160. If you're not sure what to order, just say "moriawase" for an assortment. You won't be disappointed in the quality! The place is almost always full despite being a pretty secluded restaurant. Take good note of that storefront. They serve sake, shochu and wine too if you want to have a few drinks with your yakitori.
At a 5-minute walk from the Sakuragicho Station.

Yakitori Saito 焼き鳥 さいとう

This small restaurant of just 14 seats only opened in 2013 but has already received much attention. It has even been included in the Bib Gourmand of the Michelin Guide, which highlights restaurants that are exceptionally good, yet affordable. Most people at Yakitori Saito pay from ¥3,000 to ¥4,000. You can't go wrong with basically anything you try here, but the sasami (high-quality chicken breast meat) served with a little bit of wasabi topping is a must-try.

Sumibiyakitori Azuma 炭火焼鳥あずま

This place is highly recommendable if you want to sit with a group of friends because there are plenty of table seats, unlike other smaller yakitori restaurants which have mostly counter seats. The charcoal grilled yakitori is really nice too. Not only that, but you can also order some sashimi and even some hot pots! This is a basically a proper izakaya offering a traditional laid back environment with great Japanese cuisine! There is also an all-you-can-drink option.
Near the Kannai Station and the Nihon-Odori Station.

Ribatei 里葉亭

This is the place for unpretentious, yet very high-end yakitori! It is by-and-large the most reputable address in Yokohama for the cuisine. Although a bit pricey at ¥8,000 and over, we recommend that you try an "omakase" course (leave it to the chef) here. You will get a nice variety of delectable yakitori skewers. Perhaps the signature item at this address is the "chochin" which is grilled chicken with egg yolks on a skewer.
Located a 4-minute walk from the Kannai Station.
