The Restaurant

Koharuken has been open for over 100 years and is currently run jointly by the third and fourth generations, using the same recipes and ingredients.
The restaurant was originally opened in 1912 by a couple who used to work for Japan’s former prime minister Aritomo Yamagata. Mr. Kojima was the private chef while his wife was the housekeeper.
Katsudon, the restaurant's signature dish, was created by the restaurant’s first-generation owners when yoshoku (Japanese-style western food) was fashionable in Tokyo, which explains why the dish is slathered with demi-glace, a rich sauce that’s a staple in classic French cuisine.
You can try this deliciousness for 1,300 yen.
Besides katsudon, you can also order a hearty hamburger, tempura, katsukare, and other Japanese staple dishes done to perfection.
Have a flavorful time-trip and come to Koharuken!
