Kobe beef is one of the famous food that Japan is proud of. It is probably the most well-known and highest quality beef in the world. It is famous story that when President Obama visited Japan, he requested Kobe beef and tuna for meal.

Ikuta is located 2 minutes walk from west exit of Yoyogi station which is specialized in Kobe beef. Walking down the nondescript street from the station, you will see the entrance of the restaurant on your left hand. The entrance is small so please watch out for passing by.

Everyone regards Yoyogi as a city for students and this is reflected to the price of the food. We are luckily able to eat Kobe beef stake at a fairly reasonable price!

Hamburg stake with Oroshiponzu (grated white radish mixed with soy souse and vinegar) is also popular as it is introduced in gourmet magazine. Juicy wagyu stake is offered at 1,200 yen.

If you would like to try something Japanese style, wagyu rib dombri (roasted wagyu is on top of rice) is recommended.

Ikuta has various courses for dinner between ¥4,200 and ¥10,500. With special charcoal stoves in each table, you can enjoy every moment of the cooking until the last delicious bite.

Ikuta pays tribute to the champion A5 rank Kobe beef. They buy certified cows whole to guarantee the highest-quality marbled beef cuts, which are so succulent and tender.
