Hokkaido Restaurant “Robata”

Feeling the good old days of Japan in Shimbashi, Tokyo

By Tomoko Kamishima    - 1 min read

There are uncountable numbers of restaurants in Tokyo. Shimbashi especially, with its many reasonably priced restaurants, bars, and izakaya pubs, is always crowded with office workers.

“Robata” serves lots of simple but tasty small dishes featuring Hokkaido seafood. They are a bit expensive, yet of a really high quality. The interior has a traditional feel to it - like Japan in the good old days. And if you visit here on Tuesday or Saturday night, you can enjoy watching Rakugo (traditional comic storytelling) The 1st stage starts at around 7 and the 2nd stage at around 9 PM. Even if you can’t understand any of the details of the stories performed, you’ll have fun and will be able to share laughter with the other customers.

“Robata” is a nice seafood restaurant where you can enjoy nice healthy food and the traditional Japan in Shimbashi.

Japan is a small island nation, but we have a huge number of surprising things to discover here. Many of these delights can be found when you step off the main street onto small side paths. I really enjoy studying about and researching various aspects of traditional Japanese culture, and then sharing this information with visitors to Japan. I hope you will enjoy it, too! ARTICLE INDEX & PHOTOS:  An index of most of my Japan Travel articles can be found at the entry page of my blog, and my photos are shown here.  日本はとても小さな国ですが、大通りから一本小道に入ればたくさんの発見があります。日本人が積み重ねてきた歴史を学びながら、古い建物や庭を訪ね、物語の舞台となった景色を眺めて、皆様といっしょに日本文化の奥深さを探求していきたいと思います。
