Experience Japanese culture with your five senses

With around thirty seats, our shop incorporates a modern design alongside warmth and lighting achieved through use of articles like antique Japanese furnishings, ancient tree-wood and books. We’ ve created a casual space for customers featuring a sort of Kyoto-esque serenity.
In the daytime, customers can enjoy what we call the Japanese Culinary Experience and Japanese Café Experience. In the evening, customers can reserve a table enjoy some Japanese dishes, along with carefully selected Japanese saké.
We also plan to hold various kinds of Japanese [cultural] events on a regular basis (such as events related to shamisen, rakugo, biwa, saké tasting etc.).


Why, Nishi-Asakusa?

CHAGOHAN TOKYO is located in Nishi-Asakusa, an area that’ s come to take on a huge rule in terms of food. The area boasts the largest shopping district in the country which specializes in cooking, with the street parallel to Kappabashi featuring various food services shops.
When you’ re cooking something or getting a drink of tea, utensils for both purposes are a must. At CHAGOHAN TOKYO, we know that an important element for the enjoyment of cuisine or tea is the proximity to environments where one can get everything they need for those purposes.
Nishi-Asakusa is not the kind of area you’ d think of as the center of Asakusa (like the area surrounding the Sensōji temple); it’ s a bit more relaxed. The area extends to Kokusai-dōri in the east, and the Kappabashi-dōri shopping district to the west; the area is home to businesses both new and long-established. The calming environment immerses visitors in a relaxing, Japanese atmosphere that allows one really get a sense for what the Yamanote area is all about.
