It’s fitting that the original branch of Imahan, the city’s most famous chain of shabu- shabu (sautéed beef) restaurants, is located at the edge of Shitamachi as the eating style here reflects the unpretentious nature of the neighbourhood. Sitting at low tables on the tatami, you can get happy on sake as your meat and seasonal vegetables simmer. Although it’s certainly an expensive affair (prices rise with the quality of the meat ordered), a meal at Imahan is the most dignified way to enjoy this revered culinary treat.
