in Asakusa & Sumida River

If you're keen to try chanko-nabe – the hearty, protein-rich stew that fattens up sumo wrestlers – Tomoegata is a great place to do it. The daily lunch special includes a reasonably sized individual serving of chanko-nabe. In the evening, groups can splash out on huge steaming pots filled with beef, scallops, mushrooms and tofu.
