Yakitori Stadium Tokyo: The Homeground of Legendary Japanese Yakitori Opens in Yurakucho

18.July.2018 | FOOD / SPOT

The National Yakitori Association is looking to promote the food and culture of yakitori―skewered chicken―to the world. To achieve this, they have opened Yakitori Stadium Tokyo. Described as ‘the homeground of legendary Japanese yakitori,’ you’ll be able to taste and compare different yakitori from around the country, witness yakitori being freshly made in front of you by top yakitori chefs, and more.

The shop takes on a ‘traditional-modern’ design. It’s decked out with a white hanging roof to give it that symbolic stadium feel. Top chefs from yakitori chains around Japan are invited periodically to cook yakitori in front of customers which can be eaten at the counter seats. There’s also relaxing individual rooms for groups too.


The huge monitor in the restaurant plays videos covering the history and culture of Japanese yakitori as well as yakitori events held in Japan and overseas.

From its 5th floor location, which overlooks Yurakucho Station, you can watch shinkansen dart past and a gorgeous nighttime view where you can see Hibiya.

If you’re a lover of yakitori then rest assured you’re going to love Yakitori Stadium Tokyo.
