If you love grilled meats and barbeque, you have to try Jiromaru located in Tokyo's Shinjuku district. It is a traditional yakiniku (Japanese grilled meat) restaurant. Here, the guests stand as they eat, reflecting past customs. Besides the experience, Jiromaru also serves high-quality meat at reasonable prices. Dishes start at only 150 yen (around $1.50 USD). So, don’t hesitate to try it out! For the adventurous, intestines are also available. Unlike their boiled counterparts in Kyushu, grilled organs are much easier to accept if you are trying for the first time! The shop has long opening hours, going from 11am to 5am the next day. If you are ever in Tokyo, this is a must-try meat grilling experience.
