Sukiyaki Bento, Asakusa Imahan, Ueno station, Tokyo

At the Bento Stand in ecute, Ueno Station

Imahan is very famous restaurant serving Sukiyaki in Asakusa, establish on 1895 at Asakusa. This restaurant has small stands in department stores or major stations in Tokyo as the sister company. You will enjoy the sukiyaki with rice easily and reasonably as sukiyaki bento.

I had been to Kumagaya to have a small party with my friends as the oyster bar style. On boarding to Kumagaya in late afternoon, I bought the Sukiyaki bento at Ueno station concourse named "ecute" which Japan railway company of East Japan had produced shopping mall for the passenger. Ueno had very local and classical Tokyo downtown atmosphere. The shops in ecute kept the style and fashions according to Ueno style. A lot of old restaurants and sweets shops, which have long history and have been well-known to the people in Tokyo had stands or small shops for the customers.

The thin sliced and braised beef meats were very lovely. The sugar-soy sauce based sauce show the traditional preference of Edokko (originally come from Tokyo for three generations). The sliced meats were juicy and had the nice match with rice. Sliced onion and Tofu was also braised with the sauce with the same sauce for beef. All things were very nostalgic but a little bit luxury because of the name Imahan.
