Asakusa / Asakusabashi Restaurants
Komagata Dozeu was established in 1801. It was a time when Tokugawa Ienari, the eleventh and longest serving shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate, reigned over Japan. The founder, Sukeshichi Echigoya, was born in what is now known as Kita-katsushika in Saitama Prefecture, and at the age of 18 he moved to the capital Edo to take on an apprenticeship before opening his own restaurant in Asakusa’s Komagata area.In addition to the founder’s dishes of Dojo Nabe [Japanese Loach Hot Pot] and Dojo Jiru [Loach Soup], the 2nd-generation Sukeshichi introduced Kujira Nabe [Whale Hot Pot], and business continued to boom thereafter.With the support of our loyal customers and the hard work of former masters, we have been able to pass on the Edo flavors and building to our current 6th-generation master. We hope to continue to provide our customers with the same delicious flavors that we have been serving since the Edo days with the same outstanding Edo hospitality. More
