“Yakitori Shinohara” is the only famous yakitori restaurant
in Tokyo to taste the rare Kobe Takasaka chicken.
After passing through the approach to the restaurant,
which is located quietly on Seijoki Dori in Nishi-Azabu,
you will find a counter made of a 2,000-year-old , 8-meter-long cypress tree,
which is the sacred tree of Mitsumine Shrine in Saitama.
There is a marble-topped table on the same level as the counter,
allowing diners to enjoy watching the finishing
touches to their cooking right in front of them.
The hood of the charcoal grill, finished with a corroded copper plate,
has a bottom-pulled exhaust system
that makes it look like a sushi counter without any smoke.
Isamu Noguchi’s favorite material for sculpture,
Datekanmuri stone
