Akabane Restaurant Guide

Akabane in Tokyo's Kita ward is its transportation and commercial center. It is known as Tokyo's "Northern Entrance". Once it was a rustic backwater town compared to the neighboring post town of Iwabuchi, but after the installation of the Akabane train station in the Meiji era, it too quickly modernized. It has continued to develop into the Heisei era, and a brand new large-scale shopping district is under construction outside Akabane station's west exit. In the Akabane-Jujo area is the Jujo Ginza Shopping Center. Home to 200 stores, it is Kita ward's largest shopping district. Continuing along the street one finds the Jujo-Fujimi Shopping Center. The hustle and bustle here is a popular topic for the media.The Akabane-Iwabuchi area borders the Arakawa river. Many shrines and temples dedicated to the river are located there. In 1878 (Meiji Year 11) the Koyama Sake Brewery was established in Iwabuchi. It is the sole remaining brewery in all 23 wards, founded when an underground spring was discovered running from the Ochichibu mountains.Its most famous product, Marushin Masamune sake, has long since had many devoted drinkers.
