Tsukishima Restaurant Guide

Tsukishima is well known for monja-yaki.Tsukishima is in an area called Tsukishima Plot No. 1 in Chuo Ward.It is reclaimed land made with material from Tokyo Bay.Today, Tsukishima Plots No. 2 and No. 3 make up Kachidoki and No. 4 is Harumi. They are outside the Tsukishima area.The Tsukishima Nishinaka shopping street, nicknamed "Monja Street," has over 70 monja-yaki and okonomiyaki shops. The "monja boom" of the 1980s made many shops switch to monja-yaki.Before World War II, Tsukishima's standard okonomiyaki had red ginger, sakura shrimp, and squid. They later made new recipes to make different okonomiyaki.At one of the intersections along Monja Street is the Nishinaka Koban, Tokyo's oldest existing police box. Although this police box closed on March 31st, 2007, the building is still there. From April 1st, 2007, it came under the management of the Nishinaka Street Area Public Safety Center.
