Welcome to SHIDORI

SHIDORI is a yakitori specialty restaurant in Nihonbashi, just a three-minute walk from Kodenma-cho station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line. Hidden in a quiet back street, it’s not the typical crowded, smoky, noisy place you’d expect of yakitori joints.

All ingredients are carefully selected and prepared every morning by the chef owner himself. He’s been performing this ritual for over 35 years. Hand-skewered chicken is grilled over Binchotan charcoal from the Kishu region until it’s crispy on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside.

Come enjoy SHIDORI’s authentic yakitori dishes with Japanese sake. Look for the large Noren-screen with the name of the restaurant printed in black on white fabric.
