Tsukishima Monja Street

Tsukishima Monja Street

Tsukishima Monja Street locates a walking distance from prominent sightseeing areas like Tsukiji and Toyosu. The area of Tsukishima has a nostalgic, downtown Tokyo atmosphere. Since the 1980s, the area has been known as a famous street for having countless monja restaurants. “Monja” is a Tokyo-born dish. A mixture of batter, vegetables, meat or fish, and even ingredients like cheese or crackers, are mixed up and flattened out on a grill. When the mixture is heated up to a more solid consistency and is cooked up to a nice caramel color, it is ready to eat. It is eaten right off of the grill with a small spatula. On Tsukishima Monja Street, you can find traditional monja shops like “Iroha”, which opened in 1955. They have many types of monja with a variety of unique ingredients.
