Where is Yakiniku Sutaminaen?
Akabane station is about 10 minutes train ride from Shinjuku or Shibuya. Another 10 minutes ride of bus or taxi from Akabane station, there is the best Yakiniku restaurant in Japan, Stamina-en.
At Japan’s gourmet site, it is always at the top ranking and is famous as celebrities often visit. The other day, I went to Stamina-en strongly recommended by my friend who is a foodie.
I decided to visit on Saturday that opens at 16:30. For it is a weekend, I was quite sure that there would be a long line. I wanted to start eating at 19:00 so thought lining up at 17:00 is ideal…!
But unplanned occurrence happened!
I got on the bus at Akabane station but it was totally a different one… Got off the bus at middle of nowhere. There were only private vehicles and buses and NO taxis at all. Finally I caught a taxi and arrived at around 18:00PM.
Definitely recommend that taking a taxi from the first place to visit the restaurant. It is only about 10 minutes ride.
⑦Boneless Short Rib
The time for queuing was about 2 hours. I stayed in the restaurant for only about an hour but I am sure that I will come here again. I totally understand why this Stamina en is always at top ranking on gourmet website. The best Yakiniku I’ve ever had.
When you cannot take time to line up for you need time for sightseeing, weekdays’ evenings are good choice. Even Stamine en is a bit far from Akabane station you can get there within 30 minutes from Shinjuku or Ikebukuro, the center of Tokyo. We would like you to enjoy one of Japanese meals, Yakiniku, at Stamina en.
