Kamameshi restaurant

Good evening everyone!

Today I’m going to introduce a very famous and popular and cheap affordable KAMAMESHI(釜めし) restaurant in Asakusa.


The restaurant name is  “釜めし 春 (Kamameshi Haru)” .

“Haru” means spring in Japanese.

Haru is an old restaurant started in 1926 and has been offering fantastic Kamameshi over the decades.

I bet you can enjoy authentic taste in Haru!


Before introducing Haru, do you know what is Kamameshi? Or have you ever had it?

Kamameshi is one of Japanese traditional dishes, which is cooked and served in an iron pot called “Kama”.

Rice and other ingredients (usually chicken, fish, vegetables, mushrooms, etc.) in it and the harmony of them is really nice…….sounds awesome!

you must eat this Asakusa food KAMAMESHI.

Haru is said to be the first restaurant who started serving Kamameshi in Japan.


Haru is located near Asakusa stations, about 6-7 minutes’ walk from all lines.

This time we went there from Tokyo metro Ginza-sen station.

If you go to there from asakusa guest house sevengarden , It takes 7min or so.

Here is the directions to Haru!

Let’s go inside!


We were lead into a table seat in 2nd floor. Haru has 3 floors and also has tatami seats.

The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice,kind of good-old atmosphere.


Nice staff served Japanese tea for us.

While drinking tea, let’s choose the menu.
