Aoi-Marushin: Get Your Tempura Fix in Asakusa
Aoi-Marushin (葵丸進) was founded near Senso-ji Temple's famed Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate) in 1946. Specializing in tempura and tendon (tempura on rice), the restaurant moved to its present location half a block west of the gate in 1965. Just keep an eye out for the tempura display and deep blue noren hanging at the entrance!
Known for using lots of batter, this is a great shop for getting your authentic tempura fix. The tendon options start at ¥1,900, while tempura sets start at ¥2,000. Full course dinners are also available with a reservation.
