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!
