“Fukusuke Building (outside view)”

“The stairway to Basement level 1”

The estimated travel time on foot is 3 minutes from Kichijōji Station – North Exit.

The exterior of Fukusuke building isn’t new anymore but it’s clearly well-maintained. As for the foreign travelers like me, it’s best to check the Kanji name of the resto first so as not to waste time upon your visit.

Since this restaurant is indeed famous, expect it to be overcrowded most of the time and long lines can be really a burden but if you wish to have a secure spot faster, it’s best to come in early like 30 minutes before the shop opens.


The interior of the restaurant is so simple and it is really a very limited space having only 8 available seats to accommodate the customers. The lighting is just dimly lit which is good for relaxation.

If you are dining alone, counter seats will be the best spot. This place is also recommended if you’re with a friend or co-worker, and even for dating. Most of their customers are locals and some foreign travelers like Koreans and Chinese people.

Recommended Menu

Beef Cutlet & Barley Rice & Grated Yam Set”

This place is best known for its deep fried beef cutlet or commonly known here in Japan as “Gyukatsu”. Their beef cutlet is described as tender and juicy. It gives that satisfying taste to the customers!

It comes with a mini stone grill just for customers who wish to grill the inner part of gyukatsu longer than necessary. This setup mostly applies to foreign customers.
