Invite from my childhood buddy Scott to have some great Yakiniku in Oizumi-Gakuen (on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line). Didn't take many pics but looking at the wall there were in excess of 20+ signature plates from celebrities that have visited this shop.
Kalbi (800yen) and Roosu (900yen).... Definitely have to recommend the lower ranking Kalbi vs the Top Grade 1,850yen selection. From what I've heard seems Japanese charge lower amounts for imported beef vs the domestically raised stuff. But it was super tender and great.
1,600yen Jinro bottle that will be waiting for you if your party can't finish it all in one sitting.
Overall this place was great... its very rare in Tokyo to have diners sitting next to you to start up a conversation but in the burbs there is a friendliness that seems to be all but lost in the big city.
