Birdland Ginza

Tokyo Yakitori

The first ever yakitori restaurant in history to be awarded a Michelin star and which established Yakitori as one of the top cuisines.

Yakitori has long been considered as a cuisine of the common folk and one solely to be eaten while drinking.

For over 30 years the owner of Birdland Ginza and one of the legends of the Yakitori industry, Toshihiro Wada, perfected his art of Yakitori by selecting Shamo chicken from the Okukuji region and creating his own special style of cooking the poultry, and this elevated this craft to the point of his restaurant becoming the very Yakitori establishment in history to be awarded a Michelin star.

“Anyone can be come a cook, but the skill of cooking meat is a natural talent” Chef Wada claims. And even with this natural talent, it has taken Chef Wada decades to finally perfect the top level of cooking Yakitori which he now displays at his restaurant.

We hope you have the opportunity to experience the combination of the freshest ingredients, strictly-selected cuts and the highest cooking techniques within the Yakitori industry in Chef Wada’s courses.
