Only nicknamed Tsukushima Monja Street, this awning-covered section is located on Nishinakadori, and has over 75 dedicated restaurants all serving up the specialty on self-cook griddles. It is easy to find, you simply find exit 7 at Tsukishima station and it is right in front of you. At night it is really pretty, with plenty of lights and inviting smells – all making it difficult to choose where to go! There are a few restaurants with English and this is signposted pretty clearly, so have a wander and see which one you like the look of. Some will have queues, especially in the evening – so keep an eye out for a name list to see how many you’re behind and make sure you get yourself on there!
