Negishi Sasanoyuki Tofu Restaurant at Ueno, Tokyo | 根ぎし笹乃雪


I will introduce a restaurant where you can eat historical tofu dishes in Tokyo.
It is a tofu restaurant with a history of 320 years since establishment.

A restaurant with a history of inventing silken tofu.

There are various theories about the origin of tofu, but generally, it is said to have started from Liu An, king of Huainan, the grandson of Gaozu of Han in China in the second century B.C., and it was introduced to Japan along with Buddhism in Nara period.

After that, tofu in Japan developed to Japanese taste.

About 315 years ago, Chubei Tamaya, the first head of Sasanoyuki, who moved from Kyoto to Edo to accompany the Ueno Royal family (son of emperor Go-Sai), invented the silken tofu first in Edo.

And the beginning of this store was when they opened a tofu teahouse in Negishi, Tokyo.

It was the first silken tofu with a smooth texture in Edo (Tokyo).

Uenomiya liked their Shop ‘s tofu very much and was praised, so he named it ” Sasano Yuki” and named it the store’s name.

The signboard given at that time is still displayed in the store.

Specialty, historical tofu

The well water of Sasanoyuki takes several 100 years to collect the water vein that reaches from Musashino from 80 meters underground.

The tofu made with this natural water and high-quality, safe soybeans from Japan has been loved by many intellectuals and celebrities in Japan as it has a rich flavor and juicy flavor.

We continue to make traditional tofu using well water and bittern, following the original method.

The owner cares about the menu and the ingredients and has a baby and a child, and the mother can do as much as she can.

I try to cook with peace of mind.


Specialty Ankake Tofu

Their specialty is “Ankake tofu”, which has been sold since their establishment.

At the time of the establishment, Ankake tofu was the only product in business, but Edokko, who love new things, competed with Ankake Kinugoshi tofu for the first time and added many bowls.

When Mr. Uenomiya came to the restaurant, he was praised as being very delicious and told to bring two bowls from now on, so it is a custom to serve two bowls to customers.
