    So much interesting meat. In Denmark we usually don’t eat the tongue and the heart, but I’m really curious to try it:)

    • Ryoko says:

      Almost all parts of the cows are eaten in Japan.
      I think the tongue and heart is easy to eat for beginners in terms of the texture and the taste 🙂

  2. kei says:

    Hi, do we need to make reservation in advance to eat at Jumbo?

    • Ryoko says:

      Yes, because Jumbo is very popular and always full with reservations. So, almost all people visits there without reservation can’t enter the restaurant.

  3. desmond says:

    HI , If i take Oedo line to Hongo-sanchome which number exit to go out nearer ? any email , whatsApp and line number that i can make the reservation ?

    • Ryoko says:

      No.5 is the closest to Jumbo.
      They don’t have official line account and e-mail address.
      So, if you take reserve, please call 03-5689-8929. This is the official phone number.
      But sorry, I don’t know they understand English.
