The old three-storied wooden building in the picture, built in 1912, survived the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 and the repeated air raid in Tokyo in 1945. This originally was a shop dealing in the protective leather covers on clogs though, is now used as a "kushiage" deep-fried skewers restaurant of old style. Due to the road expansion work, part of the original building was obliged to be scrapped , and it was entirely renovated to best fit to be a Japanese restaurant at the same time. Kushiage food is very popular in Osaka, but this is one of the rare kushiage restaurants in Tokyo.
