Restaurants & Cafés


It’s been 46 years since the Tokaido Shinkasen opened in 1964, and 47 years since Niagara curry house opened in 1963. In line with the words ‘Tetsudo Mudo no Mise’ (or, ‘Shop with a Railway Feeling’) displayed above the entrance, the interior is jam-packed full of railway-related memorabilia. Many of the items you’ll find here really do date back to when the restaurant first opened, with a vast collection of destination and station nameplates decorating the interior from wall to wall. By the entrance, you’ll find a meal ticket vending machine offering a number of items including a cho-tokkyu (super express) spicy menu (based on an orthodox Japanese-style curry) and a variety of different topping options such as hamburger, katsu (deep fried pork cutlet), and ebi-furai (deep fried prawn). Customers sitting at one of the restaurant’s passenger-car-style seats (from actual trains) have their order delivered via an entertaining model railway delivery system. Plus, there’s also a particularly interesting restaurant manager (or should that be ‘station manager’?) who wears a railway cap.
