World-renowned UKIYO-E artist Hokusai might had eaten their food. One of the oldest restaurants in Tokyo Tamahide, who specializes in making chicken dishes, is founded in 1760, the same year of Hokusai's birth. Early in their history, they offered food only to requests by Daimyo, Japanese lords, and were very far from the public.
But the time changes. Tamahide is currently a very popular among the ordinary people, especially with Oyakodon (Chicken and Egg Bowl), which they make for the first time in Meiji period, and became one of the most major donburi dishes in Japan. Note that you have to stand in line to eat it during lunchtime, but your efforts soon will be rewarded with the Oyakodon.
