Shunpanro Tokyo has seven characteristic private rooms that reflect the Meiji and Taisho eras, including a room that imitates the Imperial Room at Shimonoseki Shunpanro, where the Emperor and Empress Showa stayed and a room that imitates the hall where the Sino-Japanese Peace Treaty was concluded. The rooms convey the history and mood unique to Shunpanro with varying capacities from two to 18 persons.
Shunpanro Tokyo is located on the site of the residence of Sugi Magoshichiro, a statesman from Yamaguchi Prefecture who was active from the late Edo period (Shimonoseki Campaign) to the Meiji and Taisho eras. Shunpanro Tokyo in Hirakawa-cho thus has had relationships with Shimonoseki over 100 years, linked by Takasugi Shinsaku, Ito Hirobumi, and Sugi Magoshichiro. Enjoy our dishes prepared with the taste of tradition and professional skills, in the private rooms that convey history from the late Edo period.
