Gonpachi’s interiors served as the backdrop for the iconic fight scene between The Bride (played by Uma Thurman) and Gogo Yubari (portrayed by Chiaki Kuriyama) in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” (2003). While people come for its pop culture significance (including international celebrities and world dignitaries), everyone stays for this izakaya’s delicious Japanese and Western-fusion fares. We suggest making a lunch reservation, since dinnertime ushers in more guests.
Sink your teeth in succulent Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉, Japanese for “grilled meat”) at Ooyodoya. The slivers of meat are expertly chosen and lovingly laid on the grill. The fires caress and lick at the steaks until they’re just the right state. After a long day, steak with girls is just what the doctor ordered.
Put on a brave face to survive the eerie gimmicks of horror-themed Yurei. To summon the Japanese ghost waitress, strike the Buddhist prayer bowl and wave the bloody severed hand. Get the Cremation Pyre Spareribs, which is brought on a sizzling plate, then doused with alcohol for a fiery show! Wear a costume during your visit (a wacky hat will do) and you might just charm the undead for some free dessert!
