The Amazing Sukiyaki at Asakusa Imahan

Today for lunch we wanted to venture out and try some legendary sukiyaki. The version we get in the states isn’t as refined as what you get in Tokyo. The quality of meat is higher, the service was impeccable, and having it dipped in raw eggs was supposed to be heavenly. I don’t think that last part would fly back home.
