Komori Yakitori Grilled Chicken

A long-established restaurant for Nagato's soulfood, grilled "yakitori" chicken! Fresh from Nagato's poultry farms.

Known to those in the know, Nagato is actually quite famous as a "yakitori city." It is even said that Nagato has the greatest number of yakitori restaurants per 10,000 residents in Japan. Of these, Komori Yakitori is the oldest shop in Nagato, which has a history of 60 years since its construction. Passing through the short curtain draped across its front, you'll find that the shop interior has only counter seats. Behind the counter, the mistress of the establishment uses her 40 years of experience to skillfully grill each skewer of chicken.
The dish you need to try here is it's most simple chicken meat. The meat is as juicy as you would expect from chicken brought in fresh each morning, and a delicious experience unique to a land where chickens are raised. Komori Yakitori opens at 2 p.m. Please consider stopping by once on an empty stomach.
Each September, the choicest yakitori shops gather here from all over the country for Nagato's "Yakitorimplics."
