Will you go to popular sightseeing place Sensoji Temple 浅草寺 in Asakusa 浅草 Tokyo?
There is a highly recommend Japanese style bar restaurant located 10 minutes walk from Asakusa 浅草 Station of subway.
Lots of tourists go sightseeing in Asakusa, and like to have a meal around Asakusa Station.
Most restaurants near the sightseeing spot price the food more expensively than the ones off the beaten track.
Actually, the recommended Japanese restaurant is outside the sightseeing area of Asakusa, so you can have really reasonably priced and delicious dinner there.
Motsuyaki INAGAKI Honten もつ焼 稲垣本店
I think this bar restaurant is still unknown by tourists.
(Japanese style bar restaurant is called IZAKAYA 居酒屋.)
Specialty and Menu
They specialize in grilled chicken on a skewer / grilled organ meat.
They also offer many kinds of Japanese food.
I forget the cost of a cover charge. Maybe It was 200 or 300 yen per person.
It includes a small appetizer. When you have a seat, the small appetizer is served.
First, please order a drink.

How to order
About skewer items 串物 Kushimono:
There are 2, 3 or 4 skewers per dish. Probably, you cannot order less than the numbers if you are a group. (When I go there alone, I will ask if...)
For this reason, bring your friends to order many kinds of skewers and share the dishes!
Salt or Barbecue Sauce:
When you are ordering skewer items, choose sauce たれ Tare or salt 塩 Shio.
