Yamachan – Wings in Hachioji

I have visited Yamachan restaurant in Hachioji three times now.  We trained from Fussa, Higashi Fussa, and Akishima and all routes took about 35 minutes to get to Hachioji station once on the train.  The restaurant is then a short walk from Hachioji station.  I am picky about my chicken so I had low expectations on my first visit.  I ordered the edamame and another appetizer and decided I would try just one of the wings.  That quickly turned into ordering more for the table.  The wings are a little spicy with a hint of sweetness and you cannot eat just one.  With each visit I ate a little more and everyone who came agreed they were the best they’ve had in Japan.  The wings are sold in servings of 5 for Y450.  We easily finished 5 servings (25 wings) split between two people.  The menu is large so you can find something for everyone, including kids.  We took our 5 and 9 year old on our last visit and they enjoyed wings, french fries, fried rice, and chicken nuggets.  We have never made a reservation but we did wait over an hour on a Friday night without one.  Reservations on-line must be made at least one week out.  On a weeknight we were able to walk in around 6:00pm.  The only negative is it is a smoking establishment.  The later you stay, the smokier it gets so try to go early if you want to take the kids. There is also a large multi-level Don Q with a Daiso on top nearby if you want to do a little shopping while you are in the area.  – Angela Vaillant, October 2018
