Long-Standing Local Business
The founder, who was also the first chef, came over from Taiwan at the age of 15—bringing the authentic flavors of Chinese cuisine with him. Now, more than 60 years later, our third-generation chef continues to serve our loyal customers the same original menu items as well as some of his own original recipes.
Be sure to get the fried chicken wings, a favorite among our regulars, and our traditional gyoza. Only the mother of the shop’s second-generation owner can make the flavorful dipping sauce for these dumplings, a family recipe.
Another thing that we are also famous for are our portions and prices. You will definitely get your fill without having to empty your wallet.

Modern and Stylish Restaurant,
9-Minute Walk from Toyooka Station
Rakuyuken is located about 700m from the West Exit of Toyooka Station.
The restaurant has a modern and stylish interior. Three large, round dining tables are set in the front area of the establishment. Each table has a small turntable (Lazy Susan) located in the middle, making it easier to share and pass dishes around. From these tables you can see into the open kitchen, while there are also some counter seats that put you right in front of the chef.
At the back of the restaurant is one private room and tables with floor seating. Rolled curtains drape from the ceiling, dividing the seating areas in the back. These curtains can easily be rolled up to make room for larger groups. You can walk along the glass floor and see a beautiful rock garden below your feet.
The spacious area in the back can be reserved ahead of time for lunch, dinner, or parties. Rakuyuken is a popular spot for family dinners and get-togethers on the weekends, so you may want to consider calling ahead of time and reserving a table if you plan on going during the dinner rush hour. Please note that reservations are taken over the phone in Japanese only.
