Experience the authentic flavors of

Japanese cuisine

in the heart of Amsterdam

For over 30 years, chef Hiromichi Hosokawa has been welcoming guests from all over the world to his restaurant.

Hosokawa, which means “narrow river,” takes you on a journey to ancient Japan with its authentic Japanese cuisine. Experience the ultimate Chef’s Table experience as our chefs prepare your dishes with Japanese precision on the hot teppanyaki grill.

Welcome and be prepared to be amazed.


For over 30 years, we have been offering an authentic Japanese cuisine called teppanyaki. With carefully selected ingredients, our chefs open the doors to the world of a Japanese culinary ritual.

The teppanyaki concept (“teppan” – iron plate, “yaki” – grilled) is built on three key pillars: exceptionally fresh ingredients, high-quality equipment, and the skill of the chef.


In our authentic Japanese kitchen, we take pride in the high quality of our ingredients. A true star on our menu is our Wagyu.

Wagyu, which literally translates to “king of cows,” is globally renowned for its unparalleled marbling, flavor, and tenderness. We import our Wagyu beef directly from Japan, where it meets the highest quality standards.

The refined texture and delightful, almost buttery flavor of our Wagyu beef will provide your taste buds with an unforgettable umami experience. With every bite of our Wagyu beef, you’ll savor the rich umami notes that will elevate your culinary pleasure to new heights. We invite you to come and taste this delicacy.
