After the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the area of Koenji experienced an influx of merchants and laborers after the major destruction of downtown Tokyo. At the time, local farmers decided to subdivide their land for new entrants for a cheap price. Koenji therefore became a popular area thanks to its various open air markets, stores and cheap but delicious restaurants. Guranma, located in the midsts of this lively town offers an atypical cuisine in Tokyo; the Obanzai, an a la carte of homemade food specific to Kyoto.
