Devil Craft Hamamatsucho
The best pizza in town?
The craft beer craze has been catching on in countries around the world and Japan, thanks in part to DevilCraft, is no exception. DevilCraft was opened in 2011 by a trio of Americans seeking to take the classic American pairing of beer and pizza to the next level. And they’ve succeeded with flying colors.
Devilcraft is a one-of-a-kind gem in the city. The menu is pizza filled out with standard pub appetizers, but the food quality stands head-and-shoulders above average. The restaurant’s specialty is Chicago-style pizzas that, though less than half the size of a traditional Chicago pie, are every bit as delicious and filling.

Take note that everyone is required to order at least one food and drink item each, but it’s all so delicious, you likely won’t have a problem doing that. If you’re really hungry, start off with some buffalo chicken wings or a basket of waffle fries. But if you’re unsure how far you can go, order a pizza first and add on as necessary. First time visitors should definitely order at least one Chicago-style pizza (if you can stop there) before trying anything else. Then, if you still have space, throw on a slice of their “Devil’s Decadent Cheesecake” or an apple pie.
The company recently opened a third shop in Gotanda, but all three locations are still usually packed everyday. You can chance a walk-up, but the wait could be as long as two hours, so either go right after opening or make a reservation to ensure yourself a timely entry.
