Couldn't be more Japanese!

Loved this place. The building is traditional and atmospheric and full of locals. The food is limited to a couple of delicious dishes. The speciality is a dish of little fish cooked on your own charcoal burner. Wash it down with a frozen sake, yum! Our evening was made really special by a local... read more

I'm always looking for unusual traditional cuisines, and this restaurant was perfect. They serve loach in traditional Edo fashion, sauteed over charcoal at your table. There are various formats: One in egg, one with whole small fish, one with larger filleted fish. They were all excellent. A nice accompaniment was hone sembei (deep fried crispy bones.) It was the first... More

There's usually a queue, even on weekdays and I don't think they take reservations, but wait it out because it's definitely worth it. It's a shoes-off, cushions-for-seats, tatami-mat establishment that feels rowdy, creaky and old-worldly. I can't remember if there's an English menu or if the staff speak English, but I do remember not caring either way. It was the... More

A loach is a special fish. The first person will be surprised. I can enjoy the full-scale cooking from Japanese old times. This restaurant is recommended if I enjoy this cooking willingly.

It was our second day in Tokyo and the first experience of traditional restaurant, and this one was just perfect for the first try. Traditional decorations, getting off shoes, sitting on the floor, small low tables, waitresses in yukata and local public - that's all I wanted for this first visit and I got it all. The fish was tasty,... More

Lured by the great reviews on tripadvisor, we walked a considerable distance along the river and into the Dojo 'hood to enjoy his restaurant. It looks delightful on the outside, and the glimpse we got of the inside was nice, if very brightly lit. (Hello, 200 years ago they used oil lamps and candles, not fluorescents.) So it gets a...

First of all, I should say that I'm Garlicmike's buddy referred to in his review. I think I would echo his sentiments. The food was quite good and enjoyable, although for me there were other Japanese dishes I enjoyed more while we were in Tokyo from a flavor perspective. The whole experience, however, was well worth the visit and the... More

Frankly, our wives didn't like Japanese cuisine at all. My buddy and I decided on a guy's night out and choose to dine here because of the "old Japanese" descriptions we found here on Tripadvisor. If you want to experience the "real deal", try this place. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You sit on cushions on the floor, indulge in... More

We loved Taito because of its ancient and traditional remaining. And eating at an old and traditional restaurant like Komagata Dozeu was unmissable while in Tokyo. We loved the servers dressing in Kimono and local food. We took a risk in ordering eels set and Dojo, which were well-known dishes here. Neither my boyfriend nor I could eat eels! And...beyon...

One of my husband's Japanese co-worker's took us for lunch here. It was great to experience such an old and traditional place to eat. I loved sitting on the floor in a communal eating space. The restaurant is famous for a small eel-like fish called Dojo, and while I'm not a terribly adventurous eater, it was an experience to try.... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
