When you think Japanese Food what comes to mind is Ramen, Kobe Beef, Gyoza Etc. All really good! But you also have to go to this restaurant and have the pancake. It's in an old building. When you enter, you take off your shoes, and get seated on mats on the floor, at your table with a hot plate where... More

This restaurant was awesome! Great fun and tasty food, there can be a little bit of a wait if u go at peak times we waited 20 minutes to have our table but it is definitely worth it! Highly reccomend this place to anyone visiting Tokyo to get that Japanese fun experience

Located nearby Sensoji, this restaurant may not be appealing from the outside but you will be "wow" once you stepped in. First you have to take off your shoes and then the waitresses will guide you to your table. Each table are equipped with the hot plate where you will cook your own food afterwards. There are simple instructions drawn... More

A short hair lady staff (not the lady boss) with no smile at all, guide us to put our shoes inside a plastic bag due to the tatami style once we enter the front door step. We feel like not welcome either we were with young children or some others reason that I am unsure. She was impatient when she... More

The place (according to the owner) was built after the war and hasn't changed much since then. The outside is very traditional but the inside... amazing! And you would expect the food to be more expensive than in other places but it's not! Definitely recommended!

Outstanding meal, was a very welcoming place. Travelling with a 6 year old I had to ensure the place we were going wasn't going to a beer-swilling, rowdy place, and this place was perfect for us as we got there early.... it would be a perfect place if not traveling with a 6 year old to eat lots and drink...

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.
