First 'Bar' in Japan

When you visit Asakusa or Sensou-ji, this is the must place to take a break from sight seeing. First floor is a bar but second floor is a restaurant that serves westernised Japanese food. Denki Bran is also served on second floor so you enjoy Denki Bran and your family can enjoy other non... read more

A very nice and cozy place for a foreign traveler who wants a warm relaxing start in the late morning in cool weather of December. I liked the atmosphere , the good-looking old friends drinking their brandy and wine in the morning of weekend. You can order food as well, we had home fried potatoes. After all take a ride... More

LOVE this place. Where else can a chain-smoking hyperbaric chamber salesman call your friend "cute like a baby" and then buy you two some free pork skewers (this really happened to us). Super communal, friendly atmosphere here, even if the average age of the crowd is like, 65 years old. If you're a foreigner, show up here and people will... More

I don't have to say much in this review since someone else wrote an extensive review already on tripadvisor, but I can say that I agree with that reviewer for the most part. This place is original, has class, and has inexpensive brandy. I went there on four occasions and each time was welcomed to sit at a table. The... More

When you enter the hallowed ground floor of Asakusa's famous Kamiya Bar it is (at first) difficult to categorize it. Is it a Japanese community hall or have I just stepped back in time? Seasoned visitors will know immediately to what I'm alluding to. But for the uninitiated, please let me explain. Once you pass through the entrance you'll see... 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.
