Great traditional place

It is a nice environment but not the fanciest. Service OK but not great. But very interesting menu well done in this 300 year old restaurant - note building not old

*** For vegetarians travelling to Tokyo **** The foods were very delicious and exquisitely made as many of other reviewers already mentioned. So let me tell you more about their tofu dishes for those who are vegetarian. The tofu dishes of Sasa-no-yuki are NOT vegetarian. I am Japanese and vegetarian and I confirmed this with the restaurant staff . The... More

Compared to the other top tofu restaurant, Ukai, the flavors did not stand up in comparison. We had a private room but it felt dark and dingy. There are three courses but the only difference seems to be volume rather than dishes: 5000, 6000, 7000. You will get very full on the 7000 yen course. Every dish is tofu; they... More

I had the set lunch for 2800 yen. I don't usually spend that much on a meal but it was entirely worth it, just make sure you're hungry or opt for the smaller set or à la carte options. The combination of quality of the ingredients, richness of taste yet simplicity are to be relished. Simplicity is not at all... More

Bea Sasa-no-Yuki opened its doors in the Edo period (more than 300 years ago), it still serves the same dishes as when the place first opened. You should seat overlooking the tiny garden and the koi pond. There are set meals that allow you to sample a broad range of tofu delicacies, like hiryuzu (tofu dumpling with vegetables), gomadofu (sesame... More

My girlfriend and I had lunch here. It was a cool Japanese experience where we took off our shoes before we ate the food sitting in the tatami dining room. We had a view out over their beautiful small garden where they had a small waterfall. The menu consisted primarily of various tofu dishes. We ate both a dish with... More

This venerable Tokyo restaurant offers so many tofu dishes -- even tofu ice cream -- that it boggles the mind. We've eaten dinner here many times during our visits to Tokyo over the years and are never disappointed. It is amazing what the chef is able to do with tofu and every dish is absolutely delicious. Sometimes it is impossible... More

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.
