My partner and I (vegetarian Australians, pescetarian when travelling) had dinner here after visiting the museums. This place was really charming. Hard to pick from the outside (no sign in English) but we were greeted by a friendly doorman. The staff were lovely and spoke some English. We were seated in a traditional tatami style and had the 2800yen 9-course... More

We'd read about this place in our guidebook, and initially had some trouble working out a route from Tokyo National Museum. However 20 minutes later we found ourselves outside its door, and a member of staff greeted us confirming we'd found the right place. Inside was very traditional, no shoes allowed, and we were seated next to the window with... More

My husband and I each ordered the 9 course lunch tasting menu (2,800 yen each), and it was amazing. I love tofu and eat it regularly at home, but my husband is normally not a fan. He only went with me to make me happy, but he ended up loving the dishes as much as I did. The variety of... More

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

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.
