We had heard about Mokuhankan through some friends. I have three kids; the kids and my parents even had a great time. It was the front end of our vacation and it was a nice way to start. It's a close walk to Asakusa temples...More

Overall good experience as we came away with some nice prints as momentos of our trip. However I expected more in terms of having the workshop guide giving us at least some overview of the history behind this type of craft, different styles, etc. Instead...More

Although I can appreciate the passion for his craft there was no need for the printmaker to have an outburst and tantrum at my whole family and telling the assistants to only help the two doing it like he said. Even when I asked questions...More

Well, here we are with our worst-ever review, one that I regret, but can’t deny ... It’s our job in these events to match our approach to the people who show up, and in this case I struggled from the beginning to effectively communicate with...More

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
