I went there with my children and their friends, 8 to 15 y.o., most of them speaking both Japanese, but some either stronger in English, the others in Japanese. The puzzle was perfect, sufficiently hard, but not too much, so that we solved it only 3 seconds before the final gong ! What an excitement ! The puzzles are very... More

Visited here with some friends and completed the Runaway Bride challenge. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and would strongly recommend this to anyone. In fact some friends have since been and had similar glowing compliments.

We did the Samurai challenge. We have done escape rooms in several countries and this was one of the best. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They spoke English well which made it easy to understand what was going to happen. They location was easy to find and well signed. A great mornings entertainment.

Very friendly staff member who was able to speak in English. The puzzles were fun and some had traditional Japanese aspects which were very interesting (e.g. building a samurai armor). Great way to spend the afternoon!

The staff were very friendly, helpful, and able to speak English. There were free refreshments as well, which was nice. The escape rooms were sufficiently challenging, but lacking in size and immersive decoration.

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.
