I arrived 5 mins before opening and there's already a line up of 10 people. To avoid having to wait too long, I think don't go with more than a couple people, or be willing to be seated separately. Mostly local customers and servers are older Japanese women, so not sure they speak any English. As mentioned, the price is... More

Here you can taste real pork cutlets in Japanese style. On the table a menu with prices in place. Dishes are not super cheap, but very tasty, enough quantity, and traditional. Interior and exterior are also super nice, and most of Japanese would feel like staying grandmother’s house. At this moment, the most of guests are Japanese, include local or... 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.
