Learned this restaurant from a popular Malaysian youtuber Ryuuu TV (studied and staying in Japan, now married a Japanese wife). Hesitated to try but still proceed with our food adventure after discussing with my family. No regret after that, the restaurant setting in two formats,...More

Been there first in 2001, then in 2018. Nothing had hanged in-between. In fact, I suspect nothing has changed in the 200-year old existence of this very traditional restaurant located in the hearth of Asakusa! Prefer the Japanese-style room, as this will give you a...More

Don't miss it. The service is excellent, friendly, and prompt, and the fish nabe is wonderful. In addition we had tofu dengaku, which also was very good. You can choose between sitting in chairs or on a matted area. Lovely experience.

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

If you enjoy old Japanese style, you should chose hole, or you can eat private room. I took friends from California and Scotland, they enjoyed very much.
