I guess my expectations were high because of all the great reviews, but I found their beef just so-so. I mean it was good, but nothing extraordinary, really. A great experience though to cook your own sukiyaki.

We chose to dine here as recommended by a Japanese friend, and it definitely did not disappoint. We arrived 20 minutes before the restaurant opened and there was already a queue outside. Great sukiyaki experience; the staff will show you the correct way to prepare...More

We walked pass Asakusa Imahan a few times and decided to try our luck for lunch. The price is good and the food is awesome. The service is great too (all services in Japan are good, what am i talking about?:))

I have eaten shabu shabu many times in the 16 years years I have lived in Japan and Asakusa Imahan is the best I have eaten. The beef itself is perfect and the quality of the ingredients otherwise is equally excellent. Great for large groups....More

Imahan-Bekkan is close to Senso-ji temple. The restaurant is Japanese traditional appearance. It's so beautiful. I went to the restaurant with my family. The service staff was very kind to my daughters. Imahan speciality SUKIYAKI was deifinitely one of the best I've ever had.

Served while sitting on the floor by a lady dressed in traditional kimono was great. Food was sensational (although not sure about the raw egg!) and I thought well priced for the quality. Not sure worth the trip all the way of staying in shibuya,...More

Excellent service & a bit pricey. Kobe beef shabu-shabu & gozen was amazing. Artful and creative presentation, more food than we could eat and exotic variety. Kids were given nice goodie bags as souveniers.

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
