This is a very traditional restaurant, you sit on cushions and the waiters take their time to explain the process to you (like mixing the dough and grilling it), very worth your time and it’s delicious. It’s very hot inside though but they provide fans

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

Hi, they’re made with egg but I cannot tell if there is eggless option. I’d say no, to be honest (looking at the menu) but maybe there are some hidden options.
