A nice small hut were you make your own Okonomiyaki while sitting on the floor. The Okonomiyaki is only ok, but the experience was good.

Japanese style okonomiyaki restaurant, where you can find several different types of okonomiyaki, even the sweet ones! Ingredients are genuine, the atmosphere original and relaxing, the owners are sweet and gentle. The sake was incredible. Highly recommended.

We arrive just 5 minutes before they opened so we didn’t have to wait to be seated. They had English menus and the staff was very friendly. They jumped in and helped us cook. The food was delicious!

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.
