For starters, I'm not a vegetarian. I've had tofu dishes that I've enjoyed, but generally find tofu to be food that adds little to a meal. So it was eye-opening to see what tofu can do in the right hands. My wife and I got the set lunch menus, which included multiple courses of tofu prepared in about a dozen... More

We tried the tasting menu and it was great. Tofu in different shapes and tastes, worth the detour from the museum!

This restaurant specialises in tofu - there was tofu in every dish including the ice cream. Some of it was delicious - some of it took some getting used to (especially for this western palette). The restaurant is very historic and the setting (private room) was very delightful. Also loved the sparkling sake.

It's been a great fun for me to take my overseas friends to this 320-year old Japanese restaurant, and share the joy with them. Their unique experience starts at the entrance hall as soon as they step in. "Gesoku-ban" a dedicated shoe manager normally seen at an expensive Japanese dinning house, kindly asks them to take off their shoes, and... More

The basic three-course set menu includes tofu. For bigger appetites, there's also an eight-course banquet. Good service. Starting from around Y4200 for dinner.

So, this restaurant is 100+ years old and serves mostly tofu. So, every dish has some sort of tofu in it. We loved the experience since we had some veg only folks in our group. it was a really cozy environment with great service. the pre-set tofu meal was also really good all over.

Very good indeed. We went for lunch, and had the set menu. (I think the mid-sized one). I'm vegetarian (trying to be vegan as much as I can). All the dishes were a little taste journey of deliciousness. Very calm inside. The whole experience was exceptional. Can be difficult to find from the outside so maybe check out the website... More

My partner and I (vegetarian Australians, pescetarian when travelling) had dinner here after visiting the museums. This place was really charming. Hard to pick from the outside (no sign in English) but we were greeted by a friendly doorman. The staff were lovely and spoke some English. We were seated in a traditional tatami style and had the 2800yen 9-course... More

We'd read about this place in our guidebook, and initially had some trouble working out a route from Tokyo National Museum. However 20 minutes later we found ourselves outside its door, and a member of staff greeted us confirming we'd found the right place. Inside was very traditional, no shoes allowed, and we were seated next to the window with... 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.
