Found this little restaurant from trip advisor and was not disappointed. The place was fully reserved however they managed to make room for 2 of us. We were treated to a traditional Japanese banjo session by the owner and his staff, after that our bento...More

Popped into this little restaurant to try it out having looked online. For lunch they offer either a single or double bento box, we went for the double, and weren’t disappointed. Just enough to satisfy the hunger pangs, but not to the point of being...More

Great evening at a traditional Japanese restaurant. We walked in without a reservation to be warmly greeted by the owner, who spoke very good English. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and the entertainment by the owner and his son on the...More

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
