While there are many types of shigoto, stewing may be the test of a sushi skill. Stewing—what a strange concept it must be to the raw sushi foodies, yet nimono (stewed ingredients) is a traditional method of preparing sea eel, clam, squid, octopus and scallop...More

Loved the small restaurant where all the guest can watch the chefs prepare the food. There was no wine on the menu, but just ask for it. Would love to go again.

We arrive a 7pm and order the standard menu with 5 starters and 10 sushi. The starters are nice but nothing extraordinary. The big problem is the sushi. Apparently this restaurant waits until all guests have arrived until they start making sushi. By 8.30pm they...More

I be back. Been to many sushi joints all over Japan and always looking for newer places to venture. You will soon realise that most restaurants in Tokyo (example just had dinner @ sushi Iwa @ 55,000y) have increased their prices as more tourists travel...More

Edo style sushi is a little bit different from current sushi. Today sushi is cooked with fresh fish and vinegared rice, but Edo sushi is held with rice mixed with red vinegar and processed fish. Here you can eat genuine Edo sushi. All sushi was...More

I think probably one of the first time I give a restaurant a full 5/5 on a first visit. I know I usually rate down until I visit a particular restaurant again. But this restaurant is an exception. We opted for 15 pieces of sushis...More

This restaurant is a jewel. We are kind of used to sushi restaurant but this was the best place we went ever. First, atmosphere is fantastic: both casual and professional. Staff is really very friendly and takes time to explain all the dishes. Regarding food...More

Our last night in Tokyo we decided to ask our hotel for a recommendation for a restaurant (mainly due to lack of planning on our part). It was a Saturday night and there was only one other couple in the restaurant (it seats about 11...More

A traditional sushi experience in Asakusa. Simple, fresh and delicious. Seated at the bar, in front of the chef who's preparing every item straight in front of you with stunning dexterity. The team is very friendly as well as the other customers who were there...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
