Booked this restaurant long in advance, it's easy to do it online. Otherwise you may need to queue for a long time. Cosy setting. Tranquil ambience. Lovely traditional food. Very reasonable price. Really enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend when you visit the beautiful Ueno Park.

This traditional japanese sukiyaki chicken restaurant provides both tasty chicken sukiyaki set and classic japanese garden ambience in Ueno park. Sitting on Tatami matt and chatting, dining and also drinking beers or sake are wonderful experience.

We walking in for lunch and had no idea what that place was. It turned out to be an amazing restaurant ! Traditional tatamis, beautiful presentation and tasty food. We were lucky to be served by a young lady who spoke fluently English and who...explained everything about all the dishes. The restaurant did accommodate the lunch to be wheat and sesame free, which was a treat ! Our 8 year daughter had a kids menu and loved it also.More

Wanted to go to this restaurant last time when in Tokyo, but didn't have time, so determine to go when in town this time round. Didn't have booking but walked straight in as soon as it opened. Traditional setting, sitting on tatami mat, staff very...friendly and helpful, can speak English, so quite foreigners friendly and not intimidating like some formal Japanese dinning. A few choices for lunch, all very good value. Food was delicious, highly recommended! Thanks for the hospitalityMore

I've been to Ueno Park dozens of times and never noticed this lovely restaurant before. I'm usually at one of the park's museums or focused on the spring cherry blossoms. But last October, we came across this wonderful building during a stroll in the center...of the park at lunch time. The structure dates back to 1875 and is surrounded by cherry trees. We went up the steps to the entrance, where a kimono-clad woman told us this area of the restaurant was already full. This part holds private tatami rooms and a small dining room. She referred us to the rustic tea room with a separate entrance at ground level. We got the last table here and noted that all the other diners were older Japanese women, engaged in quiet conversations. Big windows offered a nice woodsy view. Waitstaff wore beautiful kimonos and our waitress spoke English. She gave us menus, printed in English, offering traditional Japanese set menus. These ranged from 1680 Yen (about $16 U.S.) to 6800 Yen (about $63 U.S.). We ordered two different mid-range sets to share items. Both orders came beautifully presented on small dishes placed in woven baskets. I think an artist would have wanted to use both meals on the table as subjects in a still-life painting. Big fans of traditional Japanese cuisine, we could not have been happier with the delicacies and impeccable service. We were treated like royalty. What a lovely place for lunch! Innsyoutei stands about a 5-minute walk from the JR Ueno station. It also offers dinner at higher prices. Reservations recommended. The restaurant accepts only cash for payment.More

We went for Kaiseki type menus that is to say plenty of small dishes very traditional. This typical Japanese Cuisine is not too tasty at the beginning, I believe we need to accommodate first. Even though this was a great experience that I would recommend...to everybody. The service is simply perfect. One thing to know is that you can only pay by cash.More

Located in the Ueno Park, the evening view was fantastic. Structured in a traditional Japanese architecture, the restaurant has a quiescent Meiji/Taisho atmosphere.

The restaurant serves traditional kaiseki food. Although our menu was supposed to contain meat, we managed to get a fish-only option, which was absolutely amazing! I was also told they can prepare a fully vegetarian course if booked in advance. Beautiful location and very fine...dining for a great experience.More

We were invited by our local business partners to a dinner at This restaurant in Ueno and what an incredible experience. The history of the restaurant goes back to 1875. Innsyoutei means “Rhyme of the Pine Cottage” and when you go you will understand why...with the stunning setting in Ueno Park. The entire dining experience was outstanding. Highly recommend.More

This restaurant is 3 minutes walk from the Ueno Station (ueno park exit). Traditional Japanese building and very traditional Japanese food. Every food was carefully picked and carefully prepared. If you do not like the traditional Japanese flavors, this restaurant is not for you. But...if you can appreciate the simply looking yet complicated Japanese flavors, this restaurant will satisfy you and impress you - Japanese food in art form. This is a very popular restaurant, so you may want to make a reservation. We went for lunch and ended up waiting for an hour (we walked around the neighborhood while waiting though). We ordered the cheapest lunch box which was 1680yen ($16). It was totally worth it!More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old

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
