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.

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
