Good start to the day. Great coffee, pancakes. Eating with locals. Not a huge place. Listen out for the music they play. We were in fits when they started playing “Baa BaaBlack sheep” the nursery rhyme with a crooning voice.
This is close to Bunka Hostel, quick food when in a hurry. Lots of other restaurants around also. Not much seating space but enough for a few friends. Great coffee and fries.
Date of visit: May 2016
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.
