It is very hot inside the restaurant but they have fans placed around to help cool the customers down. It was worth suffering the heat just for the experience! Was great fun to cook our own food and as a vegetarian it was great to...More

It was a 'scorcher' of an evening (32+ degrees C) in Tokyo and no airconditioning in the restaurant. They highlighted this at the entrance and when we arrived. Fans were strategically placed to help cool us down. We asked for vegetarian okonomiyaki and were offered...More

Super cool getting to eat one of Japans traditional foods. When you are seated there will be a grill built into your table top, like restaurants in US that do stir fry in front of you. That's where the similarities end. You will be given...More

As a vegetarian I was quite anxious about eating in Japan. However, we got to this restaurant and straight away they accommodated my dietary requirements. We were able to cook ourselves vegetarian food and drink beer and sake without any worries. The chef and front...More

I came here the day I got off the airplane in Japan. I was lucky that there wasn't a line. The reviews don't lie; this place lives up to the hype. I ordered two of the pancakes and the red bean crepe dessert. Very delicious...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

We took out a FairFx currency card in the UK, then withdrew cash at 7/11 ATMS all around Japan. Japan runs more on cash than the UK or Europe. In any case the prices are good value and won't break the bank.
