I'm not an expert when it comes to price but checking the beer price (800¥) I would say that the menu option proposed in english is 3180¥ per person... The restaurant is aged and clean. Original from the place. Classic. It could be an original...More

Very authentic restaurant with great food and service. The premium wagyu beef sukiyaki was divine. English menu was available and they try to communicate with you in english as much as they can.

One of my Japanese friends introduced me to this nice traditional restaurant. The menu is very simple, just two different grades of beef and you can order some extra vegetables, toppings, and so on. The restaurant is a very old traditional Japanese building which gives...More

Very good Wagyu beef. Old yet well maintained restaurant. Tatami setting is available. Their specialty is called Gyunabe which you cook Wagyu beef, vegetables and tofu in a iron skillet with soy based sauce. The average budget for lunch is 4000 yen per person.

Second night in Tokyo, went to this restaurant last night based on the review. The place is clean. The beef is good quality, very small menu. Nice experience, a bit pricy for the amount of food they serve. Don't think we will rush back!

I first came here more than 30 years ago, and although the neighborhood has changed, Yonekyu is still a lovely spot for a DIY sukiyaki meal sitting on the tatami mats on the floor next to a small but gorgeous Japanese garden. Service is warm...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
