I made a reservation by email for lunch and when I got there the owners double checked that I was ok with the menu I had selected. Being overly enthusiastic about trying kaiseki, I had ordered the 2 layer bento box. It turned out to...More

I first walked by Kikko during my previous trip to Tokyo and was intrigued by the juxtaposition of the old house and the bustling street. Somehow, I couldn't forget about it and reserved a table for my family during recent stay in Asakusa. It was...More

Surprise, surprise! In one of the most crowded, most touristy places of Tokyo, there is this totally un-touristic, down-to-earth, traditional restaurant that is actually more of a performance hall :-) Their location is a small Japanese wooden house. Very old school, very charming and very...More

Very good Japanese cooking with a few tourists. Tradional Japanese music by the owner himself. For our group of Dutch visitors he played our national anthem, Wilhelmus on his Japanese guitar. Try it!

We were looking very much forward to eating there during our various stays in Asakusa and Ueno. The first time we arrived shortly before 20h00 since Trip Advisor indicated the restaurant was opened till 21h00. We were told we could not eat as the restaurant...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
