We made a real mess of our visit through ignorance. We had been told of the fabulous Japanese Okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes) but had no idea what it was all about. So off we went to this highly recommended restaurant which I certtainly recommend in turn. Before you go there, there are two things to know. You'll sit on the floor... More

Overtime we are in Asakusa we eat Okonomiyaki in this place. Having lived in Osaka we have tried quite a few Okonomiyaki and this place makes it right.

This is one of the best restaurants in Tokyo. Not only is the food excellent, watching the two young chefs cook on the griddle plate in front of you is first class entertainment. We even went back the following evening and we're not disappointed. If you like okonomiyaki, this is the place for you. They also have many other dishes... More

We stumbled on this place in the market area near the Sensoji Temple. The Okonomiyaki style of cooking and type of food was different to anything we have had before. There was an English menu and the food was excellent. We were able to eat at the "bar" where the chefs cook and I would highly recommend you try and... More

Description
Enjoy yourself in the bright ambiance. We use specially ordered teppan grill at the counter on the 1st floor. We grill your okonomiyaki right in front of your eye. Fluffy dough okonomiyaki is our specialty. The rich flavor from the chicken soup stock that has been cooked for three days is the secret for our vaunted taste. We also have a reasonably priced course menu.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
