A fine little restaurant, with a specialty in udon, a buckwheat noodle. Very popular, so reserve in advance if you can. Especially if you want to dine in the old storehouse, which was relocated here from the Taito area. Fine old neighborhood; the one area in Tokyo I actually enjoy visiting.

The wooden style interior design is so charming. The Japanese style low table (kotatsu) is very relaxing, and the garden view is beautiful. High quality tempura, and udon were delicious.

I've been here a couple of times. Both for dinner. They do have lunch, but especially on weekends, it is impossible to get in with a long line. For each visit, I had a reservation. If you can, make a reservation in the old aura, which is enclosed within the building. Its high-ceiling and the details are splendid. The food,... More

Restaurant located in lovely neighborhood. The interior is really nice and the food is really affordable. Udon noodles are a must try in Japan. They were really tasty and fresh. Don't hesitate to order one or two side dishes as they were really good.

This is a wonderful little spot. No so little actually. 2 rooms and a big beautiful garden. We came on a Sunday and had to wait about 45 minutes. It was worth it. Hot and cold udon with all kinds of possible additions like fish, kamoboko etc. Outstanding food. Very good service. A very special place about a five minute... More

As to what attracts so many people to this little restaurant. It's always packed with a line, but frankly, we ordered the classic udon there and I (as well as two friends) were all a little disappointed as to what the hype was about. It definitely tasted different from the classic udon, but not necessarily better. But great service +... More

I found it by chance and it's one of the best places in Tokyo to have a nice meal at the decent price. The menu is also in English. They have very good noodles, and many small dishes to choose from.

Yanasen is a wonderful part of Tokyo, a necessary slowdown from the bright lights and pace of the rest of the city. Lots of shrines, narrow alleyways, small shops and friendly people, perfect for a wander. The Nezu shrine is very pretty and a must see in April for the azaleas. Not far from the shrine is Kamachiku, a lovely... More

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.
