Great place to go for unagi rice especially if visiting sensoji temple because it's nearby. Try to order the small serving because the other stuff are worth trying, eel soup and gizzard skewer.

While many traditional eel restaurants went down in taste, this place is still great with eel just juicy and soft. First floor is small and though there is a second floor, I don't know how large. Entrance is a sliding door which is quite unusual these days. The place is near Asakusa nakamise so it is a great place to... More

When we arrived to our hotel, we notices a small queue in front of the building opposite. It was Koyanagi which seems to be extremely popular all day, both as lunch and dinner restaurant.

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.
