This place is all about Tofu. It's not very central located in Tokyo but yet easy to find. The restaurant is rather traditional (no shoes, sitting on the floor...). They had a veg and non veg lunch menu for a decent price. If you like...More

My girlfriend and I loved this unassuming gem. We ordered the 2800¥ set lunch menu to share, to which we were told that we were required to order one additional item off the menu. The food was delicious and filling (even sharing the set menu),...More

Chose this restaurant as some friends were staying nearby. It's located in a slightly decaying part of the city next to a concrete bridge over a main road. The décor is very dated and grubby with threadbare carpets that could indeed date back to the...More

We loved it - an old style (the restaurant is over 100-years old) tofu restaurant. They prepared tofu in ways that I never imagined, and each course was different and delicious. We had lunch here, and that worked out really well - it was kind...More

The tofu here is so fresh and varied, it has nothing in common with the tofu we buy in Canada. It opens up a whole new world of tofu-based meals and tofu variations. My girlfriend who wants to learn to cook better tofu was very...More

This would appear to be the world's premier tofu restaurant and the food was certainly both interesting and different. It was also plentiful, the larger tasting menu was rather more tofu than most would comfortably manage I suspect. I was new to tofu haute cuisine...More

A quiet, charming restaurant with set menus featuring tofu in ways you never imagined, from appetizers, to soup, to entrée and even ice cream! Each dish is thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented and delicious. You'll never see tofu the same again. You have a choice...More

For starters, I'm not a vegetarian. I've had tofu dishes that I've enjoyed, but generally find tofu to be food that adds little to a meal. So it was eye-opening to see what tofu can do in the right hands. My wife and I got...More

We tried the tasting menu and it was great. Tofu in different shapes and tastes, worth the detour from the museum!

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
