This Kaiseki Restaurant is in the beautiful Ueno Park Museum and recreation area of Tokyo in a charming, rustic traditional Japanese house. We had our own tatami room with view of a Japanese garden. Service be kimono-clad wait staff is very attentive and it is a cultural as much as a culinary experience.

We have been here a number of times and never fails to impress. Great kaiseki set meals in a peaceful setting. This time I had a meal based on tofu, it must have featured tofu a half dozen ways and each was excellent.

The restaurant is an elegant looking Japanese house next to a temple. You are invited to take off your shoes as you go in. The restaurant offers different type of set menus, consisting of small non-casual Japanese delicacies such as tofu skin, shrimps, devil toungue sashimi and so on. They also serve tea. The place is very peaceful and quiet,... More

Amazing food, very different for me from Brazil. I went there with my girlfriend and the service is excellent. The waitress specks English and they are very polite. A interesting point as a traditional Japanese restaurant you need let your shoes in the entrance.

Our hosts brought us to this hidden gem in Ueno park. If i heard right, the building was an old samurai's home. There is a small Shinto shrine beside it. The food has great and authentic. Sake poured freely. Our hosts graciously translated every thing in the printed course as it was in Kanji. The atmosphere and ambiance was very... More

We are vegetarian and were so pleased to have found this restaurant on our walk in Ueno Park, there was a queue of local people outside which was a good sign. we ordered the set vegetarian menu. We were not expecting this type of food, but then we didn't know what Buddhist temple food was before entering, so wrong exceptions.... More

I visited this restaurant for dinner after visited a museum in Ueno. It is located in Ueno Park. This appearance was the typically traditional Japanese restaurant. We sat at the counter. I looked the lush greenery of the park through the large windows. The interior was modern elements in traditional Japanese furniture. I ordered courses that contained sukiyaki and 8... More

Just to confuse things, this place is also referred to as "Innsyoutei" so if you see reviews for that, it's the same place. Innsyoutei is located right in the heart of Ueno Park and is a old house with several separate rooms, each with a handful of tables, so regardless of where you're dining, it feels quite private, which is...

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.
