Very nice host and great food! Amazing Japanese traditional music! Do not miss it, very close to Sensoji temple.

I thought the Restaurant experience was worth a gold star. Service was excellent and the performance educational and fun. The owner and the two lady attendants were all very hospitable. Food wise I would say it was very average and simple for Kaiseki style dinner...More

We were delighted to find Kikko on our first night in Asakusa. The hosts could not have been more gracious. We walked in witwithout any reservation. It is a tiny oasis in big wonderful sprawling Tokyo.

Kodai and his restaurant were both amazing experiences. His staff are warm and inviting and took time to speak to us in English as well as let us practice our Japanese. The shamisen and singing performance was great. I can't recommend this experience enough. If...More

This was a wonderful evening. We sat at a traditional lowered table - shoes off of course. We were treated to a lovely Japanese menu and complemented it with saki. This is not just a restaurant but a dining experience. The hosts are friendly and...More

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
