Great experience making your own okonomiyaki. We've had our fair share in Kyoto, Osaka and Tokyo and this place was by far the best! Most places have had too much sauce, but since this is DIY, add sauce to your pleasinggg :) They were also...More

Was a great experience for kids to cook on the flat top grill in front of us. Note, it was a very hot day and even hotter inside sitting by the grill. We didn't think the food was especially great, as was primarily ingredients, which...More

When you dine you are asked to sit on the floor which is very neat. The Okonomiyaki are like pancakes which you cook yourself. The waitress was very helpful as she guided my clumsy hands through the steps. It was a bit of fun, and...More

You start by taking off your shoes and being seated at a hot plate-table. if you are a foreigner, they will gladly help you throughout the whole cooking process. The food was good and staff were very friendly.

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

We took out a FairFx currency card in the UK, then withdrew cash at 7/11 ATMS all around Japan. Japan runs more on cash than the UK or Europe. In any case the prices are good value and won't break the bank.
Hi, anybody knows the opening and closing hours?
