We just happened on this place as our stomachs were rumbling, and yakitori was on our list of foods to try while in Japan. Are we sure glad we did! First of all, the food was superb - great meat quality and just the right amount of smoke and spice. The service was great as well. What will stay with... More

Awesome place out of a William Gibson novel - super legit place with a real "local joint" feeling serving tons of different things, notably a variety of different types of Yakitori. The spicy miso and garlic miso yakitori skewers in particular were great. And everything is happening under some train tracks. Yeah. It's awesome.

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.
