I was on my own, strolling through the quiet Yanaka and admiring the old historic town. By coincidence I found this little sushi gem. I was the only tourist in there and waited about half an hour to even get in. But it was totally worth it. I sat on the "bar", the sushi cook was preparing my sushi right... More

It's in old and nostalgic Yanaka/Sendagi area across the street from a sento; as such it serves a classical Edo-mae sushi, nothing less, nothing more. Which is perfect, and it specializes in Anago-zushi. We were made happy men after a bottle of slightly bitter beer and mellow and filling conger-eel sushi, perhaps the best ones we've eaten. They also serve... More

Now at the end of my trip through Japan I looked this place up to leave a review. The sushi we are here was probably the best we had during our trip through Japan. It is a tiny place, a little bit difficult to find and a bit our of the way, but locating this place is well worth the... More

I always visit this restaurant whenever I have their chance to go to Tokyo. It is located next to the Sendagi Station and 10 minutes by walking from Nippori Station. This restaurant has a menu, but I always order sushi by piece. The chef doesn't speak much English, but he has a sushi book and you can always point at... More

My Japanese friend who lives in Yanaka took me to this Sushi restaurant, which is famous for their anago-sushi. Anago is a family of eel. We sat at the sushi counter and ordered what we wanted to eat. I never liked anago before, but their anago is cooked in a special sauce. So it's very tender and melts in your... More

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.
