This is a well known Unagi (Grilled Eel) restaurant in the Asakusa area, right on Kukusai Dori Street. The restaurant is usually crowded and you may have to wait 30 minutes to get in. Remember to write your name and the number of guests on...More

Go early (the place opens at 11) to avoid a queue! We went at 11.30 and waited for about half an hr. We tried the unagi in the rice pot, both sauce and salt version. I prefer the sauce version as it brings out the...More

While visiting the Asakuba area, we made a point to eat at Unatetsu for its eel. The menu offers two types of eel over rice: sauce (typical) and salt. You can have an individual serving of each or a bigger bowl for several people. We...More

Delicious lunch. We took the 0.8 eel menu. We didn't have to wait, we were seated when we arrived (around 3 pm). The service is ok and there's an English menu.

The eel was excellent. English menu and instructions are provided on how to best enjoy your meal. The salt eel was the highlight! Service was very good and I didn't experience any rudeness from the staff. Highly recommended.

Decided to visit this restaurant on the way to Sensouji Temple as we saw a reliably large queue forming outside waiting to get the lunch set which seemed very good value for what was on offer. After queueing for around 20 minutes we were politely...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
