This place is Kanoya Udon on its sign. The couple who runs the joint has been doing so for a long time. I met them on my first trip to Tokyo more than 10 years ago and they're still cranking along. Simple menu - tempura udon is the favorite item and super delicious. If you're staying in the neighborhood, go... More

My daughter and I visited Kanofuya. She told me that this was her favorite meal. I had the opportunity to meet the owner and speak to him. If you're in the Ueno area, you definitely want to take advantage of the Metro Pass and hop on the Hibiya Line.

The udon restaurant is also called Kanoya (hope it is the same). Good food, a bit pricy, very "cosy" room. We apprcieated very much that noone smoked. We have noticed that smoking is quite normal in smaller "non-touristic" restaurants. Not sure if smoking is prohibited though, so ask if you don't like it.

Tasty bowls of ramen, though a little pricier than usual. Good feed, and friendly service. Alcohol and English menu available.

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.
