I think it is geared towards tourists, which means it's probably overpriced, but they are so nice and welcoming and you get a set Japanese meal to test out new flavors. Entertainment is just ok, but interesting to see Japanese guitar-like instruments in use. Good respite from activity and crowds around shrine. Need a reservation.

I reserved a table for dinner a few weeks before our trip to Japan because I knew we couldn't miss the experience of Kikko. It was by far the most expensive meal we ate and completely worth it. Every course was gorgeous, seasonal, and delicious. A few things were a bit scary for a Westerner like me, but on the... More

We arrived at 7:30 pm our first attempt to go here however we were turned away because they specially closed early just that day (at 6pm). We eagerly came back the next night around 6:30 pm but when were greeted they seemed confused why we had come and not made a reservation and it was a very unwelcoming feeling so... More

On this return visit to Japan, we decided to start out in Tokyo with a walking tour of Asakusa under a beautiful fall day. Fortunately we stopped by Kikko’s to have lunch after visiting the Senso-Ji temple.We were greeted by the owner and promptly seated and our lunch menu had two options of Kaiseki which consists of several small traditional...

I went with my wife and daughter after visiting the Senso-ji temple. The food was a great selection of traditional items. There was also a performance by two traditional musicians. Well worth the visit.

Kikko is on the expensive side (our bill came to about $160 for two people with no alcohol) but absolutely a worthwhile experience! We had the enishi course, which consisted of 8 or 9 wildly different dishes - everything from miso soup to baked apples with lemon meringue to every type of seafood imaginable. The taste pairings (sweet and vinegary,... More

We decided to book a lunch at this place after reading all the wonderful reviews about it. And we were not disappointed. We were the only 2 guests when we arrived at 1145h, which was a surprise, and we were the only 2 guests during the first performance at 1215h. The meal was very good and the 15-min performance by...

We wandered in when this restaurant caught our eye from the road. At first, the communication was difficult, but after we went in and sat down, it was just lovely. The food was presented beautifully in eight small courses. The fish was so fresh and all of the food was delicious. The best part was the owner and staff played... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at Kikko last night. We had chosen the Musubi dinner which consisted of 10 small courses which were both beautifully presented and delicious! The owner greeted us warmly at the door and ushered us to our table. Part way through the meal he gave us a demonstration of traditional Japanese music and song, what... More

Ate lunch and very much enjoyed the traditional food and musical performance by the staff with string instruments I believe are called Shamisen. Service was great and owner told us they have been there for over 50 years. If you like traditional Japanese food and music I would highly recommend visiting during a show time. As a side note they... 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.
