One of the most indispensable sightseeing locations in Tokyo is "Tokyo Skytree." The tower is right outside of Skytree Station, just one stop from Asakusa Station on the Tokyo Skytree Line.
Surrounding the 634-meter-tall Tokyo Skytree are a variety of shops and facilities, plenty to pack into a full day of sightseeing.
This time we will be introducing our recommended restaurants around Tokyo Skytree.

1. Yakitori Omino

"Yakitori Omino" is a popular yakitori restaurant in Yokohama, located about a 3-minute walk from Oshiage Station.
It's a newly opened restaurant from the owner-chef of one of Japan's most highly praised restaurants, "Torishiki."
Its serving style is the same as "Torishiki": guests are given the chef's recommended skewers one after the other until the guest tells them to stop.
You can enjoy as many delicious yakitori skewers as your heart desires here, from the tasty staples like tsukune, heart, and breast meat to rarer cuts like back liver, hock, and Achilles tendon.
Their liquor lineup is also quite robust, with great selections of beer, sake, shochu, and champagne.
Be sure to enjoy this delicious yakitori alongside a drink of your choice!

5. Yamasuke

This izakaya's claim to fame is the marriage between its hand-made soba, made in-house, and its sake.
Its signature soba dishes include the classic "Seiro," served on a wicker tray, as well as others like "Black Soba," made with coarsely ground buckwheat, and "Aged Soba" that has rested for several days.
We recommend their omakase (chef's choice) courses, priced at 3,800, 5,800, and 7,800 yen.
Their variety of dishes made with fresh seafood, purchased daily by the owner at Tsukiji Market, pair amazingly well with sake.
The noodles used in all their courses are, of course, their Japanese soba noodles, the pride and joy of "Yamasuke."
Slurp up these firm and delicious noodles to your heart's content, then continue on with your sightseeing around Tokyo Skytree with a full stomach and happy heart!

This restaurant is located less than 10 minutes on foot from Asakusa Station. "Restaurant Azuma" is a yoshoku (western-style food) restaurant with a long and honorable history, having first opened in 1913 (2nd year of the Taisho Period).
It is famous not only for its food, but also its dedication to good service.
Their most popular dish is their "Sendai Sosaku Omurice (3500 yen)," a mindblowingly delicious combination of chicken rice and half-cooked egg!
Their show of bringing out the freshly-cooked eggs to cover the rice before your eyes is truly a fun experience.

8. Unazen

This unagi specialty restaurant is located right in front of Honjo-Azumabashi Station off the Toei Asakusa line.
Their pride-and-joy kabayaki (unagi eel broiled in sauce), prepped with a quick steam before being fragrantly broiled over charcoal, is perfectly prepared to a luxuriously fluffy finish.
The lightly sweetened tare sauce pairs beautifully with the unagi's flavors, sure to stoke your appetite so much that you finish every last grain of rice.
Their unaju, unagi served over rice in a lacquered box, is made over the course of an hour, starting with the prepping of the eel.
We recommend visiting before or after your sightseeing with plenty of time to spare.
