Asano (tempura, sashimi, etc.) in Yanaka (Tokyo, Japan)

Back in 2007 I returned to Japan for the first time after a nearly 20 year absence. On our second night we ate at a Izakaya near our hotel called Asano (浅野 or あさの). When we lived in Japan in 2009 and 2010 we ate there again. But today’s photos come from last summer when I enjoyed my third meal there.

The owner is very friendly. He remembered me from each of my prior visits like any good Izakaya proprietor would.

Hopefully I’ll get the chance to partake again in the not-too-distant future.
