Okonomiyaki in Asakusa & Sumida River

Sometarō is a fun and funky place to try okonomiyaki (savoury Japanese-style pancakes filled with meat, seafood and vegetables that you cook yourself). This historic, vine-covered house is a friendly spot where the menu includes a how-to guide for novice cooks. Tatami seating; cash only. If it closes, it's often on a Tuesday or a Wednesday.
