  • This is a tea house located in the heart of the old town attractions "YuYuan", with the hustle and bustle of Asakusa. I think the ingenuous, fewer holidays and Yu Yuan garden in nowhere very crowded, so only one spot. I heard that not torn down because once upon a time, in a private residence, then through concession period still remain. Up to the second floor, please try Kenyans history while enjoying the view. Even if Chinese tea, pouring hot water over and over as you like with the cheese comes out free of charge so you can relax.
