Asakusa Monjayaki

Hi Chowhounds,
Going to drop an impossible question on all of you:
I am trying to remember the name of a restaurant I ate at in Asakusa about 11 years ago. It was a monjayaki place, full tatami. Seemed like it was famous. There are pictures of a famous writer (who may have been the owner?) from what appears to be 80 or so years ago.

Does that ring a bell with anyone?

    Hope that helps!

      I took a look at the restaurant web site and that looks like the place, thanks again!

        Funny, I walked by the shop on Monday and thought this may have been what you were looking for.

        Looks like a great place. Hope this is it!
