Tokyo has very few Japanese restaurants that are bad. Even the little Soba shop in the railway station serves good food. With Sushi, it is hard to fake. Fresh cut sushi has a definite sheen that cannot be duplicated. When sushi is served, the sheen...More

I still enjoy this place, although as others have said it is not what it once was. Back then, there were long lines waiting to get in. Now, they often have someone in front trying to bring people in. The service is still good, and...More

We were huge fans of the 'old' megurobito when they were located on orange street... This was the one place we will never miss when we visit Tokyo n have recommended countless friends... Sadly, the quality has since deteriorated since they moved to their current...More

After reading the reviews here, went with very high expectations, but were sorely disappointed. We went to the one on Nakamise street. To be fair we went way after lunch time, at 3pm, and there were only 2 more people in the restaurant. The nigiri...More

The food is very good and the counter is low and seats are not too tight as you may experience in other restaurants in Tokyo. The tables are for 4 and limited availability. There are the usual recipies but you can order and get it...More

Magurobito it's a kaiten sushi restaurant (which can be translated in "conveyor belt restaurant"). You can take any of the offered sushi or order a particular one to the chef if you speak japanese well enough. In my opinion he food is one step above...More

We were looking for a kaiten sushi restaurant. After reading reviews of this place, we decided to walk to the Asakusa area to check it out. After wandering up and down the street multiple times, we figured out that this place is NOT a kaiten...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
