Very good sushi!

The nigiri is fresh and comes in generous portions. My wife is Japanese and she likes this place a lot. Most seats are at the counter where you can grab what you like from the conveyor belt or order what you like freshly made. Same midis operandi as Sushi Train franchise. Staff are friendly and... read 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 fresh insted of picking one from the kaiten. I suggest the shirako no tempura, it... More

Indeed is the best sushi in Japan! There is several dishes with all sort of delicious sushi for choose, the color of the dish is the price of the meal. We can have a generous tuna portion for only 100 iens! The staff is incredible, they speak fluent english and they are very kind, I received a welcome dish for... 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 other kaiten sushi restaurants, dishes are made with a quick rythm. If you prefer to... More

Been to two magurobito in Asakusa. One is near asakusa exit, ginza line and the other one is near nakamise street. The one near the exit is not the kaiten type and a bit boring. The one near nakamise, I think third street on your left as soon as you pass kaminarimon is the kaiten sushi type and very enjoyable... 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 sushi place AND is standing only.

Great otoro sushi. That is without a doubt. But unfortunately gaijin are not treated equal. We got very bad seats while Japanese people got good ones. Service was bad as well. It's a shame and i'd rather not write this because we were really looking forward to this place.

On a recent trip to Japan, we happened upon the kaiten sushi bar by accident, when we were visiting the nearby Senso-Ji Temple. As it happens, this was one of the best sushi experiences in our entire trip and we ended up returning 2 more times. Yes, there are much more high-end (and expensive) places, but Magurobito delivers real value... More

Among the many eateries in this very touristic place, it was reassuring to find a "homey" atmosphere and delicious sushi. The chefs were explaining the details of seasonality and the automatized check-out - just slipping a device over the tower of plates produced an electronic chip which kept us wondering for a few more seconds - until we reached the...

A fun sushi-go-round restaurant, there are live fish in an aquarium in the centre where the chefs work to put the food on the conveyor belt. You can order off the menu, or pick the plates up off the belt. Plates are colour-coded, each colour a different price. The sushi was very fresh and quite delicious. Green tea is complimentary,...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
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 sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
