A real family restaurant, as the current chef is the 3rd generation to run the business. A very good sushi as they really pay attention to the outsourcing of the Products. Go for the largest menu, you won t be disappointed.

I believe that 5 stars are merited. Like so many places in Tokyo you really need Google maps/directions from a local to find. I'm no expert in Japanese food but recognise a class act. An American who spoke perfect Japanese was entertaining a guest to...More

This restaurant is just a few blocks from Ueno station. It was founded in 1928 and listed as a bib gourmand restaurant (think high quality food with good value) and did not disappoint. The price point was 1600-5000 ¥ for lunch menu. We did not...More

This is a typical place for local Japanese. Almost 90 years in business Tensuzu serves very good traditional tempura and has a very friendly chef. While very traditional with Japanese only menu on the outside, they do have an English menu inside.

Oishi! That means delicious and this tempura restaurant is. Lotus in tempura is amazing and the cuttle fish is perfect. The chef was kind enough to let us sit at the cooking bar without reservations and explained his craft to us.

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
