Best Sushi Restaurants in Ueno! Definitely a Great Dining Experience!

Your Japan experience wouldn’t be complete without exploring the signature spots and unforgettable local foods so make sure to explore more than what your eyes can see.

Strolling around Ueno area can be pretty tiring, but what’s more interesting is the fact that there are so many sushi restaurants at a very reasonable price!


Magurobito is a standing sushi restaurant, which means you need to stand while grabbing for a quick sushi meal.

Here you can experience fresh and delicious sushi at a very fair price! The only problem is that you may end up waiting a little longer than expected as this place gets really crowded every single time.

It’s only about 2 minutes away from the nearest JR Okachimachi Station, and 3 minutes from Ueno Okamachi – Oedo Line.

Highly Recommended Menu: Maguro, Ebi, Maki, Sake, and other sushi plates

Sushi Zanmai

Sushizanmai is conveniently located near the station. It will take for about 3 minutes on foot if you are coming from Ueno Okachimachi Station-Oedo Line (which is the nearest exit).

What I love most about Sushizanmai is the refreshing taste of their sushi dishes and although it gets really crowded inside or probably takes time to line up just to get in, still, this is a great place to bring your family along with you.

The price is just right! Well, compared to other sushi spots that I’ve been to, this restaurant does not exaggerate its menu price.

Highly Recommended Menu: ~Sushi Platter~
