Japanese/Asian Restaurant near Ueno Station

We are supposed to meet a friend near Ueno station. Can you recommend high-end Japanese or Asian restaurants nearby? If it is a sushi restaurant, we prefer a mid-range restaurant. The reason is that we don't think we can tell the subtle difference between excellent sushi and good sushi. Thank you.

We always stay in Ueno - have been about 20 times.

Is the friend you are meeting Japanese?

In Ueno you can't walk five feet without tripping over another restaurant; you don't even have to leave the station if you don't want to.

Our favourite restaurant in Ueno is Musashino, a tonkatsu place we found first online with many favourable reviews, all justified.

PS Your comment here is very wise: "we don't think we can tell the subtle difference between excellent sushi and good sushi"

I was just having a midnight walk around Shinobazu Pond, then Yushima Tenjin, and Kanda Myojin (now at Akihabara).

Tonkatsu Musashino, recommended above: https://translate.google.com/translate…

For something high-end, how about Inshoutei in Ueno Park?

Imahan of Ningyocho is an established chain specializing in upscale sukiyaki, it has a restaurant across the street from Ueno Matsuzakaya store (which is about 7-8 minutes south from Ueno Park; nearest station is Okachimachi / Ueno Okachimachi).
