So I posted asking for advice on Shinjuku a few days ago, but because I've only got time for dinner and then a late-night meal, I took advice and am staying in Ueno instead. Easier to get to and from NRT.
I searched the board for "Ueno" going back two years, and found nothing.
I'm betting that there is probably actually plenty written on the board about Ueno restaurants, but maybe without the word "Ueno" in the reviews? But I don't know what else to search for.
All of which brings me to my question: Your favorite places in Ueno? I want a great sushi meal that I don't have to make a reservation for, and late-night ramen. But if you told me about some killer robata, or whatever else, I'd be open to trying something new, too.
Closer to Ueno Station is better, but I can walk 15-20 minutes too.
