Sushi is one of the most representative of Japanese food culture, and if you are planning a trip to Japan or already staying there, you might be wondering where to find the best sushi in Japan. Well, if you are willing to pay 30,000 yen for the “Chef’s Recommended Special Course”, then you would want to make reservations at Tokyo’s Sukiyabashi Jiro (すきやばし次郎).
The restaurant is not located in any grand hotel but hidden in a basement attached to the Ginza Metro Station. However, its chef Sukiyabashi Jiro is the first sushi chef in the world to receive three Michelin stars. A documentary movie has even been made to feature this 85 year old sushi master, where sushi lovers have to make reservations months in advance just to get a seat at his sushi bar.
CNNGO Japan has a good review article on what you can expect if you have the chance to enjoy his “Chef’s Recommended Special Course” comprising of 19 different sushi.
