Tokyo is known for having a lot of Michelin-starred sushi restaurants, and you can easily read about them in any standard guidebook. We haven’t been to them all, but we have been to Umi, and we love it - a lot. Foreigners usually pay more attention to places like Sukibayashi Jiro or Sushi Saito, but the sushi chef here is very appreciative and honored whenever anybody decides to come in. And the fact that he makes you feel right at home, especially because you’re spending $300 or more on a meal, goes a long way. Your dinner at Umi is kind, warm, and welcoming, and you can’t put a price on that experience. It helps the food is awesome too.

Tsukiji Fish Market

There are plenty of spots to eat at in Tsukiji, but Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi are two of the best. Take note: there will be lots of tourists.

Sushi Ishii image

Sushi Ishii is one of our favorite spots for a nicer meal that’s still reasonable. Bonus points for the chef being entertaining and very accommodating.

Funamizaka image

Sick of traditional, heavier ramen? The clam ramen at Funamizaka is a refreshing break.

Afuri image

Afuri is a counter spot for yuzu-based ramen. The broth here is light, but the pork is perfectly smoky.
