    Tokyo Chuou-ku Ginza 8-7-6
    This sushi restaurant in Ginza is famous for its traditional Edo-mae sushi that makes use of the taste and season of its ingredients. Ever since it was founded in 1935, it has been visited by many VIPs including those from the political world. Guests can choose between counter seats, hori-gotatsu recessed floor seats, table seats, and private rooms. In recent years it has also become popular with foreign tourists for the ability to enjoy a relaxed meal in a Japanese-style space known as “modern sukiya-zukuri.” It also has a complete take-out menu featuring futomaki (a thick roll of sushi) and bara-chirashi.

    My best advice would be to go here the first night or as early as you can in your trip, because after eating here you are going to want to go back!!! It was the absolute best Omakase sushi we had our...
