Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
There are thousands of sushi restaurants in Tokyo. So even if you visit a sushi restaurant a day for a year, it's still not easy to narrow down thousands (some say nearly 4000) of sushi spots to a top ten.
To make it more practical, we've stuck to high-end (chef's selection from ¥10,000) restaurants, which are semi-easy to get a reservation at least a few weeks in advance. On top of that, they have a distinctive preparation style, and not be excessively far from central Tokyo. Most importantly, they ought to be a good option for high-end sushi restaurant first-timers, or those who can't speak Japanese. Welcome to the wonderful world of fine-dining sushi.
