Born in 1925, Sukiyabashi Jiro Honten owner Jiro Ono is recognised by Guinness World Records to be the oldest living Michelin three-star chef (and thanks to David Gelb's documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi, he's also now a familiar face to cinema-goers worldwide). A visit to Sukiyabashi Jiro Honten should be treated with the utmost reverence – just try not to show your surprise when the meal ends about 20 minutes after it started. Diners should expect to pay at least ¥30,000 for dinner, and be warned that they don't accept credit cards.
