We have introduced some of our recommended sushi restaurants in Tokyo.

For those of you who just want to eat sushi, you may be more satisfied by a kaiten-sushi (conveyer belt sushi) or an all-you-can-eat menu. If you prefer to eat top quality sushi of Japan or want to enjoy the Japanese atmosphere and food culture in addition to sushi, we suggest you go to a cozy sushi bar that only has counter seating or to Tsukiji.
