Where is the Best Sushi in Tokyo?

Kyubei

This is one of the top sushi spots in Ginza (that says a lot), yet it doesn't have the pretentiousness of the other highly regarded places in the neighborhood. Sushi gets expensive in Tokyo so if you're on a budget, go for the $80 lunch menu. Sometimes sushi spots hold the best pieces for the dinner crowd, but you won't get a bad meal here.

Daiwa Sushi

Located at the Tsukiji Fish Market, where every beautiful piece of fish in the entire country comes from. For about 3500 Yen you'll get enough food for one. Don't worry about not being able to speak Japanese, as you can just point to pictures to order. Go early, as the market opens around 3:00am and closes early afternoon.

Sushidai

This is one of the more famous sushi spots in the Tsukiji Fish Market. The line gets long so go early when the market opens. There are no plates, as all of the food is given to you on the raised counter.

Mizutani

This place has 3 Michelin stars, and only 10 seats, but this is THE sushi experience in Tokyo. Ginza has all of the best sushi spots, and you will pay about $200 per person here, but it's well worth it.

Sukiyabashi Jiro

The world's best sushi? Yes. The world's most expensive? Absolutely. Do they accept reservations from foreigners? Nope. So why put it on this list? For the love of god, save up and find a Japanese person to reserve for you.
