Sukiyabashi Jiro in Roppongi
Sukiyabashi Jiro is located inside Roppongi Hills and is a Michelin 2-starred sushi restaurant. As they maintain the tradition of Edo-style sushi, customers are expected to focus on eating the sushi and to eat it quickly. It might sound slightly strange but hence goes the tradition. It is not the type of place to go and expect to be able to converse with your guests and slowly enjoy the food and sake.
There is only the "Omakase sushi," which is a sushi course and the chef chooses all the sushi that is to be served to you. This is because they want customers to eat the sushi at the best time of the season. Expect to have the freshest fish possible served and prepared in the best possible manner.
