Sukiyabashi Jiro For Sushi

Sukiyabashi Jiro is considered by many the best sushi restaurant in the world. It boasts three Michelin stars and a long list of reservations for people waiting to get in on this coveted sushi restaurant.

For ¥30,000 you'll be served 20 courses which dive deep into sushi master Jiro's original tasting menu of select sushi, wasabi, pickled ginger, and special sauce.

The course lasts for roughly 30 minutes, so it literally costs you ¥1000 per minute if you think about it, but it's apparently well worth if you're a connoisseur.

Kyubey For Sushi

Kyubey is another iconic high-end sushi restaurant in Ginza. There are some cheaper options there, where the "omakase" (leave it to the chef) course starts at around ¥10,000, or even a ¥6,000 "chirashi" dish. The most luxurious course is the "kaiseki", which is about ¥30,000.

This restaurant is highly popular so it is always packed with a long line outside so you better book in advance!

Inakaya For Robatayaki

Inakaya is one of the most famous robatayaki restaurants in Japan. The cuisine is a traditional form of barbecue cooked over charcoal and it usually consists mainly of seafood. The restaurant is not too big, having about a 20 people seating capacity. The interior is warm and authentic. You see the chefs prepare your food on the fire right before your eyes. Every food offered is in-season and really fresh. Expect to pay around ¥10,000 to ¥15,000.

Yamanoue For Tempura

Much like sushi, tempura can be very cheap but it can be very high-end as well. For the high-end experience, Yamanoue is the place to go. You can enjoy incredibly fresh seasonal vegetables and seafood cooked tempura style to perfection.

Dinner starts at ¥9,000. If you're lucky, you can get a seat at the bar to see the chef in action! The vegetable tempura bowl is delicious, it has seven kinds of vegetables (sweet potatoes, asparagus, shiitake, etc.). For lunch, you can get a set for as low as ¥2,275 or a course from ¥5,500.

Daigo For Shojin Ryori (Buddhist Cuisine)

Have you ever heard of Shojin Ryori? It is traditional cuisine for Buddhist monks. Respecting the Buddhist philosophy, animal products are not used; simply fresh and seasonal fruits and herbs.

Just because this cuisine is vegan that doesn't mean this cuisine is by any means bland. Dish after dish, it is colourful, creative and delicious. Even if you're not vegan or even vegetarian, you will find it delicious!

There are different "kaiseki" (Japanese course where each dish is served one after the other) courses to choose from.
They start at ¥10,000 for lunch; for dinner, they start at ¥15,000.
