The Best Omakase Sushi ¥6,500 Can Get You: Shigeru


This creative sushi restaurant in Tokyo's Funamachi area offers outstanding yet affordable sushi that was good enough to earn Michelin's Bib Gourmand award (for great food that is affordable). If you're on a budget and looking for fantastic sushi that won't break the bank, this is a surefire option.

Sushi Worth Writing Home About (Omakase for ¥6,500)

The omakase sushi course at Shigeru is just ¥6,500! The course includes 4 or 5 mouth watering tsumami dishes such as sashimi, steamed sushi (see picture below), and charred smelt. These are followed by 7 nigiri sushi pieces that are all phenomenal. One of the stand-outs has to be the torotaku (fatty tuna with pickled daikon), shown below. The umami will blow your taste buds away. The meal is finished off with a sweet tamagoyaki (egg), as is traditional.

If you only want to experience the nigiri (and miss out on the fantastic tsumami), the nigiri course is only ¥3,000. Maybe if you're really trying to save some money, but want to try some awesome sushi, this + a snack at the conbini could be a good option!

The Shop

Shigeru is a small restaurant with just 7 seats at a counter. The atmosphere is more laid-back than at a fancier sushi restaurant, and the pace that the sushi is served is slower than other restaurants. This makes for a pleasant and relaxed experience that is refreshing. Until 9:00pm, diners are limited to the items on the course, but after 9:00, until the shop closes at 1:00am, guests are free to order additional items and relax while drinking lots of nihonshu (this place has GREAT sake)!


Although still not well known outside of Tokyo, this shop is extremely popular! Make a reservation if you plan to visit (use the link below for English).

The restaurant is in the middle of Tokyo, just a 2 minute walk away from Akebonobashi station.

This is a gem of a restaurant! Don't miss it if you get the chance to visit.
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
