Why Go?

Chef Matsumoto is a top-notch chef with a resume that includes years working at high-caliber restaurants including Kyubey and Sushi Kanesaka, some of the most highly-regarded sushi restaurants in Tokyo. He serves exceptional sushi of the same caliber at his own restaurant, but only just gained his first Michelin Star in 2019, meaning that reservations are still easier to get. Matsumoto is guaranteed to satisfy the craving of even the most sophisticated sushi connoisseur.


Everything at Matsumoto is outstanding, and the high number of nigiri served throughout the course means that guests will be treated to a huge variety of flavors and combinations. A couple of the items that stand out as particularly unique are the 'nebuto' (small fish fried whole without batter), and uni (sea urchin) wrapped in a thin slice of squid sashimi. The flavor combinations are exceptional and are guaranteed to please.


Ordering the chef's omakase course is the only option at Matsumoto. The lunch course will cost about ¥1,100, whereas the dinner course will cost ¥25,000. It's definitely not a cheap meal, but the price is quite appropriate for the quality of the sushi that guests get to enjoy. In addition, the service is wonderful, and the chef and hosts are very friendly and inviting making for an extremely comfortable experience.

Reservations and Access

Sushi Matsumoto is located on the 3rd floor of the Daihachi Arai Building, about 3 minutes from Akasaka Station or 4 minutes from Akasaka-Mitsuke Station.

It's recommended to book about a month in advance to guarantee a seat, although it is still a bit easier to book here than at some older, more established Michelin-Starred Sushi restaurants in Tokyo. Use the link below if you don't speak Japanese and need help making the reservation.
