One of Tokyo's top sushi restaurant

Harutaka has two Michelin stars to prove that it's a very big deal when it comes to high-end sushi in Tokyo.

The prestigious Ginza restaurant is located a 5-minute walk from Shimbashi station.

As is the case with most sushi restaurants of this calibre, making a reservation beforehand is a must. You can do so through the reservation link below provided by JPNEAZY. The service starts at 5 PM and there are three time slots for you to place a reservation. Thanks to a strict schedule Harutaka has a comparatively higher turnover rate for its patronage in one evening compared to other high-end sushi restaurants. For that reason, your chances of getting a reservation are actually pretty good.
Also, note that 12 of the 17 seats are counter seats where you can see from close the chef prepare your sushi with the utmost care and attention to details. The rest of the seats are in a private room. If you want a more intimate setting this is the perfect option.
Owner and chef Harutaka Takahashi was trained at Sukiyabashi Jiro, one of the world's most prestigious sushi restaurant that is also located in Ginza.

He visits the Toyosu fish market on a daily basis to get the freshest, in-season ingredients. His style of sushi is Edomae, meaning that the sushi is made with ingredients that were traditionally available in Tokyo Bay, and that the service of the sushi is made directly from behind the counter to your plate. Sitting at the counter you thus see the chef in action, preparing the rice and the toppings, except if you choose the private room for your dinner.
The toppings at this restaurant are, of course, of outstanding quality. But if you have the chance to experience the sushi there, pay particular attention to the taste of the rice. Chef Harutaka makes a unique blend of vinegar and salt that is stronger in salt and has a milder vinegar taste. The rice is also a blend of two different varieties. The combination of the sushi rice and the topping is exquisite and also delivers a strong signature taste to Harutaka's sushi.
