Best high-end sushi in the Omotesando / Harajuku / Aoyama area

Harajuku

There are some of the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo in the area. Here is our top 5 list.

Feel free to follow favy!

Umi 海味

umi_nigiri
This sophisticated sushi restaurant has two Michelin stars. The staff is very energetic and enthusiastic. With their selected ingredients from different parts of Japan, they offer you an incredibly refined sushi experience. Since this is a very popular restaurant with only 10-counter seats, making a reservation before-hand is strongly suggested.

Takumi Shingo 匠 進吾

You will find this restaurant in a quiet part of Aoyama. It's run by a sushi chef that is cheerful and kind.

Nowadays, it's becoming rarer to see even high-end sushi bars display their prized neta (toppings) at the counter, but Takumi Shingo hasn't abandoned this tradition. You see the entire process of sushi preparation; from the cutting of the raw pieces taken from the display to the careful confection of the nigiri riceball and the finishing touches before the sushi is handed to you directly to your seat from the chef behind the counter.

Sushi Ryujiro 鮨 龍次郎

This is a recently-opened sushi bar (2019) but it has already garnered amazing reviews and it's already considered one of the best in the area by sushi enthusiasts. The reason is that chef Ryujiro Nakamura comes from the two Michelin starred Umi sushi bar presented above. You get here comparable quality to Umi and an unforgettable traditional sushi experience.

Okei Sushi おけいすし

This is a nice shop if you want to experience really good sushi without breaking the bank. They have a relatively affordable lunch course that is ¥3,900, which is significantly cheaper than the dinner courses of the restaurants introduced above. If you want a really high-end experience, on the other hand, you can go there for dinner and enjoy the ¥15,000 decadent sushi course (5 pieces of sashimi and 15 nigiri sushi pieces) with free-flowing, good quality sake.

Takumi Sushiko 匠 すし昂

The chef acquired experience at Sushi Sho in Yotsuya, another exceptionally good sushi restaurant. Takumi Sushiko offers an intimate experience around a 9-seat counter. Courses include top-quality sushi and various small dishes of kappo cuisine (refined, traditional Japanese cuisine that includes grilled fish).

The chef at Takumi Sushiko is a Japanese sake aficionado, and often acquires rare bottles of for his restaurant. If you want to pair your meal with some fine sake, this is definitely a good option.
