Kyubey, The Zenith Of Sushi In Tokyo (Reservation Info Included)
Kyubey is said to be one of the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo. While in Tokyo, I bet you want to eat all the sushi before you head back home. And of course, there are tons of types to choose from, such as the cheap conveyor belt type of sushi, or the standing type of sushi. But while you're here, you should splurge at least once and try la creme de la creme, Kyubey in Ginza!
Kyubey, High-End Sushi Perfection
Kyubey's main restaurant is in Ginza; it has an annex in Ginza as well, and some branches at different hotels around the city. (Please look at the link below for other locations).
The Ginza main branch opened in 1935.
This restaurant is highly popular so it is always packed with a long line outside so you better book in advance!
At the main restaurant in Ginza, they have different seating options, such as counter seats, or Japanese-style counter seats, or even private rooms for different group sizes.
For a more impressive lunch, the kaiseki (a type of Japanese course meal) is great, it is between 15,000-25,000 yen.
*Note that the lunch prices as of October 2018, are all reduced by ¥2,000 for the anniversary commemorating the foundation of Kyubey!
