Tokyo

We narrowed down for you the 5 must-try Japanese three-star Michelin restaurants in Tokyo so you don't have to!

Feel free to follow favy!

Sushi Yoshitake よしたけ

Sushi Yoshitake is simply an unforgettable dining experience! There are only two dining times: 18:00-20:00 or 20:30-22:30. You have two hours to savour these incredible sushi and you can only have the chef's "omakase" (the chef's course); it is ¥35,000 plus a 10% service fee.
You are seated at the counter and can even watch the chef prepare the food in front of you. The chef and staff speak great English and are very welcoming.

RyuGin

If you want to try the creme de la creme in terms of "kaiseki ryouri" -traditional Japanese cuisine served as a course of several small dishes, RyuGin is it! The dishes vary seasonally and are simply perfect. They are not only beautiful, but incredibly delicious! Also, the staff was fiendly and spoke English very well. It is a 3 hour dining experience, so get ready to go on a terrific culinary journey.
The dining price is ¥27,000(Tax included) and a there is a service charge (table seating 10%, private room 15%).

Sushi Saito

Sushi Saito is located very close to Roppongi itchome Station. This restaurant is also an unforgettable experience, and lucky for us it also offers a lunch menu for a portion of the price. (Lunch is 12:00-14:00 and dinner is from 17:00-23:00.)
Saito-san is a very charismatic and friendly chef. It really adds to the experience as a whole, as the atmosphere and cuisine is also great!

Kohaku 虎白

Located in Kagurazaka, which is nicknamed "Little Paris" for all its French restaurants and bakeries, but also "Little Kyoto" because it has an area with small, very traditional restaurants. The food is beautifully presented and the service was great. The course offers nine savoury dishes and a dessert. Although, the dishes are small they are filling.
Please note that it is rather hard to get a reservation at this restaurant, and they are usually later time slots. You can expect to pay about ¥20,000.

Ishikawa

This restaurant is also located in chic Kagurazaka, a short walk from Iidabashi station.
This restaurant only offers a set menu for dinner, and starts at ¥22,000.
This "kaiseki" restaurant is also an incredible experience. Everything is beautifully executed and the dishes are flavorful and artfully delicious. Simply amazing.
