Michelin Three Stars in Tokyo: Sushi Mizutani 鮨水谷
Sushi Mizutani is a very small, simple sushi restaurant in Tokyo's Ginza district, run by the friendly and hospitable owner-chef Hachiro Mizutani, his wife, and an assistant.
Sushi Mizutani had its reputation as one of Tokyo's better sushi restaurants ratified by the Tokyo Michelin Guide in 2009.
Sushi Mizutani has only 10 seats at an L-shaped counter, making reservations a must.
Sushi Mizutani is well known for the quality of its shari (vinegared rice). The tamago and uni sushi at Sushi Mizutani are particularly recommended.
English is not spoken at Sushi Mizutani, meaning you should either be able to speak Japanese if you want to go there, or go in the company of a Japanese speaker.
Sushi Mizutani is probably the best sushi restaurant in Tokyo.
Sushi Mizutani does not allow the taking of photographs inside.
