Sukiyabashi Jiro is a must visit sushi institution in Tokyo. It is quite challenging to get a booking so call at least 5 weeks in advance. US President Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other dignitaries dined at the Ginza branch of this simple yet fabulous 3 Star Michelin Rated sushi restaurant in early April 2014. The Ginza branch can accommodate up to 35 people at a time but the Honten branch which is managed by the owner’s son can accommodate only up to 15 people. The ambiance is quite somber and the décor is simple traditional Japanese but people come here mainly for the food and not for the ambiance, especially because the eatery was featured on a documentary. Most of the servers only speak the local language so best learn a few Japanese phrases before you go. Diners will surely enjoy 88 year old Chef Jiro Ono’s out of this world sushi creations since he has been a sushi master for most of his lifetime. Get ready to savour more than 20 sushi courses from their tasting menu with dishes like flounder, squid, abalone, mackerel, uni, and scallop sushi. Local beers and sake make up the drink list.
Sukiyabashi Jiro is open on weekdays for lunch from 11:30 am until 2 pm, and for dinner from 5:30 –8:30 pm. They are closed on public holidays, Saturday evenings, Sundays, mid-August and on public holidays.
