Located in the heart of the upscale neighborhood of Ginza, Ginza Koyju is a three Michelin-starred restaurant that will give its customers a remarkable kaiseki experience. Kaiseki is a traditional Japanese multi-course and haute cuisine. The restaurant sits on the fourth floor of an office building, but there’s nothing business-like about it. Owned and operated by Chef Toru Okuda, the restaurant delivers scrumptious cuisines with super fresh seasonal ingredients. The menu consists of seven or eight refined and thoughtful dishes that change seasonally. The restaurant guarantees to give you the best ingredients available, and you can taste the difference. If you are confused about the menu, the team will gladly explain every course and how you can properly enjoy them to get the best taste. Visitors will be seated at a Zen-like dining room or in one of the peaceful private dining rooms. If you choose not to sit in the private room, you can watch the mastery of Chef Toru Okuda preparing your dish! Ginza Koyju is so popular that diners are struggling to get a reservation.

Sushi Saito

Type of Food: Japanese, Asian

Menu: Sushi

Prices: $$$$

Dress code: Smart Casual

Opening Hours: 12.00 PM – 2.00 PM and 5.00 PM – 11.00 PM (Closed on Sunday)

Sushi Saito is easily one of the most delightful sushi restaurants in Japan and it surely deserves its three Michelin star. Chef Takashi Saito will make sure that every sushi is perfect. He is skillful, talented, and even considered as one of the youngest legendary sushi chefs in the world. The chef goes to extraordinary lengths to get the best ingredients to create sushi. He balances the flavor, temperature, and texture, which makes eating here an exquisite experience for every visitor. However, since the restaurant only has limited seating – it only seats eight people! – and it is very popular, reservation is essential and can be quite difficult.
