Famous three Michelin-starred sushi omakase place! Note to self: watch "Jiro Dreams of Sushi" before coming. Also, find a friend to help me get a seat. 🤔

It's so good that it got its own documentary: Jiro Dreams of Sushi! I have yet to watch it, but it (like the restaurant) comes highly recommended by many!

According to the well-decorated gourmand, you have yet to try real sushi until you dine at three Michelin-starred Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo. Chef Jiro Ono, who is famous as the subject of the 2011 documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” helms the ten-seater joint. The venerated sushi master expertly crafts rice and raw fish creations at an impressive rate. Here, chef Robuchon developed a great respect for the Japanese culinary tradition. He also learned the significance of freshness, temperature, and precise slicing to guarantee high-quality sushi, applying these techniques at his own restaurants. Booking is extremely difficult. You’ll have to liaise your reservation through your hotel concierge; and even then, they might have to ask you for a local contact to up your chances for a seat. It’s all worth it though; do it for chef Robuchon!

Wish for lady luck to be on your side to score a coveted seat at Sukiyabashi Jiro Honten. Master chef Jiro Ono—the subject of the documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”—and his son Yoshikazu artfully craft an omakase (お任せ, “I'll leave it up to you,” a meal made of dishes chosen by the chef) of 20 perfect pieces of sushi! You’ll be tempted to stay as long as you can to savor every bite, but the experience typically only lasts around 30 minutes—so get ready to eat fast!

I really wanted to try one of the conveyor belt sushi places and my friends and I ended up in Genki Sushi in Shibuya. I really didn't expect anything big, but man it was honestly one of my favorite meals! Everything tasted so fresh. Plus, all-in-all, it was a very convenient experience. 10/10 would come again! 🍣
