A representative sushi restaurant in Tokyo

This restaurant is well-known for Japanese as one of the elegant sushi restaurant in Tokyo. The cost is not so low, but that taste is definitely good. Suitable for the one who wants to taste luxury Japanese dishes. (Typical Japanese civilians don't go there so often.)

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant today. It was a wonderful experience that we would certainly recommend. We ordered the simplest menu (at 4000 yen), which we though was good value for money - especially when compared to the sushi places at the Fish Market (considerably simpler, but almost as expensive - 3500 - and you do...

We had a fantastic meal, 16 course sushi set, which was delicious. We sat at a counter and enjoyed watching the chef make each piece of sushi for us. The shrimp were alive before he shelled them, so you know it's fresh. We met the owner who went out of his way to come by and introduce himself. He even... More

A traditional sushi house of the finest order. Expensive, yes - like everything else in Japan. But, a semi-private Sushi Chef, most delicious, freshest fish painstakingly prepared. Not only delicious, but beautiful as well! Will definitely return!

Kubei in Ginza apparently is well known to travellers. It is hard to make a reservation and time allowed in restaurant is limited to 1 hour 50 minutes. I felt that I was rushed. When I came out, I saw a long line of people, including many foreigners, waiting outside the restaurant. Their sushi is very good, no doubt, but... More

We arrived at about 6:40 pm, but the restaurant is almost full and crowded. The atmosphere is very good in the whole 5-floor restaurant. We sat in a sushi bar. The... More

On our first visit to Tokyo we wanted a special dining experience for Christmas Eve so we booked well in advance through our hotel. What an amazing and personal experience, with a sushi chef preparing and serving our group of 4 the most amazing food. The theatre of the food preparation and skill involved was fabulous to watch.

We had great time to enjoy Shushi here. A taste that nowhere else could be the same. Staffs were friendly and welcoming. We highly recommend.

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
