Hi lovtravl,

I’d highly recommend “Sushisei” on the 5th floor in Ginza Hakuhinkan Bldg. It is about 5-minute walk from Shimbashi Station. The quality of Sushi is excellent, and they have non-smoking seats though limited. Open 7 days.

“Sushisei” at Ginza Hakuhinkan Bldg., 5F

address: 8-8-11 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

phone: 03-3574-8247

map (in Japanese): tsukijisushisay.co.jp/store/hakuhin_m.html

If you decide to go to Sushisei at Ginza Hakuhinkan, please ask Dai-Ichi Hotel’s concierge to make a reservation for you. They take VISA, Master, Diners, etc., but not AMEX. We usually eat a lot of Sushi and Sashimi at Sushisei, and spend about 3,000yeb-5,000yen per person, excluding alcohol.

There is another Sushisei in Ginza, also about 5-minute walk from Shimbashi Station. They are also very good, but have no non-smoking seats. Closed on Sundays and holidays.

address: 8-2-13 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

phone: 03-3572-4770

They take VISA, Master, Diners, and AMEX. Reservations are not available. On average, we wait about 15-30 minutes.

I have been to Sushisei at Tsukiji multiple times. They have two shops there on the same street and they are both pretty good. Per head cost is usually about 3,000 to 3,500 Yen. The Sushisei at Shinjuku Isetan is not as good.

My favorite sushi around Ginza is Midori Sushi (美登利). It is just across the JR tracks when you exit the hotel to the northeast side. Once you get across the tracks, there is a street named Korida-dori that has many restaurants. Midori is about 2 or 3 minutes heading north. It serves a great set at 2,100 Yen that includes a crab roe salad with crab fat dressing (the good stuff of the crab), chawanmushi (steamed egg), miso soup, and a very good combination sushi set (including toro, uni, ikura,anago, etc). There are more expensive sets available but I find this one very satisfying already. The place is packed with locals. You can get a seat if you go before 11:15 (it opens at 11:00). After 11:30, a line starts to form and you can easily wait for an hour. In the evening, it opens at 4:30 on weekdays and all day on weekends. Note that Ginza restaurants typically close a bit earlier than Shinjuku so don't be too late.

Also, there is another Midori sushi branch at Shibuya as well. However, that location is not as good.

If you're not budget constraint and want to experience the BEST sushi in Japan, try Kyubei or Sukiyabashi Jiro, the top two listed on this link:
