You're in the sushi capital of the world, but I would have to say one of the most popular sushi restaurants for middle class Japanese people is UMEGAOKA SUSHI-NO MIDORI SOHONTEN. (shortly called MIDORI SUSHI)

MIdori Sushi has several locations. Ginza, Akasaka, Shibuya, Daikanyama and 5 other locations, None of them take reservations and the wait could be as long 90 min especially Shibuya location.

I have a tips for the traveller who can't speak Japanese, choose the booth in stead of the bar, because you can make an order by ipad, have a picture of each items, so never missed .

the food is good,the green tea and soup served with the sushi are excellent. It was not expensive. We went at around 7:15 pm and queued for about half an hour. There are seats when you get close.I do recommend this restaurant.

We ate here a few times. The first time was when we arrived at 4pm and there were no queues at all. When the food came, we were surprised by the freshness of it all. The whole uni is worth a special mention. Other fish such as fatty tuna and akagi were good too. On other days we came at around 7pm, the queue was around 1 hour - this is a highly popular place with locals and tourists alike.

The lineup looks daunting but loves quickly and the wait is worth it. We went to the one in Mark City twice and it was beautiful both times :)

Really fresh sushi you can taste the ocean! I have almost forgotten the real taste of fish after eating so much boring sushi from sushi trains!
This is top quality sushi at a good price. Not a cheap eat you can getting great quality food with great quality food. If you dont like waiting, go there 30min before it opens- I know, still have to wait. But thats the norm for great food in Japan!
If you are the curious type I recommend you seat at the bar so you can take in the whole experience even more and the passion to sushi perfection of the chefs!
