Best Sushi Places in Shinjuku | Tokyo

What is SUSHI?


Sushi is traditionally made with medium-grain white rice, though it can be prepared with brown rice. It is often prepared with seafood, such as calamari, eel, or imitation crab meat. Many others are vegetarian. Sushi is often served with pickled ginger (gari), wasabi, and soy sauceDaikon radish is popular as a garnish.

Sushi is sometimes confused with sashimi, a related Japanese dish consisting of thinly sliced raw fish, or occasionally meat, and an optional serving of rice.[citation needed]

Where’s the best SUSHI place in Tokyo ?


I know the Tsukiji Fish marktet is the biggest fish market all over the world but you cannot find the best Sushi restaurant in Tsukiji.

Most of the good restaurants are in Shinjuku, Ginza, Roppongi, Akasaka ,Shibuya and Ebisu.

This time I would introduce best Sushi places in Shinjuku.

Shinjuku has perfect access all over Tokyo (actually shinjuku is the biggest terminal station all over the world) , I bet many of tourists stay in around Shinjuku.

I picked some restaurants below (of course with zero commission honest opinion as Tokyo-freak.

 

1.  Kyubey, Keio Plaza Hotel


When it comes to Suhi, Kyubey is the most famous and high quality Sushi resutaurant in Japan. Actually president Obama also visited Kyubey during his stay in Tokyo.

This place is not exactly the same as the one president Obama visited but it provides the same quality as there. ( The one Obama visited is located in Ginza and that place fully booked next 3-6 months )

You cannot experience this quality of Sushi in any other countries, genuine Sushi is this.

2. Rozan Shinjuku


Rozan is another famous and the high end Sushi restaurant in Tokyo(Shinjuku) .

Their quality is amazing good. It is not like just the Sushi restaurant, you can also feel the Japanese traditional way to eat Sushi. When Japanese eat, we (including Japanese author) say “Itadakimasu” it means we take your life for my life. It is the way (can be a ritual) to respect all the lives, Japanese people eat and enjoy their meal with no sound. It maybe a culture shock but hope all the tourist also can enjoy that quiet quality time here.

3. Otarumasazushi (おたる政寿司 新宿店)


This is the standard level for Sushi restaurant in Tokyo. Their price is not bad and also quality is good.  It is not like top-notch Sushi restaurant but this quality of restaurant it is hard to find in the other country(or maybe impossible) It is worth to visit this restaurant as Japan experiences.

Otaru is the name of city in Northern Japan area (Hokkaido pref.)  This Sushi restaurant is originally from Hokkaido.

4. Sushi Darihan (鮨 だり半)

For your information


Most of the Sushi restaurant is more expensive than the other restaurants. But still there are some other type of sushi restaurants. It is belt conveyor Sushi restaurant. This place is not fancy, not like the one cooked by proficient Sushi chef ,but it has good enough quality for Sushi (mostly cooked by machine or part-timer ). There are some belt conveyor type Sushi restaurant some are bad some are good enough.
I can recommend “Sushiro” for this type of restaurant.

Here’s the closest “Sushiro” from Shinjuku.

 

Estimated cost (per person)

800-2,000 yen ( 7-18 USD)

Access: 1-3-8 Nishigotanda,Shinagawa,Tokyo
