Sushi is certainly a must-try when in Japan, and while there are now many forms of the dish, nothing beats authentic traditional sushi! Nishiazabu’s Sushi Shin is a traditional sushi restaurant that has kept its one Michelin star for 10 years in a row. It serves delectable sushi for both lunch and dinner, and we strongly recommend making a reservation in advance to guarantee your fill.

Why We Recommend This

  • After studying the art of sushi on his own, chef Shintaro Suzuki opened Sushi Shin in the Nishiazabu neighborhood of Tokyo. His restaurant received a Michelin star from the first year they were awarded in Japan, and has continued to keep it every year since. Even now, it is no exaggeration to call Sushi Shin one of the leading sushi restaurants not only in Tokyo, but in all of Japan.
  • Sushi Shin is a traditional Tokyo-style sushi restaurant. Sushi evolved from Edo period (1603 - 1867) dishes that used fresh fish caught in Tokyo Bay. Nowadays, this Tokyo-style sushi, known as “Edomae sushi,” exudes elegance and a sense of luxury dining.
  • Sushi Shin’s main draw is its ability to give patrons a peek into the chef’s skills as well as the traditional and modern ideas surrounding this seemingly simple dish. Lunch consists of a set menu or omakase course, while an omakase course is served for dinner, available for reservation.
  • There is an English menu and English-speaking staff are often on shift, ensuring peace of mind for international guests.
  • Nishiazabu is a neighborhood situated to the west of Roppongi. It’s a foodie’s paradise, known for its assortment of high-end sushi and yakiniku restaurants. Using public transportation, it’s a 15-minute walk from Hiroo Station or 17 minutes from Roppongi Station, both on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line. As it is a bit of a walk, taking a taxi is a good option for those who want to reach the restaurant without fuss.
