Sushi Tokami: Even Exceptional Sushi Can Be Accessible to All

Updated October 31, 2019 | by Chad A. Thiele, 23 year veteran of Tokyo.

Sushi Tokami is one of the highest-end sushi restaurants you can find in Tokyo; with unique touches in the menu.

I want to draw your attention to the article by Boutique Japan (quoted and linked below) because it is absolutely packed with incredible sushi shops for you to discover in Tokyo.

I’m talking all the best from #1 all the way down.

It introduces the highest of high-end sushi shops Tokyo has to offer. Of course, the catch is they are nearly impossible to make reservations. Even the top-end hotel concierge services can’t get you into some of these legendary shops.

One thing I love in this article is the author points out “best” is different for everyone. It’s a critical point. Don’t ever let headlines derail your personal preferences.

While the article goes through 25 sushi shops, I chose Sushi Tokami as the place to link to because it seems of all the sushi restaurants, it is the most accessible — you have a shot at actually making a reservation there in your lifetime.

+With his insider connections to some of the best tuna on the market, it’s no surprise that the maguro at Tokami is utterly outstanding. In addition to the usual cuts of tuna, they sometimes serve a tuna bone soup that’ll have you selling your soul to the devil for just one more bowl.Boutique Japan

How much to Tokami’s cost?

+Expect to spend about ¥20,000 per person. A bit of a pricey place, but they do accept credit cards

No parking here so budget for paid parking or train/taxi fare.
