Fukuzushi. Minato, Japan

A family-owned establishment since 1917, Fukuzushi has occupied a quiet lot in the back streets of Roppongi for more than 40 years.

Unlike the plethora of tiny sushi bars that spans Tokyo, this restaurant is spacious (it even has a bar and lounge area), making it great for families, groups and business meetings.

Regular customers include many of Japan’s well-known entertainment personalities and celebrities drawn to one if the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo.

The current owner and master chef at Fukuzushi is George Fukuzawa, who honed his skills while studying the craft under both his father and grandfather.

Watching him and his assistants at work is half the fun of the experience, so small groups should opt for seats at the counter if possible.

Fukuzawa aims to please his customers in any way he can, while still maintaining the sense of pride for which sushi chefs are known.

He carefully seasons each piece of nigiri with exactly the right amount of wasabi and soy sauce, so don’t dunk yours in more shoyu unless you want to offend.

Careful attention is paid to every detail, such as cutting nigiri into two smaller pieces for women, so that they don’t have to struggle to try to bite them in half or chew on a huge piece of fish.

For one of Tokyo’s most popular sushi restaurants, Fukuzushi is priced slightly lower than many others. Lunch courses start at ¥2,625 and dinner courses go for ¥6,300 and ¥8,400.

At least two people need to order the dinner courses, but an à la carte menu is also available for solo diners.
