I apologize for the silence! I have a lot of posts coming but none of them were ready quite yet. 🙂
This is our favorite kind of restaurant – you have your own little room, with a table that’s sunk into the ground, so you can dangle your legs but it’s still the height of traditional Japanese tables. Most of the dishes are small and meant to be shared around, so it’s great for taking guests who want to try a variety of foods all in one place.
A sushi chef in San Diego said “get sushi in Shibuya!” Shibuya has tons of sushi places and food in general, but we still added it to our bucket list and I did some research and last time we were in Tokyo we went to a standing sushi bar in Shibuya that was definitely tasty! But ALL sushi in Japan is so much higher quality than what you get in the states, and it’s hard for us to tell much beyond that.
