It’s true, anyone can sit down at the sushi counter and enjoy a sushi omakase meal, but if you’re paying a little extra to get access to top-quality sushi prepared by a highly-respected sushi chef, you will want to get the most out of the experience. A silent omakase meal with a procession of unnamed sushi pieces one after the other, without explanation or fanfare, is quite a dull affair. That’s where this Upscale Sushi Omakase Dining Experience differs from your typical restaurant experience. With a professional interpreter by your side, you can ask the sushi chef about each cut of fish, learning about its origin and preparation method. You may be surprised to hear that sushi chefs are actually skilled conversationalists, and enjoy telling stories and chatting with their guests. This is the type of hospitality (known as “omotenashi” in Japanese) that you miss out on if you do not speak their language or go with someone who does. Not only do we provide you with a professional interpreter, but you will also get the best seat in the house, the coveted position directly in front of the sushi chef, which is usually reserved for regulars. This will give you the perfect vantage point to watch the chef at work, as well as chat with him throughout the meal.
This upscale omakase course takes place at a restaurant where guests might come to celebrate important dates, such as anniversaries or birthdays

Experience Location:
Tokyo, Japan’s capital city is made up of the 23 wards of Tokyo and the former Tokyo Prefecture. Every ward has its own attractions. Shibuya is famous for the Shibuya Crossing (the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing), nightlife, and quirky Harajuku. The ward of Shinjuku mixes business and pleasure, with office buildings in the west and Kabukicho (the red-light district) in the northeast. Chuo Ward is home to Ginza, a high-end shopping district, while Taito-ku holds on to culture and history in the form of Sensoji Temple and retro shopping streets like Ameya-Yokocho & Yanaka Ginza.
