Sushi Restaurants in Japan

An undeniably quintessential Japanese food, the beloved Japanese dish of bite-sized sushi can be found in so many various forms at different types of sushi restaurants in Japan. Including rolled maki sushi, luxurious kaisendon sushi bowls, or individual plates at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant (some even delivered directly via a tiny shinkansen bullet train); sushi restaurants in Japan are as diverse as the quality ingredients and sushi types available.

Various regions of Japan have their own prefectural specialty style of sushi, depending on what is available in each region and throughout different seasons. Hokkaido is known for its high-quality seafood and sushi by extension, while sushi restaurants in Tokyo are famous for starting up the individual nigiri sushi trend during the Edo period (historically an on-the-go snack).

Sushi restaurants in Japan range broadly from local family-run restaurants (fitted out with tatami mat seating and traditional decor) to high-tech operations (where you can seamlessly order your next sushi roll with the simple touch of a tablet). You can enjoy hospitable omakase sushi at a lavish sushi restaurant in Osaka where a qualified sushi chef prepares each and every piece in front of your eyes (with the rice delicately shaped by hand). Local sushi restaurants in Kyoto in marketplaces contrast with humble sushi restaurants along Japan’s coast, all serving up fresh sushi and friendly service. Casual conveyor belt sushi can be just 100 yen a plate, or thousands of yen per serving at Michelin-starred restaurants in Tokyo.

No matter which way you want to enjoy sushi in Japan, there are endless options for sushi restaurants in Japan to suit your budget. You can have a unique modern sushi dining experience or traditional dining experience. If you are not sure where to start when it comes to sushi in Japan, reserve a table or counter seat at a sushi restaurant before you go to ensure you get the freshest and best sushi in Japan!

Frequently Asked Questions
How to reserve sushi restaurants in Japan?
You can reserve sushi restaurants in Japan by calling ahead of time, directly to the restaurant. In some cases, restaurants don’t accept reservations, or if you can call, sometimes there is a language barrier that makes reserving a table difficult. If you want to reserve a sushi restaurant in Japan, one of the best options is to make a reservation using an online service. There are many online options that help foreign travelers to make a reservation, such as platforms including byFood. You can choose what type of sushi restaurant you want to eat at and your desired location using filters on the website. Easily make a reservation by entering your details on the restaurant page. ByFood will reach out to the restaurant on your behalf and send you a confirmation email if your reservation is successful. If the restaurant can’t accommodate you, you will receive a rejection email.
Is a reservation required for sushi restaurants in Japan?
This depends on the type of sushi restaurant. Some casual sushi restaurants or conveyor belt sushi restaurants do not require a reservation, or in some cases do not allow it. Other sushi restaurants in Japan like those that offer high-end omakase sushi services or Michelin-starred restaurants always require a reservation.
What is the average cost of a meal at sushi restaurants in Japan?
Expect to pay a minimum of 2000 yen for quality sushi in Japan, however it depends on the restaurant.
