Sushi Iwa, Ginza

8-5-25 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo.

It’s hard to get into the 3 star places. Best course of action, book a good hotel and use their concierge. Our recommended ‘fine sushi lunch’ was Iwa.

People will go on about once you go to Japan you can’t have sushi anywhere else again. It’s one-upmanship bollocks. You get what you can get wherever you are. Besides you probably can’t get a decent pie-floater in Japan.

The sushi at a high-end place like Iwa is ethereal. It’s probably one of the reasons a tourist goes to Japan. All cliches are true. Menu below (have fun trying to match the fish to the picture with WordPress random image uploading)
