, and it's not in Roppongi Hills
Ryugin isn't even in Roppongi.

That's ok, why not go for 3 stars or more. The place is the bomb.

Ryugin is in Roppongi. I've been there.

There were in Roppongi until December of last year. Now is Hibiya.

I need a place that will accept a reservation for mid July and be as good (not any worse and has to have two michelin stars) pronto.

there is always sushi zanmai.

Indeed, and I have a feeling it will be!

I have had sushi dinners that cost that much, but they were at the intersection of (a) someone else paying and (b) copious amounts of alcohol involved.

I totally don't get this reverential elevation of sushi into some sort of fashion worship. Bloody Americans want to assign a number and rank to everything. You go to a sushiya to drink and shoot the breeze and eat some fish. The stuff is not even cooked for crissakes. The only reason to pay up is to impress business clients. I remember when foreigners used to turn up their noses at the idea of eating raw fish. Now they're all bowing at the hinoki communion rail.

But it's the hinoki communion third rail! You can't touch that!

Price of sushi in Tokyo is driven by the Japanese customers, not by "bloody americans".

Japanese are very good at assigning a number and a rank to everything.

There are indeed things that people mostly pay up for to impress. Top grade Sushi is not one of them.

Anyone up for a Dom Perignon on crushed ice?

Breaking news: skytrax enters the sushiya market

I rarely hear people talk about Matsue at Ebisu station.
Hands down best sushi experience and price for quality. The variety and quality of fish on the omakase menu is staggering.

For cheap options a la carte, I found itamae sushi really reasonable, and a good primer to experience different tuna

Experiences at Harutaka, and should I cancel for Sawada?
 
I was wondering whether any FT`ers have had experience with dining at Harutaka.
And whether it is worth cancelling for Sawada?
