Exceptionally funny, knowledgable, and delicious
Best sushi of my life with a guy that was amazing!
An excellent adventure
It was a great adventure, I ordered both sushi and sashimi, I was totally amazed by the taste and the texture. Nothing could beat this experience. Well, maybe only Jiro could....
Best meal of my life. The detail of this restaurant is amazing.
I learned today:
They do not serve salmon because all salmon served in sushi places is frozen -20celcius as it is a freshwater/river fish, which means parasites. They only use saltwater fish that are wild caught because bacteria cannot thrive there. There is no such thing as "fresh salmon"
2. The kanji for sushi is two symbols, one meaning "fish", the other being "delicious"
3. They use this cup in the store that has a crack in it. Back in the day, these specific cups were only used by the palace/royalty, and ones with chips or imperfections were sent off to the common folk to be used. A clever crafter named Yamaguchi started making these cups with the crack so that all the common folk can use things that even the royals use.
Whilst obviously very costly, is a very intimate and unique journey through an array of sashimi and sushi with a master of the craft. The amount of sushi served up is very generous, and each piece was as good as any sushi/sashimi I've ever had anywhere. If you can spare the money, do it once in your lifetime.
Concierge was very helpful and responsive. I was able to enjoy the experience due to their help.
Great experience. The quality of seafood was impeccable
As expected, the Jiro experience was worth having. It is a little intimidating to enter the restaurant, but we were made comfortable after a few minutes by Jiro-san and his staff. We had the sushi+sashimi course and were not disappointed by the attention to detail and quality of ingredients. It's an experience I'd recommend to anyone at least once. Future travelers should be aware that the quantity of food is larger than you'd expect, so bring an appetite. And order the cold sake.
Perfection at every bite!
The best sushi in the world. Upon entry I was seated at a table and given fresh cold tea in the summer heat. At my reservation time I was sat at the bar. Jiro and his staff offered my drinks, and beer pairs well with sushi. I say and enjoyed as he and his staff prepared and perfectly described all there is to know about the sushi/sashimi they prepared. I was shocked at how well his English was. They know Japanese, Chinese (a little), and English. The staff was all super friendly and enjoyed conversing as we ate the most perfectly prepared fish you will ever eat. Upon concluding the meal, I was given a chance at a photo with Jiro, and a signed business card! It was a dining experience unlike any other. Simply perfection!
Perfect Meal, one of the best in my life.
