Jiro Sukiyabashi@Tokyo ★★★

Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Sushi of a Lifetime to Die for... 2 Michelin Stars by the son of Jiro. Each piece carefully hand-crafted with every attention to detail possible with the freshest fish from the seafood market. Speechless. Full Omakase with Sashimi was about 30,000 yen ($250 USD) per person. There's so much food that I think just the sushi without the appetizer will be enough.
