When it comes to Michelin-starred restaurants in Japan, we have a unique perspective to share. While many people consider these establishments to be pretentious and overpriced, our personal experience has been quite different. Unlike Michelin-starred restaurants outside of Japan, where prices can soar into the thousands of dollars, our meals in Japan have been much more affordable, even at the one of the most famous restaurants in the world, Sukiyabashi Jiro. In fact, we’ve enjoyed a Michelin-starred meal in Japan for only $65 per person..

At Touch of Japan, we believe that Michelin-starred restaurants in Japan offer incredible value for their level of service, ambiance, and, of course, the amazing food. That’s why we’ve included both 1-star, 2-star, and 3-star restaurants in our guide. But we’re not stopping there. Our intention is to expand our coverage to include Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants, which offer good quality, good value cooking, and Michelin Green Star restaurants, which are committed to sustainability.

It’s true that there are Michelin-starred restaurants that fit the stereotype of being tourist traps or overpriced. However, our experiences in Japan have shown that these restaurants are the exception, not the rule. We have personally enjoyed many of the Michelin-starred locations we’ve included in Touch of Japan, and we believe that our readers will too. So if you’re looking for an unforgettable culinary experience in Japan, don’t hesitate to try out one of these world-renowned restaurants.
