anyone has recently visited Shun? Saw that they just reopen but seem like they lost their accolade and score due to temp closure last year so it may be a good time to attempt for seats

Reservations seem as difficult as ever.

The people that keep going there aren't really going because of their accolades and tabelog scores.

Thanks both! Sound like a low chance for first timer to get a booking then.

TableAll just released over 50 seats for Namba Hibiya for this week to next week. Bookable with foreign number only though

The seats via TableAll are all at the small gaijin subcounter ie you will be surrounded with other foreigners. Namba-san will serve the subcounter once he has finished serving the main counter.

I don't see what's the issue with the gaijin subcounter. You are still served by namba-san. If you really want to be at a place with all locals, you would have chosen a sushiya off-the-beaten-track.

Japanese guests also dine at the subcounter (and overseas guests are welcomed at the main counter). The course is exactly the same and @guest said, all the nigiri are served by Namba-san. It's night and day compared with any "subcounter" experience at any of the other top sushi restaurants in Tokyo. You might even strike up a conversation (in English) with another foodie! That said, the TableAll page says "Nanba omakase course at main counter by Nanba san" and I would totally understand people thinking they'd been shunted away with the other non Japanese-guests so TableAll should make it clear exactly which counter it is, especially when they're charging another 15k. If it matters to you, the 1pm start will definitely be the subcounter. 12pm start most likely main counter. Not sure about dinner start times but could be a similar pattern. (Confirm with TableAll if you want to be sure). In any case, Namba-san performs better at lunch.

Thank you for the clarification @thetokyogourmet. I did get the 1pm slot and IIRC it was still stated as "main counter". I would have preferred the experience of a main counter for the marked up price I am paying though (it did feel abit stigmatizing tbh), but it wasn't all too bad to say the least.

Hi all, does anyone know how long in advance we can call to book Kurosaki? And has anyone been to their private counter? Thank you

Anybody try Hakunei(白寧) or the newly opened Kibun? Both look like interesting new French options in Tokyo.

Been to Hakunei twice and will post a full review soon. Will wait a bit longer for Kibun to settle in before going.

I don't know if anyone can answer this, but is there a recommended place to eat at after a day at DisneySea? We plan to leave Disney at around 7pm of so and find something in Tokyo to eat. Anything that is easyish to get to after a day at disney? Maybe a sushi omakase spot or something more casual is okay. Thanks!

@guest for most people the only they want to do is going home and resting after a day at Disney.

You could try Unagi Hashimoto (5 mins from Tokyo Station, LO 8pm). Chiba Takaoka does an 8pm/8:30 seating though I didn't think it was special.
