Obama visits Tokyo’s most exclusive restaurant.


It does not get any more unique as: U.S. President Barack Obama has his visit to Japan with a dinner at the legendary Sukiyabashi Jiro sushi restaurant in Tokyo. The local 87-year-old Jiro Ono has an excellent reputation. Only ten guests can be accommodated. A meal typically costs more than 200 Euros. The “Dear Michelin Guide,” has awarded three stars. Among connoisseurs, it is considered one of the best restaurants in the world. To get an reservation is almost impossible. However, for a U.S. president, an exception was made. Obama and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe greeted each other on Wednesday night in front of the basement restaurant. Additionally, on board were the U.S. ambassadors to Japan, Caroline Kennedy, and the National Security Advisor Susan Rice.
