The Three-Star Michelin Restaurants of Tokyo, Japan

Last week Michelin announced the 2012 stars for Tokyo, and sixteen restaurants in the immediate area of the metropolis (as well as Koan, in Shonan) earned three stars. This brings Japan's three-star total to thirty-two, edging out France by seven.

With even more proof of Japan's étoile dominance now public, it's time to take a look at the restaurants in Tokyo with Michelin's highest ranking. There are sushi temples (Saito, Sukiyabashi Jiro, Mizutani), kaiseki oases (Koju, Azabu Yukimura), perfection-obsessed specialists (7chome Kyoboshi for tempura, Usukifugu for pufferfish), decidedly French affairs (Quintessence, Joël Robuchon), and more. Here, mapped out, are sixteen places in Tokyo that will break the bank in the most sublime ways possible.
