Michelin is pleased to present the 2023 edition of the MICHELIN Guide Tokyo. 422 restaurants – 200 MICHELIN Starred and 222 Bib Gourmand – made it into the new selection, carefully crafted by the MICHELIN inspectors.

Among them, 2 new restaurants receive Two MICHELIN Stars, 16 new eateries are awarded One MICHELIN Star and 38 new establishments are highlighted with a Bib Gourmand. With 32 different types of cuisine represented – from international flavors to typical Japanese ones – this 16th edition dedicated to Japan’s capital city stands out for its diversity and authenticity.

“Once again this year, Tokyo's dining scene has been enriched by a diverse range of culinary categories and concepts. With 55 new restaurants receiving Two MICHELIN Stars, One MICHELIN Star or a Bib Gourmand in our selection, the 16th edition of the Guide perfectly reflects the dynamism of the city, as well as the never ceasing strive for excellence of its chefs. As a global cosmopolitan megalopolis, Tokyo is also known for its open-mindedness and its culinary contrasts, traditions rubbing shoulders with innovative food concepts and ancestral skills fusing with modern and international know how”, explained Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides.

“Meanwhile, the MICHELIN Green Star restaurants – to be highlighted as front-runners when it comes to a more sustainable approach to gastronomy – continue their efforts by sharing their virtuous ambitions with their teams and producers, and delivering their inspiring message to gourmets through their cuisine”, added Gwendal Poullennec.

In addition to these 2 new Two MICHELIN Star restaurants, 37 others maintained their level of merit in Tokyo.

All 12 Three MICHELIN Star restaurants located in Tokyo also kept their distinction in this year’s selection.

With 12 restaurants maintaining their MICHELIN Green Star, Tokyo continues to demonstrate how local chefs and teams continue to put sustainability at the heart of their concepts. The MICHELIN Green Star, which is awarded to the restaurants within the MICHELIN Guide selection that stand at the forefront of a more sustainable approach to gastronomy, aims to raise awareness both within the industry and with all foodies, by highlighting inspiring philosophies and initiatives.
