[Tokyo] The gourmet capitol city of Japan – Tokyo has once again earned the honours of having the largest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in city for its latest 2020 Michelin Guide.

However, two famous names were conspicuously not included in this edition – sushi restaurants Sukiyabashi Jiro Honten and Sushi Saito.

The Michelin Guide explained that this is because reservations in both restaurants have become unavailable to the general public.

The guide has included 464 restaurants and 34 hotels, with 11 restaurants receiving 3 Michelin stars. Japanese restaurant Kadowaki was promoted from 2 to 3 stars.

Inua produced by three-star Danish restaurant Noma, joined the two-star list for the first time.
