The world's best sushi restaurant lose all three Michelin stars immediately

Sukiyabashi Jiro in the japanese capital Tokyo is probably the world's best, most famous and feted sushirestaurant.

Now, it has lost all its three Michelin stars immediately.

maybe You know the restaurant from the Netflix documentary 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi' follows the owner Jiro Ono, who since 1965 has driven his small shop in Tokyo's metro.

There is only space for 10 people in the restaurant, which since 2007 has had three Michelin stars.

2007 was the first year, the Michelin guide had a Tokyo version, and Sukiyabashi Jiro is the only one of the three restaurants in the japanese capital, which has had three stars in the famous guide since the entry into the world's largest city.

But in the latest edition of the Michelin guide is Sukiyabashi Jiros three stars evaporated.

Something more international media has noticed.

And now you probably gradually to be curious about the reason for the sudden drop from the Michelin-starred peaks.

It should not be found in the fact that 94-year-old Jiro Ono eddikemættede rice or massaged octopus with a has been markedly inferior.

It is due, instead, to the Michelin guide no longer considers the restaurant as being available to the common people.

It has been virtually impossible for people who are not well-known, has connections, or otherwise can get his leg in, to get a table at the restaurant.

"We believe that Sukiyabashi Jiro do not receive bookings from the public, which makes that it is no longer on our radar," says a spokesperson from the Michelin guide, and elaborates:

"It's probably not quite true to say that the restaurant has lost its stars. It is just no longer relevant to our guide. Michelin's policy is to introduce restaurants where everyone can eat."

there is evidence to suggest that representatives from the Michelin guide, has been stopped inside at Sukiyabashi Jiros website.

Here you can read that 'the restaurant is currently having challenges with to accept reservations'.

at the same time, the fact that one does not see the situation changing in the near future, as the restaurant, which in the past has fed Barack Obama, japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, the singer Katy Perry and actor Hugh Jackman, as mentioned, only has 10 seats.

If you need a ride to Tokyo and still want to experience a bit of Jiro-taste, so have you, however, still have the opportunity to book a table at søsterrestauranten, as Jiros younger son driver.

Here is the concept the same, even though it may 'settle' with two Michelin-stars.

on the whole, it should be an option to get a Michelin experience, if you need a ride to Tokyo.

the City is the number one worldwide when it comes to stars in the with 226 restaurants with stars - 11 with three stars.
