Sushi dilemma in Tokyo

Please help me solve my sushi dilemma :-)

In 2009, I have had a very nice experience at Kanesaka sushi. I found their cheaper menu to be a nice introduction to the high-quality sushi world. I was thrilled with the 3 different cuts of tuna. I was taken away by the sea urchin. However, now the circumstances have changed.

I will be in Tokyo in May with my parents, who have not yet been in Japan, ergo, I surmise, have yet to taste their first really good sushi (please, US people, don't take offence, it's my personal opinion). I'm sure that Kanesaka would be nice for them, especially as we don't speak or read Japanese and my parents have learned English later in their lives and are not absolutely proficient.

However, I would like to try something more adventurous than tuna and salmon. I would like to try the things I can eat only in Japan - weird preparations of fish, different fish I might have never tried before, etc. I was fortunate (or maybe unfortunate) enough to drop on Oishinbo and read a bit about Japanese cuisine, so I am looking for more intricate, complicated, interesting and adventurous sushi than very good tuna and salmon.

So what would you recommend for me in order to get an omakase experience suitable for beginners at the same time as for a little advanced and at the same time in English?

Thank you very much for all your help!
