Omakase Etiquette?

czecher | Jan 2, 2009 10:15 AM

My wife and I are going to Tokyo and Kyoto this May. We're planning on going to Sukiyabashi Jiro and Sushi Mizutani. We both love sushi but don't really like Uni (Sea Urchin) and Ankimo (Monkfish liver). Is it possible to order omakase and ask the chef not to include these items without getting thrown out?
I also read that at Sukiyabashi Jiro they don't speak english. What's the best way to order....write it down in Japanese, learn a few Japanese words?
