Ordering in Non English Sushi Restaurant in Tokyo

droch | May 18, 2013 09:20 AM

Hi all-

I am going to Tokyo next week and have made a reservation at a small sushi restaurant called Tsuruhachi in Shinbashi. The concierge at my hotel advised me that there is no english spoken at the restaurant. I have seen on other threads that one suggestion to deal with this is to simply bring a note written in Japanese that says you want the chef's choice and how much money you want to spend. I can't seem to find those threads any more. Does anyone know if that really is a culturally appropriate solution? If so, can you let me know the best way to say it?

Thanks very much.
