Tokyo restaurants while traveling with Dad who does not eat raw fish?

ah6tyfour | Mar 31, 201502:45 PM

I was planning on traveling to Tokyo alone this summer and was going to have my concierge book me for Sushi Sho, Sushi Iwa, Den, and Ryugin.

However, I decided to take my parents on vacation with me, which presents an interesting conundrum. My mom and I love raw seafood in all forms. My dad will not eat anything uncooked.

Any ideas on restaurants that can somehow make this work? We'll spend time getting udon, katsu, tempura, etc, but I'd like to work in some nice meals as well. Worst case, I'm sure my parents wouldn't mind going somewhere else while I go to a place to have a premium sushi experience. And I assume going to Tsukiji fish market will allow my mom and I to buy sushi while my dad picks up other grilled items?

And I know it has been asked to death, but I'm 1 month away from my trip. If I had time for only one sushi dinner by myself, where would I go? I was going to choose Sushi Sho, but that was when I knew I could go somewhere different every night. With just one chance, I want to make it count. Maybe try for Sawada?

Thanks for helping with this difficult request!
