        Your friend just wanted to help to pay less ... a bit difficult to address !  Now, if you are looking for reasonable lunch at a sushi-yasan, in Ginza I recommend you sushi Taichi or sushi Ichi (one Michelin star), in Asakusa, sushi BentenYama Miyako sushi and in Shinjuku, sushi Takumi Tasuhiro (one star also), respectively with lunch at 2500yens, 3000yens, 3000yens,1800yens(chirashi sushi only).
