Fugu dishes are available in selected sometimes hard to locate although locally popular (make resv early) establishments (with fugu chefs) in Dec-Jan. Only limited places sells the dishes after Jan. Recommend to call in advance for resv and to ascertain dish is available.

It is fine, intricately cut and tastes freshly exquisite in one of the best raw fish Japanese experience- sheer heavenly.

Ask around. Many expats living in Japan for decades or Japanese locals might not have tasted or yearned to try it.

In March last year, I stayed at Toyoko Inn Tokyo Shinjuku Kabuki-cho and I remember walking past this rstaurant with an aquarium full of fugu fish as I walk from the hotel to Shinjuku Station. Maybe you can give it a try.

There is a chain of reliable restaurants called Tettiri that has branches throughout the city. I've been before and it's always good.


Your hotel can help you to make reservations.
