The life of a Michelin inspector is a grueling one, and we can’t imagine how they go about making sense of a city like Tokyo. But after its controversial landing in Japan two years ago, Michelin has toured the city once again and given three stars to eleven restaurants. That puts it above Paris in that realm (last year both cities were tied with ten three-star restaurants), and well above New York’s four three-star eateries. Tokyo is also, once again, the city with the most stars in general, with 261 (there are 42 two-star restaurants in the new edition, compared with New York’s six).
