If you wanted to have "wild fugu" it might be a little bit out of season. However farmed Fugu is very common and much cheaper than wild one. To recommend the place I need to know the budget. Starting around 5,000yen till 30,000 yen more or less. Depends of the quality and the place.

Ciao Paolo, probabilmente sei italiano? Well, if you really wanted to have high end, I would recommend Yamadaya-Nishiazabu. The place itself is so sophisticated and service as well. For the best fugu ever you should go to the place Kyushu located south part of Japan. However Yamadaya is good enough. I used to live just near by.

Purtroppo non avro il tempo di andare a Kyushu! Per Yamadaya si puo prenotare un tavolo in Inglese? Grazie Kazuko!

Capisco, è normale. Per Yamada si può prenotare in inglese. Se non mi sbaglio anche tre stellato da guida Michelin. Ho controllato loro website ma stranamente non dimostra. Allora bocca a lupo!
