Michelin Guide Tokyo, Yokohama & Shônan 2013: Three starred restaurant list


El guía de Michelin de restaurante 2013 de la zona Tokyo, Yokohama y Sônan (una zona de prifectura Kanagawa) sale el día 1 de diciembre, 2012. Sin embargo, hoy me he enterado los restaurantes de tres estrellas en esta zona así que pongo la lista aquí para la gente que quiera visitar a estos restaurantes. Comparado con el año pasado, no entró ningún nuevo restaurante a la categoría de tres estrellas y esta vez son 14 restaurantes en total (2 restaurantes menos que el año anterior) Son restaurantes caros pero si puedes ir merece la pena 🙂 Lo raro es que algunos de estos restaurantes ni siquiera tienen su propia página web y la mayoría no tienen paginas en inglés así que he buscado links de varias páginas donde puedas tener una idea de como son estos restaurantes. Cuando visitéis a estos restaurantes ya me contarais como os han parecido sus platos 🙂

Michelin Guide 2013 Tokyo, Yokohama and Shônan (an area of Kanagawa prefecture) will be released soon on Dec 1, 2012. However, I’ve just found the list of these three stared restaurants for 2013 today so I’m going to put the list here so that you can visit these restaurants. Compared with last year, no new restaurant has entered to the tree star category. This time we have 14 restaurants in total (2 restaurants less than last year) These restaurants are expensive but if you can they are worth trying 🙂 The strange thing is that some of them even don’t have their web page and the majority don’t have English pages, so I tried to put links of pages where you can have an idea of these places. When you visit these places tell me how was your experience 🙂
