I am not concerned with price, atmosphere or other factors. I Would like to know what the most authentic Japanese restaurants in the Bay Area are. By "authentic" I mean authenticity in technique and good-faith in terms of ingredients. Places that use ingredients that are also found in Japan and do not compromise with stand-in ingredients (lemon is not yuzu). Places that use Japanese technique to highlight California's amazing produce and fish (places that do not fly fish in from Tsukiji would be preferred). Please mention in your answer if you have lived in or traveled to Japan.
