By Elaine Lies TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are due to have dinner on Wednesday, bumping elbows at the counter of a tiny basement sushi restaurant run by an octogenarian chef. Sources close to Abe told Japanese media the prime minister thought a meal at "Sukiyabashi Jiro," a venerable establishment in Tokyo's bustling Ginza shopping district, would be a good way to build trust. The restaurant, with just 10 seats but three Michelin stars, is considered one of the world's best sushi restaurants. Obama will take a stool at the narrow wooden counter with Abe shortly after arriving in Japan on a state visit.
