Pretty large nigiri and sour, punchy shari from a Jiro student. Excellent in my book.

[Anniversary lunch]
This is a restaurant run by a general who trained at Sukiyabashi Jiro.
The crispy rice, hearty cuts of ingredients, and calm and soft atmosphere in the restaurant (private counters are used) will leave you with a very high level of total satisfaction.

All the employees were warm and like family, and I was able to enjoy my meal in a calm atmosphere that didn't make me feel nervous.

About 5 minutes walk from Omotesando Station.
Surprised by the long lines at Amanda Kotan, a bakery that has expanded from Fukuoka to Tokyo.
The place we visited was an elegant building typical of Aoyama.

It's been a while since I visited a high-end sushi restaurant in Aoyama.
Should I have been more fashionable?
(Many of the guests were also wonderful...)

The store is on the second floor, but some elevators don't stop at the second floor, so beginners may get confused.

The course we received this time (Nigiri only 27,000 yen)
flounder
littermate
Cuttlefish
Striped horse mackerel
lean meat
Medium Toro
fatty tuna
small skin
Chicken shellfish
sardine
Prawns
Bonito
clam
small pillar warship
sea ​​urchin
conger eel
Wasanbon balls
scroll
Miso soup with sea cucumber
melon

This is a restaurant run by the owner who trained at Sukiyabashi Jiro for a long time.
It's been a long time since I've had a grip with such a beautiful shape.
It looked consistently shining!

A nigiri-only course for lunch.
Both the toppings and the ashes are the perfect size. I think it will feel quite large for women.
He asked me several times if the size of the ashes was a problem.

And the shari has a strong vinegar and salty taste. It's sharp.

Tuna is quite mature. just in time?

The prawns, straw-grilled bonito, and castella-like balls were excellent.
