Food is perfect as our expectation of Edomae sushi. Some dishes are the best in our experience ex. Ikura, aged white fishes...
The only downside is the tempo of serving that is too fast. Maybe we were too polite to feedback but I will do when to visit again. Otherwise, nothing to complain but enjoyable.


Great place for sushi. A bit pricey. No photos allowed :(


Behind Ginza Mitsukoshi, next to the curry Nile restaurant. A long-established store that has been in business for over 80 years. A style that has become rare these days: having as much of what you like as you like. You can enjoy the so-called Ibushi Gin Edomae-style sushi. This is a restaurant that people who are used to eating sushi and really like it should go to.


It was my first time visiting ^*^
I was a parent and child, and I heard a lot of stories!
It was friendly and comfortable.
I wanted a little more topping for the sushi, but it was delicious.
Thank you for your wonderful time.
