Good to have an ultimate experience in Kanazawa. Local fresh seafoods and special Technics.


A sushi restaurant located in the center of Katamachi, said to be the busiest district in Hokuriku, a 1-minute walk from the scramble intersection. When you tell a taxi that you want to scramble, they understand immediately.
There is no parking lot, but there are many coin parking lots nearby.

The owner was trained at the famous Hokuriku restaurant Taihei Sushi (currently closed), and together with his wife, they provide friendly hospitality with excellent service.
The way the nigiri and snacks are served, including steamed Nodoguro in sake, is both fresh and delicious.

Although there are many locals here, it is also a wonderful shop where people traveling to Hokuriku can enjoy local products and sake to their heart's content.


From Taihei Sushi
Inherit that taste.
You can enjoy your meal in a relaxed manner at the very spacious counter. The proprietress' fast-paced service is also great.
