One of my favorite experiences so far. The food was exquisite - quality, taste, presentation were all first class. This place is a hidden gem! I‘d definitely come here again.


I was brought here by my wife.

I guess that's because my wife and I watched it broadcast on Nara TV and talked about wanting to go there, so I guess he was concerned about that.

I had a reservation visit at 17:00 and there was no answer.

It's a 8,000 yen course with a separate drink.

We started with the sashimi, and enjoyed the well-balanced nigiri, which were both light and rich.

All sushi is hand-made and of high quality.

It was a delicious 2 hours.

10,000 yen per person is too cheap for drinking beer and sake.

I will definitely come again


It's a very stylish shop.
It's perfect for a date.

⬜︎Lunch 4,500 yen course

Sunday lunch, 6 seats at the counter, it was full.
Is it because the restaurant has a nice atmosphere that you don't have to worry about your neighbors even when the restaurant is full? For some reason, I feel calm when I sit down.
Is the lighting good? ?

4,500 yen and another 8,000 yen? There was a course, and 4500 yen was more than enough.
I think the prices and course settings are a blessing, probably because there are a lot of customers who are elderly or just want something tasty. I'm also happy because I want to enjoy alcohol.
I think I went back to the beginning and had bonito, nigiri for 8, chawanmushi, dried gourd rolls, and a bowl.
Squid, sweet shrimp, and fish! ! ! It was very delicious.
Also, the wasabi that came with the returned bonito was very delicious. The texture of the bonito is so fine that it easily dissolves in soy sauce, and even a small amount brings out the flavor of the bonito.

I'm happy to have a glass of wine with bubbles, red and white.
On the day I visited, a rare 1000ml Jill Vanner was available.
Rather than focusing on sashimi or desserts, I want to enjoy sushi! It is recommended for anyone who wants.
I'll visit you again. Thank you for the meal.


“Naramachi Hanako” is a sushi restaurant that just opened on August 1, 2022🍣It is run by two sisters. The owner is a talented person who was trained overseas and at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
It's served as a course, so it's not just sushi but also elaborate appetizers.

?Each piece of red vinegar sushi is exquisite.
There are only seven seats at the counter, so you can watch the food being prepared and served right in front of you. I'm glad that you can enjoy it with your eyes too ♩
Only those who have made a reservation for private use can sit on the second floor after their meal. The second floor is a spacious and luxurious space. If you are interested, please contact the store ☺️💕

・Lunch course ¥4500
