Incredible place. Food is amazing. Menu is in Japanese only but they’ll translate it for you. Recommend the fugu and grilled eel.


We usually have family dinners here when visiting Japan. This place is superb for fresh sashimi! They keep the fish in the tank which you can see from out front of the restaurant. There are bigger upstairs rooms that are great for a group gathering. This most recent trip we had some fresh anago and tako off grilled. That was great as well as everything else we had. If you dine upstairs be careful as the stairs are quite steep.


It's difficult to make reservations at this restaurant, so I made a reservation for a friend.
Anyway, the seafood was extremely fresh, and the sashimi platter, as well as the crispy live octopus and conger eel grilled over charcoal, went perfectly with the sake.
The sake lineup was extensive, with recommended brands lined up one after another, and everyone was in a good mood by the time they left the store. lol
It's been a while since I've eaten sea squirt, but it didn't have a surprising odor, so I think it's rare to be able to eat something this fresh in Tokyo.
The charcoal fire can be quite stinky, so we recommend that you wear clothes that don't get smelly.
