Lovely, lovely experience.
Despite us not being Japanese speakers, the service staff tried their very best to accommodate and communicate with us.
The sushi here is straightforward and unfussy, unlike the edomae style. I highly recommend asking for the Una Gyu and Negi Toro hand rolls. We were in the 3.30pm seating so the general was not serving, but when we left he came out and bowed to see us off!


Seriously, this place gave me the most beautiful sushi experience ever.
They say Jiro of the East and Yasuke of the West so you have to know someone who is already a Jouren of the restaurant to make a reservation.

Taisho, Morita -San is 87 years old but his sushi still superb and vibrant, not to mention his friendliness which is rare to find in these legitimate sushi cuisines.


Spectacular, but NOT for newbies.

I can't recommend enough being familiar with local sushi to appreciate this place to the fullest. Master Chef Marita runs a tight ship, and his staff are quick and efficient in delivering the freshly made portions out to the ever-fully packed restaurant. We were asked up front if we had any allergies and we accepted the recommended sake (which I also urge you do, too).

Two of us ate and drank for 22,000 yen. For a special occasion and beautiful sushi from a master chef, this is well worth the price, and considerably cheaper than Otome.
