It was my first time to go there.
The sushi itself isn't that great, but I was told that it was difficult to make reservations, so I was grateful for the experience.
Honestly, I felt like the world was different.
It was a great experience as it was all things I had never eaten before.
I don't usually drink sake, but I got really excited and ended up drinking too much.
I received some Japanese sake that is hard to come by, and I would like to drink it again.
It can't be described in words, so please come and visit us.
I want to go again.


First visit to Sushi Hijikata, located on Nishiki 3-chome in downtown Nagoya.
A friend of mine took me to a restaurant that requires reservations, so it's hard to get a reservation, so I went there with him.
I went for the 8:30pm class.
The inside of the store is small with only 6 seats at the counter, but each seat at the counter is spacious so you can relax.
First of all, I tried Shinojima's octopus, and at this point I was convinced that this restaurant was delicious.
Next was the tuna fry, which I think is the best topping I've had so far.
After that, we were served cutlass fish, followed by nigiri.
Black-throated fish, sea bream, conger eel, sea urchin, tuna, fatty tuna, prawns, etc. are all delicious.
All the toppings go well with the red vinegar sushi rice.
It's sweet and deep, and I think it's the best sushi I've ever eaten.
I'm originally a meat eater, but I was able to appreciate the deliciousness of sushi once again.
The miso soup and pudding made with seaweed were also excellent.
The prices are high, but I think it's worth it.
Please go if you can make a reservation.


This is the number one sushi restaurant I've ever eaten at.
It's really delicious.

The general's level of customer service is also outstanding.

His attentiveness, conduct, and demeanor are all refined, and this is reflected in all of his nigiri dishes.

This is a popular restaurant that is difficult to get reservations for, so we recommend making reservations early.

I'll be visiting again.
The menu for the day is below.


·Japanese sake
fourteenth generation

Broad beans from Kagoshima prefecture
Shrimp from Mashike, Hokkaido
Tuna fry
cod milt
Isobe-yaki flat shellfish
Grilled swordfish with salt

・White shrimp
Just the right stickiness and flavor
Excellent fat and ripeness
・Medium Toro
・Kuruma prawns
Although it has a strong scent and oil, it does not fight
・Sea urchin
·conger eel
Looks solid but melts in your mouth
・Miso soup with seaweed from Lake Hamana

The nigiri is consistently impressive, but the Juyondai I received this time was on a whole other level of deliciousness.
It was a miraculous sake with a delicate taste that I still can't forget.
It almost feels presumptuous to express it poorly.
I think the level of Japanese sake has increased tremendously in recent years.
It was a combination of that sake and Hijikata-san's sushi.
I feel like I almost ate with my eyes closed this time.
It's not something I get to experience on a regular basis, so I was filled with gratitude lol.
