Absolutely incredible!

I took my partner here for his birthday dinner and this meal was memorable. 33 courses and small bites, alcohol included, and incredibly friendly staff. Even though we didn’t speak much Japanese, they made us feel included and welcome, making sure we knew what we were eating, how it was prepared, and how to eat it. Great sake recommendations to pair with the food. This was an experience like no other!


Great service to go with great food. My girlfriend and I tried the omakase lunch course. The meticulous process of preparing each piece of sushi is shown to you. Every piece was satisfactory with a translated menu book explaining which ingredients were used.

The restaurant is very pleasant, with good air conditioning and nice interiors. The service was very overwhelming. Wonderful experience from a very experienced chef. I highly recommend to visit here.


As a foreigner who doesn't speak any Japanese, I can recommend this place for anyone trying to get an authentic omakase experience in Tokyo. The staff used visual aids and a book with short English descriptions to help us understand the menu and guide us through the experience. Some of them spoke just enough English as well. The quality of food was very good. The location is unassuming with no signage, but is obvious enough if you find your way there via Google Maps. We were lucky enough to get seats on a weekday, but reservations are recommended. For pricing reference, our bill was ¥65,000 for two people.
