An omakase experience that you cannot miss in Tokyo. All the dishes are just phenomenal. I didn't try the wine pairing but should have it tried next time. Price is reasonable and restaurant is just few minutes away from JR station. Highly recommended.


We decided to have our last Japan dinner in this place and it was the best decision. Sake pairing is worth it. The chef is gracious and communicates in English and even some Spanish. The scallop nigiri, the shallot and tuna handroll and the “Japanese risotto” (not gonna spoil this one) were incredible.


chef can speak good English. he worked in LA/Santa Barbara for 2 years. English speaking foreigners no need to worry. unlike many local sushi restaurants, this one is not intimidating.

he explained every dish and every sake pairing in detail. he incorporated some fusion elements in his courses. once you are done with the sushi course, you get placed in a separate room to quietly enjoy your dessert.

his place is up in the second floor in a nondescript building 3 min walk from to the train station, don't miss it.


Best omakase I’ve ever had.

18 courses for a little over 15,000 yen - what a deal! The sushi was brilliant and included a few courses which were the creation of the chef and were the ones I enjoyed the most. If you are used to typical omakase, you would enjoy this experience where you get to try new things!

My favorites was the whitefish spring roll, bluefin tuna, and dessert course. But everything was absolutely amazing and well thought out.

Chef is super friendly and speaks english! Reservation is easy via tabelog (their ig is @sushi_kunimitsu).


The best sushi restaurant during our 2 week stay in Japan. The products used were of very good quality. An excellent food pairing with different types of sake. If we come back to Tokyo, we will 100% return.
