Sushi Mitsukawa Reviews

Phenomenal experience!!! I emailed in advance asking if they could accommodate a vegetarian and they created a whole separate tasting menu for me that was entirely veggie based. My partner had the regular menu and loved it too. A truly unique experience that is worth the price. Each bite is prepared right in front of you with such creativity and care. If you are looking to splurge this is definitely the place to do it. Reservations are necessary as it’s a tiny restaurant. Loved everything about it.


One of the best sushi omakase I've had - very fresh seafood from hokkaido and extensive menu. House sake was great too.


【Eating in Niseko: Sushi Mitsukawa】

Niseko Park Hyatt has many restaurant options;
Among them is "Sushi Mikawa" from Kanazawa.

Sushi Mikawa's main restaurant is in Kanazawa, with one Michelin star.
Google reviews are also good, definitely give it a try.

The Niseko Park Hyatt branch is independent,
Although it is in a hotel, the reservation and checkout systems are separate.

Sushi Mikawa cooks two rounds of dinner every day, and the business is very good.
I made a reservation for my subordinates before I checked in.
If you don’t book until check-in, you may not be able to book!

The chef who received us looked quite young.
I learned art at the Kanazawa main store, and surprisingly my English is very good.
Each type of sushi can be named in Japanese and English.
I think I must have deliberately studied and checked the information.
After all, 70% of Park Hyatt’s guests are from Europe and the United States.

Besides the language being friendly to foreigners, the sushi is also friendly.

The vinegar rice is not too sour and is slightly warm.
The fish is of good quality and the seasoning is not too heavy.
The processing is fresh and moderate, with or without ripening.

Personally, I think the tuna series are handled pretty well.
Especially at the end, I used my big belly to make scallion tuna rolls.
Rice, fish, green onions and seasonings, the ingredients are harmoniously blended,
The flavors are very crowd-pleasing and a great finish.
I also like shrimp, sea urchin and shellfish.

Overall, Sushi Mikawa is a very friendly sushi restaurant.
Sushi lovers will not be disappointed.
Even people who don’t eat sushi often can get started easily!


I don't usually go to counter sushi restaurants, but since Mr. Mitsukawa took care of me at Park Hyatt Niseko, I've been here three times, once at the main store in Kanazawa and twice here.

I was analyzing why I liked Mr. Mitsugawa here, and I think it's mostly like this.

・Carefully prepared blue fish
Even at so-called counter sushi restaurants, there are many restaurants where the fish is not prepared properly, with the smell of green fish remaining or the vinegar being too strong, but Mr. Mitsukawa handles these issues perfectly. If you want to eat delicious blue fish, I highly recommend it. Depending on the season, blue fish may not be available, so please ask the owner.

・Don't deny soy sauce
This is also a counter sushi restaurant, but there are some restaurants that treat soy sauce with a lot of hostility. However, in Mr. Mitsukawa's case, he is more concerned with how to coordinate the soy sauce with the ingredients. I think everyone has their own preferences in this regard, but I personally like soy sauce, so I agree with Mr. Mitsukawa.

I especially sympathized with the importance they place on soy sauce. If it's a really delicious restaurant, I think soy sauce will be respected as part of the culture.

It's only available on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, but you can get a lunch nigiri for around 10,000 yen per person, so why not start there first? Lastly, although it is possible to order separately after the course is over, the tamagoyaki is recommended as a palate cleanser.
