An amazing experience start to finish. Had reservations on a weekday night for 9pm and every seat was full with locals. Definitely need to make reservations in advance here. Chef Shingo and his chefs english skills are serviceable, which is just a bonus, we all should learn Japanese really!

We were served over 32 courses of fresh seafood and small plates. I really enjoyed the sea grapes, otoro, ankimo and uni. The uni was really sweet and creamy. Made my week! After a certain point Chef Shingo will ask if you want more and you can ask for 1 or even 10 pieces more but these are extra.

Also tried a Chef recommended sake here and it was super smooth and had a great fragrance. Really matched with seafood well.

But the drawback is this meal will set you back at least 30k yen. The experience was excellent start to finish. Highly recommend if you want to try premium sushi in a humble, inviting environment.


Always a fun place to eat. Expect 30+ sushi over 90-120min. The ankimo is a sushi sho classic. Shingo-san is the best!


Takumi Shingo has an amazing omakase set dinner. We were introduced to several new kinds of sushi that we hadn't tried at other sushi restaurants like ebodai (butter fish), kawahagi (thread sail file fish), nishin (herring), and garoupa sashimi. This is a 9 seater restaurant so make reservations well ahead of time and come prepared on an empty stomach! We had more than 30 courses and truly enjoyed our meal.
