It's quite difficult to get a reservation since it's a three-star Michelin restaurant!

The location is about 1 km from Sanno Station, so it will take about 10 to 15 minutes by car.
There are 3 parking spaces next to the store.

The exterior of the store looks like an old folk house!
It feels like I took a trip to Kyoto ☆ lol
It's a long-established store that has been around for nearly 50 years.

The sushi rice is made with red vinegar and is cooked very hard so that it melts in your mouth! !
The vinegar is a little strong, but it has a mild taste.

The number of snacks was moderate, and I felt that the emphasis was on the nigiri ^^
All of the nigiri are truly impressive in taste...!

Although it is a small shop, it is very comfortable and the customer service from the owner and landlady was excellent.

It's difficult to make a reservation, but if you have another chance, you'll definitely want to visit this restaurant again! ! !


Red shellfish, chicken shellfish, and sea urchin marinated in vinegary miso

Chawanmushi of sea urchin from Rausu

Seasoned seafood with mullet roe

A snack that goes well with Japanese sake.

Nigiri from here

Is it red?
This is rich.

It's huge and has a rich flavor.

The contrast between the taste of the raw part and the cooked part in a gradation pattern.

Three tuna in a row. Exquisite.

It was big and greasy.

110kg tuna roll from Nagasaki
It has a strong taste.

Kanpyo roll

Thick fried egg with prawns

I really liked the sushi rice made with three types of red vinegar.
The contents were very delicious sushi, mainly nigiri.

I also liked the sake selection. The inside of the store has a small raised tatami room and is filled with the scent of the Showa era.


This is a great sushi restaurant!
How to add what you think is best for each,
I think they have a great eye for the ingredients themselves.
Due to the 3 Michelin star rating, it is difficult to make a reservation.
No wonder so many people still want to visit.
I'm happy that the price is a good value compared to other stores.
