One of the best in Tokyo


I chose the most reasonable course in a private room, and each item was delicious! It was a series of ️.

Sushi is certainly delicious, isn't it?

However, I was more impressed by the side dishes and soup than the sushi.

The last sushi is a dried gourd roll, but wouldn't other restaurants serve it the other way around? However, when I actually tasted it, I understood why, and it felt like I was receiving food from a different level.

Promise to come again with your companions.

Thank you for the meal.


Located on the 12th floor of a building facing the main street.
Ueno Station, Okachimachi Station, Ueno Hirokoji Station, etc.
It is close to each line station and has good access.
The restaurant has counter seats and multiple private rooms, making it easy for groups to use the restaurant, and the restaurant has also been used for dinner parties.
First of all, let's toast with beer and drink some Japanese sake.
The omakase menu we received is below.

⚫︎Crab chawanmushi
⚫︎ Bluefin tuna medium fatty tuna
⚫︎White squid
⚫︎Scallop and Yuba
⚫︎Ark shellfish
⚫︎Grilled food, it's cold
⚫︎Red meat pickles
⚫︎Small bowl (Ikura, Kinki, White shrimp)
⚫︎Red shrimp
⚫︎Ootoro grilled
⚫︎Conger eel
⚫︎Bean liver Nara-zukemaki
⚫︎Miso soup

The snacks and nigiri are served alternately and are served at a good pace.
The nigiri toppings are large and filling. I could really feel the deliciousness of each ingredient!
The medium fatty tuna that appeared first was melt-in-the-mouth.
My personal favorites are striped horse mackerel and mackerel. The red clams were also large and had a good texture. The golden sea bream has a nice seared skin.
Both the sushi rice and soy sauce had a strong overall flavor, but the toppings were also on par.
It's a sushi restaurant that can be used for a variety of occasions, with a relaxed atmosphere and easy access.
