While many contemporary sushi shops are placing more and more effort into extravagant appetizers, at Ichiyanagi in Ginza, the focus is firmly upon top class nigiri. The omakase meal here is a celebration of the most important forms of sushi, served with firm rice that’s warmer than usual.
Kazuya Ichiyanagi was born to a restaurateur father in Chiba, and only decided to become a sushi chef in his twenties. He started working in Ginza and gained extensive experience in this area, famous for sushi, before joining Ichiyanagi at its old location in Hotel Seiyo Ginza, which has since closed.
The atmosphere in his shop has a more laid back feel than some of the other shops in the area, which can seem overly austere at times. There are no strict procedures to observe, nor any awkward silences. Really, Kazuya doesn’t demand anything of you besides your enjoyment.
This is all but guaranteed considering you’ll be served some of the best fatty tuna in Ginza, and some inventive dishes such as anago nigiri with citrus and salt.
