Restaurant Details
Asakusa is the historic downtown of Kyoto, where much of historic sushi cuisine was developed during the Edo period. This Michelin-starred sushiya carries the torch of this local legacy, presenting authentic Tokyo-style sushi for a very reasonable price. This means liberal use of red vinegar in the sushi rice, which is cooked over a charcoal grill — said to give it a moister consistency. The white vinegar more common nowadays is actually out of touch with tradition, as red vinegar only fell out of favor in post-war Japan because it was seen as a way to cover up poor-quality imported rice. No such worries here! Everything on offer is of the highest quality, so you can enjoy the original, authentic style of red vinegar sushi as it was meant to be. The omakase set-course meal includes these pieces of nigiri, alongside some non-sushi appetizers like grilled fish and savory egg custard. With only 10 seats at the counter and lunch prices which are hard to beat, you’d better book ahead if you want to sample this delicious, authentic sushi for yourself.
