A little removed from the hustle and bustle of central Tokyo, you’ll find this Michelin star sushi restaurant tucked away in residential Setagaya. It’s run by the third generation owner — a native of the Kyodo area, where this shop has operated since 1937.
He offers the same quality you would get in the inner city for a far lower price. Kiraku even uses the same fish as its city-center competitors, sourced from Toyosu Market. Don’t imagine this is some remote location either: Kyodo can be reached in just 20 minutes from Shibuya or Shinjuku!
The sushi itself is classic Tokyo, drawing on the Edomae traditions of the city’s sushi culture. This means some of the fish is marinated instead of being served totally fresh, like gizzard shad. A blend of white and red vinegar is used to season the rice, giving a richer, deeper flavor.
When you enter through the doors, you’ll be greeted by an atmospheric modern space, with a light wooden counter and dark toned walls. Take a seat, choose from a la carte or set-course ordering, and prepare for one of the best sushi meals you’re ever likely to have.
