On the southwest tip of Japan’s southern Kyushu island lies Kagoshima. This city has access to some of the best seafood in all of Japan, and so it naturally has some of the best sushi.
The top rated restaurant in the city is Sushisho Nomura, a reservation-only restaurant which specializes in local varieties of fish. Their portions are somewhat smaller than average, allowing you to enjoy a larger number varieties before becoming too full.
The definition in the small pieces is amazing: stacked and folded perfectly so that they’re even more dainty and appealing than the standard sushi of Osaka and Tokyo. It’s possible that top sushi establishments in the major cities will take note of the benefits of this serving style in the future.
Until then, the best place to enjoy it is at the source. If you find yourself in Kyushu, make sure you take the time to travel down to Sushisho Nomura.
