Grab your ticket to see the greatest (sushi) showman in action at his super famous Kitakyushu restaurant.

Restaurant Details

Donning an eccentric red bowtie which pops against the pure white of his chef’s outfit, Takayoshi Watanabe extends his arm theatrically towards the camera, a piece of sushi resting on his palm, and a playful yet sincere expression on his face. This is but one of the stage directions on the script at this Kitakyushu City restaurant, where Watanabe-san embraces dual roles as master chef and ringmaster. He is the third generation owner of this shop, which was first opened in 1964, however his — the most recent incarnation, has won Teruzushi nationwide fame. The entertainment value which he has woven into the dining experience has gained the restaurant a following among the social-media savvy gourmets of Japan, who post pictures of the showman holding up gigantic fresh fish with the stern gaze of a sumo, or posing menacingly with his gigantic katana-like knives. It’s not all about the visuals here though — the taste is also top-notch. Watanabe-san works closely with local fishermen and brokers to procure the freshest and biggest fish. Each ingredient has a unique story, which he proudly tells: whether a tale from the local docks, or the story of a journey from some far-flung corner of Japan. He also works with Fukuoka-based Shoubunsu Vinegar, who make a special blend of vinegar specifically for this restaurant. Teruzushi’s signature eel burgers are one of the unique highlights on the menu, served alongside a range of classic nigiri and regular fresh inventions from the mind of one of Japan’s most idiosyncratic sushi masters.
