This was not only the best sushi I had throughout Japan but also one of the best meals of my life.
We arrived at 5:00 am, having missed the Tuna auction. We waited for about an hour and a quarter. It was definitely worth the wait and honestly, it was part of the experience for us. The line was a mix of locals, including salary men and a famous Judo fighter who ended up seated beside us at breakfast, Japanese from other areas of Japan and foreigners from around the world. By the time we were finished at about 7:00 am we checked the line ant it had quadrupled from when we began so I imagine those arriving at that time had quite the wait.
We both ordered the larger Omakase experience. It was unbelievable. I think my favourite was the horse mackeral and obviously the otoro and uni but everything was wonderful. The chef in charge of our area was hilarious. He worked so quickly, like a true artist, but he also entertained us and made us feel like we were not just two people in a long line of people he would meet that day. Everything was so fresh and perfect. Others have commented on the price but I thought it was great value for the quality of fish and the types of fish presented. We left feeling incredibly satisfied.
