I tried the premium set with 7 sushi plus otoro. Overall the sushi is average in my opinion. Compared to tsukiji fish market, it's nothing closed. the place itself is quite luxurious high-end. Very nice for dine-in. It's located across the otaru canal.

I had the best sea urchin (uni) this trip in Hokkaido. It's so fresh and sweet. The sea urchin custard egg was also delicious. The otoro was very good which just melt in your mouth. I'll surely go back next time I visit Otaru.
