“Great sushi in Otaru”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This restaurant is located just across the road from Otaru canal. We were just looking for a place to eat and found this restaurant by chance. The restaurant looks nice from the outside so that's why we chose it. I had Sushi set which was very fresh and delicious. My friend was very happy with his fried chicken and tempura. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice place to eat in Otaru.
See my photos guys:-)

“Good location but costly”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Just across Masazushi Zenan is the tourist info centre and the canal. There's no set menu for individual at lunch time as mentioned by another reviewer. One sushi platter of about 9-10 pieces will set you back by 3000+ yen. Taste quite ordinary to me. We need some greens but ordering the salad is a wrong choice as seasoning does not go well with it.

“Good Sushi”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Masazushi is perhaps one of the better knowned sushi place in Otaru.
We ate at Masazushi twice, dinner at Masazushi honten and lunch at Masazushi Zenan.
Masazushi Zenan is the branch outlet, fronting the canal and is just beside Furukawa hotel.
Sushi here is pretty good and there is a good value set lunch - "Hanamasu", 9 pieces for sushi for Y1580.
If you happen to be in this area, drop in for lunch at Masazushi Zenan. Order the lunch set, its cheaper. We ate at Masazushi honten (15 mins walk away from otaru canal) during dinner and it cost us close to Y10000 for dinner.

“Decent”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Sushi here is good but not mind blowing. You can get better at Nijo fish market. It was however a great location after a walk along the canal to catch a glimpse of the snow sculptures. There are window seats that face the canal

“Excellent Sushi in Otaru, Japan”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I had dinner here with 5 colleagues and our Japanese host. The sushi was excellent and extremely fresh and prepared right in front of you, the fatty tuna and the scallops were fantastic. The tempura was also very good. Service was excellent.

If you get time visit the fish market in Otaru!
