Family Sushi Nigiri Iccho!
If you would like to taste an authentic sushi at a reasonable price, this is where we recommend! If you sit on the counter seat, you can watch skilled sushi chef making sushi just in front of you and you may be astonished by the technique. The price of sushi is quite reasonable, but they are all fresh and have a delicate flavor that spread in your mouth richly. Since their side dishes are also tasty, it is worth trying other menus in this sushi restaurant.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I surely enjoyed the fresh sushi and their sincere Omotenashi, the hospitality. Sushi chef and staff were very friendly and kind. My personal favorite was Dashimaki-tamago, Japanese omelet, as it was so soft and melted like a snow when I put it in my mouth. If you are around Nijo Castle or Toji Temple, please visit there!
You can enjoy California roll that you can barely see in Japan! Other than the delicious taste of sushi, Dashimaki-tamago was fluffy and very tasty.
1Must Eat !
Sushi set / ¥660
If you would like to taste sushi at a reasonable price, this is what you should order! 5 pieces of sushi, sushi rolls and Inari sushi come on the plate. My personal favorite was Inari sushi which is wrapped with sweet deep-fried tofu. The juicy and sweet deep-fried tofu went perfectly well with vinegared rice put inside. It is quite cheap in terms of the quantity and quality of sushi!
Jo-nigiri set
2Must Eat !
Jo-nigiri set / ¥1,380
This is a very authentic sushi with miso soup. All the fish are very fresh and they went well with vinegared rice. My personal favorite was a shrimp as it was very mild and the sweet taste lasted long in my mouth. Especially during the winter, it is good to have a hot miso soup as it makes your body warm. There are 9 pieces of sushi that are put on the special sushi plate.
Dragon roll
3Let's Try !
Dragon roll / ¥600
You may be familiar with this kind of sushi, but it is hardly seen in Japan. Fresh water eel, avocado and lettuce are rolled inside and sweet sauce is put on them. This sweet sauce and eel match well and the taste with soy sauce stimulates your appetite. If you miss the taste of American sushi, please visit Nigiriiccho!
4Let's Try !
Dashimaki-tamago / Half size ¥290
You may be surprised with this fluffy omelet! This is called “Dashimaki-tamago”, Japanese omelet, seasoned with dashi, Japanese soup stock made from fish and kelp. We recommend that you eat with grated radish that comes with this omelet. You may enjoy different taste if you put soy sauce as well.
